" @ASAP ROCKN'... In Ghana it is said that once a Muslim makes al'hajj,he may get a gold tooth to signify his pilgrimmage. Louisiana, during slave trading days, imported many Africans from the Senegambia area, which even during those times was populated by Islamic African people.There are stories about how during slavery gold teeth helped to distinguish a "free" Black person from an enslaved one. Once a slave was freed, he/she may get a gold tooth to signify emancipation.  The act of using gold teeth to show status in society can be traced back to the ancient Mayans in Mexico and to several tribes on the African continent. Gold teeth were sometimes used to show wealth, but they were more commonly used to identify successful hunters or warriors. In the ancient societies, a person had to earn the right to have gold teeth. The presence of gold-capped teeth earned a person respect among his own people and with other tribes as well. People who live down south are familiar with the old tradition of wearing gold teeth. The tradition goes back further than most people might think.There are skulls dating 5,000 years with gold teeth.The ancient Mayans wore gold teeth as a sign of status or standing the community. #whitegold #9ctgold #gotgold #18ctgold #golddrips #slugz #melbournemade #goldteef #mouthfullofgold #customfitted #goldfronts #motivation #613 #findyourwhy #stayhungry #hardwork #money #jewelrygamestrong #wealthy #luxury #luxurylifestyle #jewelrygameonpoint #customwork #bigboytoys #billionares #weekend #beach #legitshit #realg #tattedup HIP-HOP🎙
