It looks like Florida rapper Plies is the latest rapper to say goodbye to his grills, and it looks like the ladies — including his mom — seem to prefer his pearly whites more.
He uploaded an Instagram selfie on Friday, Jan. 15, flaunting his new smile for his followers. The ladies in his comments took no time to tell the “Becky” rapper how good he looked.
One person said, “Babbyyyyyyyyyyy yes tf sir! Boy come on home I’m waiting at the mf doe OK!!!!😍.”
Another lady wrote, “THEM TEETH SAY GET ME PREGNANT 😍😍😍,” while someone else said, “Zamn Zaddy.”
The running joke for some years has been that Plies and gospel musician Kirk Franklin resemble each other a lot, so it was no surprise when one fan joked that Plies looked “like a younger Kirk Franklin🤣😭.”
Apparently, the new look did not only gain the approval of his female fans, but his mom loved it as well. He wrote in the caption: “I Just Showed My Mom My New Smile. She Hugged Me Started Crying & Said ‘I Finally Got My Baby Back’. 😍 One Of The Proudest Days Of My Life. 2021 I’m Might Just Turn Into A Full Time Brand Ambassador With This New Smile😬🤣 No C**chie Gettin Ate With These 🦷 😂 It Took Me So Long To Post This Pic Cause I Was Shy 🙈 🤣 (Ladies) How Did I Do??? #NewSmilePlies #Plies #Rock #Shawty #PlentyMoney #Shawty #BustItBaby #Drip4Sale”
Now fans of Plies know that he is a whole character on social media and keeps his followers laughing with his funny rants on Instagram. So, it’s only natural that after a decade of wearing the grills that he might be a little extra when letting them go. On Jan. 14, he held a nearly two-and-a-half-minute funeral for his dental jewelry and buried it while filming for Instagram.
He wrote, “I Never Thought In A Million Years This Day Would Come!! I Wanted Elevation So I Stepped Out On Faith!!”
Other rappers that have ditched their gold teeth for veneers are Moneybagg Yo, Cardi B, YFN Lucci, Blac Youngsta, and DaBaby, to name a few.
