Artists always push boundaries when it comes to fashion, but a recent move by Mexican rapper Dan Sur has some shaking their heads! Learn about the new do that the artist is sporting in the New York Post article by Rob Bailey-Millado below.
Attention-hungry rapper-reggaeton star Dan Sur has adopted a look that is sure to fill even the most diehard hip-hop fans with dread.
This 23-year-old Mexican goldilocks claims he’s the “first rapper … in human history” to rock an assortment of gold chains as “hair” hanging from hooks he surgically implanted into his scalp.
“The truth is that I wanted to do something different because I see that everyone dyes their hair. I hope not everyone copies me now,” he said in one of the TikTok videos he shared with his 1.9 million followers on the streaming platform.
The flashy entertainer reportedly underwent the bizarre surgery — which involved dozens of gold chains — in April.
“I have it as a hook that is implanted in my head and that hook has hooks and they are all hooked in my skull, under my skin,” Sur said in another viral clip. “
This is my hair. Golden hair. The first rapper to have gold hair implanted in human history.”
Some media outlets have proffered that Sur was inspired by rapper Lil Uzi Vert, who went viral earlier this year when he hyped spending $24 million on a “natural” pink diamond embedded into his forehead.
Of course, that didn’t turn out so well: Vert, 26, now claims a fan ripped the precious gem out of his head at the Rolling Loud music festival in July, but he was able to retrieve it. “I’m feeling good,” he told TMZ. “I still have the diamond, so I feel good.”
Meanwhile, deep dive into Sur’s Instagram page uncovers the more traditional look he used to sport back in 2019 before his unusual hair-replacement procedure:
