Trick Daddy has invested some of his hard-earned money into fixing his teeth, thirty years after he originally filled his mouth with gold grills.
The Miami rapper (real name Maurice Young) went to 5 Star Smiles, a company based in Coral Gables, FL, to get his grills replaced with veneers.
Danielle Noguera, who owns 5 Star Smiles, told TMZ that Trick Daddy has dropped more than $60,000 on the procedure so far — and that he’ll come back in 2 months to get the bottom teeth replaced.
What’s more, the “Thug Holiday” rapper — who hadn’t gone to the dentist in more than 15 years — had suffered from a severe bout of tooth decay, which is why he ultimately decided to get his teeth fixed.
Love & Hip Hop Miami fans will be able to check out the whole procedure when a new season of the hit reality show debuts later this year.
Meanwhile, Trick Daddy continues to push his newest cooking show called I Got My Pots, and he recently earned the ire of Uncle Murda.
On the February 16 episode of the show, Trick accused Uncle Murda of attempting to use the tragedies in other people’s lives to force a viral moment with his annual ‘Rap Up’ tracks.
In what appeared to be a planned portion of the show, the “Take It To The House” rapper started out with a blanket statement about how ridiculous he found anyone who goes out of their way to create a viral moment. “Viral is something that you do accidentally,” he started. “Anybody that tries to go viral, you are considered, to me, as a clown. You’re a joke. You’re a fool. You’re a gimmick. You’re a fraud. You catfish.”
He then addressed Uncle Murda directly, referring to him as “the No. 1 clown for the last five years” and calling him to task for trying to profit from the difficult moments in other people’s lives by including them in his year-end songs.
Upon spotting the I Got My Pots segment on social media, Uncle Murda reposted the clip of Trick Daddy’s rant to his Instagram page and proceeded to troll him in the post’s caption, adding a hashtag that almost ensures fans will hear the clip again.
“This shit got me rolling [crying laughing emojis],” he wrote. “Dammmm all that my nigga @trickdaddydollars mad at me cause I called him a coke head #RapUp2023Intro”
