Eddie Plein, the godfather of grills, is credited with kick-starting the trend for gold teeth in Hip Hop.
He opened his first store in Queens back in the 80s, making custom fronts for trend-setters like Just Ice and Flavor Flav. In the 90s he moved to Atlanta and brought removable grills to the South.
According to Eddie’s MySpace page he made the fronts that Nas is wearing in the video for “Thief’s Theme”.
