When one thinks of the Brooklyn rapper Fabolous, his glorified chip tooth also rings a bell. He’s rapped about it, remember? “You love my smile no matter how chipped my tooth is” he professed on Tamia’s 1998 hit song “So Into You.”
But now, decades into his career, the rapper has decided to fix his grill, reportedly spending $40k on a dental procedure. According to TMZ, the 39-year-old lyricist bought himself 10 new veneers just ahead of New York Fashion week earlier this month. The reports show that he went to Cosmetic Dentist Mojgan Fajiram, who practices in the Upper East Side in New York City.
As spur of the moment as this decision seemed to many, this wasn’t a major surprise as he told Angie Martinez in 2011, “I’m going to get all of my teeth fixed soon.I’m getting too old to have a chipped tooth in my mouth,” he said.
