Ryan Lochte“s unexpected grill flash during his Olympic medal ceremony was courtesy of none other than the grill-master himself … rapper Paul Wall.
If you recall … Lochte flashed a ruby and diamond studded American flag grill when he accepted his medal for the men”s 400-meter IM event on Saturday … but the genius behind the bling was “The Peoples Champ” himself.
Wall told XXLmag.com he was psyched to create the mouth piece, saying “Everyone’s talking about it … it’s just an incredible thing to be part of. There’s not too many world-class swimmers wearing our grill.”
The grill was hand crafted by Wall who boasted to the mag, “Every diamond is set by hand … one by one, prong set and all custom red rubies.”
Wall wouldn”t specify how much he charged Lochte for the grill … but says it”s worth between $15k and $25k. Wall added “Of course we gave him an Olympic discount.”
Worth every penny.
