Travis Scott Drops $25,000 on Colorful New Grills
Travi$ Scott has money to blow and it's apparent with the new accessory he recently gifted himself.
The "Pornography" rapper spent some big bucks on a set of new grills. Scott tapped the famed Johnny Dang, otherwise known as TV Johnny, for the custom piece. The jeweler revealed the rhymer's pricey grills on Instagram, showing off the colorful diamonds in a video. "Brand new for my brother @travisscott #grillsmaster #diamondboyz," Dang wrote.
TMZ got some information on the grills, which are crafted in 18-carat gold and filled with 10-carat blue, white, pink and brown diamonds. The price tag for a multi-colored set like this? $25,000.
Scott will likely unveil his glittering mouthpiece when he hits the stage to perform songs from his Rodeo album on Rihanna's ANTI World Tour dates this month.
Grills are nothing new in hip-hop, but rappers flossing a mouth full of colored diamonds is becoming increasingly popular. Tyga just copped some purple grills, however, his new purchase didn't go down without scrutiny from others. Stylist Ian Connor, who's worked with the likes of A$AP Rocky and Kanye West, accused Tyga of jacking his style by buying similar grills.
“Damn Tyga,” Connor tweeted with disappointed emoji faces when he got word his new set. The "Dope'd Up" rhymer didn't brush off the words and replied, “Damn Tyga what.” Connor decided to throw up a few photos of himself wearing his own Ben Baller-designed grills and responded with, “Shoulda Fucked With Ben Baller Cus Ya Diamonds Looking Gapped Blood."
Connor's even taking notice of how much money the "Antidote" rapper spent on his diamonds. "Just Had To Beat Me By 5k Huh@BENBALLER What Up?" he wrote on Twitter after reading the story on Scott's purchase.
If anyone should be calling out rappers it's Pharrell, who's the king of kaleidoscopic grills. Take a look below.
