Around 2006, they were mostly rocked by black American male hip-hop artists, hip-hop fans, and listeners; it was so odd and weird looking that a commentator said and even argued that it was going to fade away and forgotten.
However instead of fading away and becoming less fashionable, it became an accessory that received mainstream attention, even on network television it was being rocked by Ryan Lochte, an Olympic swimmer during the 2012 summer Olympics, where he wore a gold Grillz that was encrusted with diamonds that matched the American flag, he had previously rocked a different diamond Grill when he appeared earlier in the event.

Stars in the hip hop world like Kilo Ali, Tu pak Shakur, Raheem the dreamer started to rock this awesome mouth jewelry in the early 1980s.Eddie Plein a new Yorker, and the founder of Eddie's gold teeth, was often spotted making the trend much more popular in New York. He designed slugs for big daddy Kane and then decorated New York rappers like Flavor Fav and Kool G Rap. He subsequently took the merchandise to Atlanta where he crafted more sophisticated Grillz for hip hop artists like Ludacris, Out Kast, Goodie Mob, and Lil Jon, some researchers have also found that famous people like Afrika Bambaataa and Slick Rick were also some very prominent promoters of the wonderful mouth ornament.
This beautiful jewelry maintained its popularity in the southern United States, mostly in Memphis and Houston, even when it became an outdated or old school accessory in other places, then the awakening of dirty south rappers in 2000 fueled a world wide grill trend.
At that time Grillz was always used in hip hop music, even more so in 2005 hit jam "Grillz" by Paul Wall, Nelly, Ali, and Big Gipp and in some Paul Wall jams.Paul was known and well reputable as a result of his jewelry business and his rap songs, some of his clients were Cam'ron and Kanye West.The great gold caps refused to fade away like other less attractive trends and made its way into 2010, when French designer dolly Cohen created custom Grillz for super stars like Rita Ora, Rihanna, and Cara delevingne. And then in 2015, DJ Khaled made a song, called "Gold slugs" he featured August Alsina, fetty wap, and Chris Brown, Gold Slugs is another name used in identifying the dope mouth jewelry.Lоvе jеwеlrу?
