To celebrate Kid Cudi‘s induction into the Celebrity Fake Teeth Wall Of Fame, we highlight other rap stars who have had some dental reconstruction done.
If you have yet to see the big screen debut of Scott Mescudi, better known as Kid Cudi, then you’ve missed his cosmetic update. The former G.O.O.D. Music talent debuted his new celebrity smile during the red carpet premiere of Need For Speed.
Veneers, better known around the industry as “fake teeth worn by celebrities,” are all about appearances. In the celebrity crazed culture of the entertainment business, there is nothing more important than having a great smile. While many famous people have shelled out a lot of dough to get false teeth, caps, veneers and even dentures, we’ve decided to commemorate Kid Cudi’s cosmetic porcelain decision by spotlighting 13 other Hip-Hop stars who also have fake teeth.
Nowadays, it is pretty easy to spot those not-so-real smiles, but we start off with someone who actually needed to get work done after a life-altering accident.
The Louis Vuitton Don managed to stir up a bit of hoopla when he tweeted a photo of his permanent gold-and-diamond grill. Since then, he’s managed to cause more ruckus for his love life than dental decisions, but people will be upset no matter what he does.
The brand new Kid Cudi is fresh off of the G.O.O.D. Music label, celebrating his role in the new Need For Speed movie and, of course, highlighting his brand new chompers. They make him look like a totally different person.
The Goodie Mob frontman and celebrated singer has had his new teeth for awhile. He put them in after cashing those big checks for writing hit songs for acts like The Pussycat Dolls, Solange Knowles, and Jennifer Hudson.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson
Fif’s made no secret that he’s had work done, as he more than likely did it to help boost his acting career. In fact, he even said that he wanted to keep the gap, “so I can still recognize me in the mirror.”
Before he decided to “put the paws” on everybody, Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy’s mouth looked like he ate a few knuckle sandwiches himself. He finally put his money where his teeth should have been by getting veneers in 2011.
2009 was the height of Weezy F. Baby’s rap dominance, and so he decided that his worth (and words) were precious. Just like those weird eyelid tattoos, Baby’s baby spent $150,000 to enhance his smile and forever only be able to talk about money.
The legendary Queens, New York rapper was mostly known for his great lyrical ability and his chipped tooth. After squashing the battle with Jay Z and becoming a member of the Def Jam family, the Hip-Hop legend fixed the chip and broke the hearts of females worldwide.WENN
The former A Tribe Called Quest member and reality TV mainstay became the butt of memes and Internet jokes when audiences finally got a view of his ginormous denture job.
The author of “Grillz” decided that he wanted a life change and got rid of the gold in favor of a classy new pair of teeth.
It’s no secret that the Disturbing Tha Peace frontman has been shying away from the booth in favor of high Hollywood paying gigs. After cutting off his trademark braids, he stepped up and got some veneers to match his Tinsel Town ambitions.
Brooklyn’s own Kimberly Jones has had a lot of work done. From her cheeks to her nose to rumors of her skin being bleached, so it comes as no surprise that she would also have her teeth fixed.
Clifford “T.I.” Harris
Grand Hustle CEO Clifford “T.I.” Harris revealed that teeth issues led to his dependency of drugs. So, in order to kick the habit, he shelled out $50,000 for some brand new food munchers. Was it worth it?
Bryan “Birdman” Williams
Bryan “Birdman” Williams‘ life can be summed up in four short word: “Like father, like son”. After Weezy ponied up $150,000 to have a more expensive smile, the Cash Money co-founder dropped heavy weight to the tune of $500,000 for his updated grill. He still hasn’t found a way to turn rubbing one’s hands into a successful money-making venture though.
Back in the late-eighties, early nineties, Oakland rapper Too $hort looked like he was chomping on as many rocks as he was selling. In an attempt to ensure his legacy would last more than a few years, the raunchy MC got his crown molding fixed up so all the beaches could enjoy his million dollar smile.
As per your suggestion in the comments, Queens rapper Nicki Minaj probably has had a lot of work done elsewhere. But while we’ll never see those doctor notes, what is plainly obvious is that much like her Cash Money / Young Money family, Nicki has put some considerable cash in more things than just her arse.
