Nobody imagined that this day would ever come-- not even the man himself-- but 44-year-old Florida rapper Plies has officially retired his gold teeth, taking out his grills and showing off his pearly whites for the first time in decades.

One of the most well-known gold-teeth fanatics, Plies has been rocking a flashy smile for years. His teeth have been gold for the longest time and it has basically become a core part of his personality. That part of him has been put to the side though as Plies finally took out the mouthpiece and held an entire funeral service for his gold teeth, burying them in the dirt.
