How's this for irony? The rapper "T-Pain" recently suffered a dental injury in which he lost four anterior teeth! Unfortunately for T-Pain, this injury did nothing for his street cred. Immediately after it happened, rumors began circulating that he crashed his golf-cart while backstage. He addressed these rumors at a concert several days later:

Personally, I think this is a great opportunity to start the next big hip-hop dental fad. Gold teeth have been done, grillz are so played out, and diamonds are just too expensive for the average would-be rapper. T-Pain, I hereby issue you the challenge to come up with the next big thing that will keep guys like me busy doing totally unnecessary procedures for up-and-coming rappers trying to make a name for themselves. Show me what you've got.
