To kick off the new year, rapper Plies stepped out with a new look that has social media going crazy. The Florida rapper — known for hits like “Shawty,” Bust It Baby” and “Ran Off On Da Plug Twice” — has officially retired his signature gold grill.
On Friday, Plies uploaded a photo of his teeth and new smile. “I showed my mom my new smile. She hugged me, started crying and said ‘I finally got my baby back. One of the proudest days of my life,” he captioned the Instagram post. “2021 I might just turn into a full-time brand ambassador with this new smile.”
Plies admitted he was “shy” to show off his teeth after uploading a video of himself Thursday, which shows the rapper having a funeral for his grill.
“I Never thought in a million years this day would come!! I wanted elevation so I stepped out on faith,” wrote Plies, sharing a video of himself burying the grill in the dirt. “I Heard Women Love Men With Pretty Smiles!” he added.
Seems most of his fans agree. Most of the social media comments were from women who called Plies’ everything from “handsome” and “sexy” to “nice” and “beautiful.”
One fan wrote, “Took 10 years off of you,” while another said, “He actually looks better without them golds in his teeth.”
Others think he still might be mistaken for his regular doppelgänger: legendary gospel singer Kirk Franklin. “[You] look like a younger Kirk Franklin,” wrote one fan.
