Mexican Rapper Implants Gold Chains into his Scalp, Becomes the First to Do So
Rappers, irrespective of where they come from, resort to peculiar ways in the quest of adorning the most unique and noticeable signature looks. They often even cross the limits of experimenting with their bodies in the bid to do so. At least, that’s what Dan Sur did. The Mexican rapper implanted gold chains into his scalp and entirely replaced his real hair with it!
Dan Sur, a rising Mexican musician, can now be seen flaunting his goldilocks in several of his social media posts and music videos. Keep scrolling down to know why and how Dan Sur replaced his real hair with gold chains.
This is why and how the rapper implanted gold chains.
Dan Sur, who originally had long stylized black dreads, entirely removed his natural hair and implanted gold chains into his scalp in 2021. There’s a bizarre reason why Dan got golden chains as hair. The then 23-year-old rapper wanted to do something different than just color-dying his hair as everyone else was doing the same. So, he decided that, instead of dying his hair, he would replace them with gold chains in the hope that no one copies his unique gold chain hair look.
It is unclear as to how much the reggaetón artist spent installing the gold chains on his scalp, but he mentioned that he spared no expense in the process. As for the question of how he installed those shiny gold chains, he has hooks implanted in his skull that have chains hooked to them. Apparently, Dan is the first known person to undergo such an implant.
However, Dan has been alleged to have implanted fake gold chains. The rapper, therefore, has several times taken to TikTok to assert that the locks are genuine gold. He took a glass of water and drowned the chains in it to point out that the chains are real gold and not fake. Although the method does not seem very convincing, many of his fans still believe that the chains are real gold.
Dan has over 150k followers on Instagram and more than 6 million followers on TikTok. While the fans appreciate Dan Sur’s gold chain hair, he often has to face backlash and trolling for replacing his real hair with gold chains.
Gold chain implants of the rapper might have been inspired by Lil Uzi Vert.

The rapper’s gold chain implants are reportedly inspired by an American rapper, Lil Uzi Vert. Uzi went viral on social media in early 2021 when he embedded a $24 million natural pink diamond into his forehead. He implanted the gigantic 10-carat diamond into his forehead using the transdermal or micro dermal implant technique. The process involves placing a thin but wide anchor under the skin to which the gem is embedded using small posts.
However, in a bizarre turn of events, Uzi’s $24 million diamond was ripped out of his head during one of his performances! The incident occurred during his concert at the Rolling Loud music festival in July 2021. Uzi, while performing, dove into the crowd for crowd surfing when his big jewel got ripped off. Luckily, he was able to retrieve the diamond.
Just like Dan Sur, the rapper who implanted gold chains for hair, these rappers also have unusual body implants.
1 Post Malone’s Diamond Fang Implants
Post Malone, an American rapper singer, implanted two 6-carat diamond fangs in his canine teeth in June 2021. The 12-carat implant has reportedly cost Malone around $ 1.6 million. The two diamond fangs are framed into natural porcelain veneers to give the rapper a multi-million dollar smile – literally!
Malone was inspired by his dentist, Dr. Connelly’s diamond embedding work, which he had done for other celebrities. So, during one of his visits, Malone asked Dr. Connelly if he could implant a tooth made of diamond instead of just diamond embedding.
It took Dr. Connelly almost one and a half years to figure out how to create a diamond tooth, followed by a couple of months to insert the implants. Connelly sourced diamonds from Belgium and got them cut in Israel.
2 Cardi B’s Iconic Piercings
Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar Cephus, who goes by the stage name of “Cardi B,” is an American rapper. The singer, who is often seen rocking unusual styles, got her lip pierced in 2019 for a mere $25. Cardi B reportedly walked into Luis Vega’s tattoo shop, City of Angels Tattoos in Los Angeles, and asked for a lip piercing. More interestingly, Lui, the owner, did not even know that Cardi B was a popular celebrity. Although Luis thought Cardi B looked familiar, he could not recognize her until Cardi B told him that she was from New York. Cardi B also got new piercings during 2020, which included a new labret lip piercing and a couple of chest piercings.
3 Renato De Santa’s Demon Smile
Renato de Santa is perhaps the most bizarre-looking rapper who ripped the flesh off his cheeks in 2021 to adorn a “demon smile.” The smile being termed the “Glasgow Smile,” was created using a scalpel. Renato’s smile is inspired by Kuchisake-Onna, a Japanese legend whose mouth is split from ear to ear.
Apart from so many tattoos all over his body and face, he also has several implants under the skin. He installed these implants to get horns at different parts of the body. Renato also tattooed his eyeballs to give them a pitch-black color. He has the number “666” carved into his head, got a flesh-tunnel piercing, and also got a split tongue. All of these extreme modifications give Renato a distinctive look, which, as of today, has cost him more than $10,000.
4 Lil Wayne’s diamond teeth
Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., who goes by the stage name “Lil Wayne,” has been wearing grills in the past. However, in 2010, the rapper revealed that he decided to undergo dental surgery to get his permanent diamond teeth. According to Lil Wayne, his diamond teeth cost more than $150,000.
However, the rapper was given a one-year jail sentence in a gun possession case. Lil Wayne had to remove his golden implants to serve the sentence.
5 6ix9ine’s Expensive Grills
Daniel Hernandez, aka “6ix9ine,” is another American rapper who adorns a particularly peculiar look. He has multi-colored dreads, face tattoos, and 18-carat diamond grills! The rapper has reportedly spent over $ 45k on the implant, which he got made from the celeb jeweler, Johnny Dang, in 2018. Johnny Dang, interestingly, manufactured and delivered the grills within 24 hours of receiving the order.
