Nelly has brought the concept of oral bling to the forefront of mainstream fashion with his hip-hop hit "Grillz". This is a growing phenomena in the hip-hop culture. Don't be surprised if this new trend hangs around for long a time.
Many parents are hearing about this phenomena and are concerned about what exact “Grills Jewelry” is and whether or not they should be worried. Not only are parents concerned about the appearance but they are also concerned about the hygene that might result from the grillz.
