Trick Daddy, the Liberty City rapper known for his signature gold teeth, has recently undergone a significant transformation. His estranged wife, Joy Young, admitted in a recent interview on the We In Miami Podcast that she never really liked his gold teeth, describing him as too “thug” when they first met. The couple, who married in 2003 and divorced in 2022, had their relationship and subsequent separation featured prominently on the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop Miami.
In a surprising turn of events, Trick Daddy has replaced his gold teeth with real ones, a procedure that reportedly cost him $60,000. This change came after the rapper was suffering from severe tooth decay, as revealed by his dental surgeon, Danielle Noguera. The procedure will be documented in the upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop Miami, providing fans with an intimate look at this personal journey.
In addition to his personal life, Trick Daddy has been making waves professionally. He continues to promote his new cooking show, I Got My Pots, which has been met with mixed reactions. Recently, he stirred controversy by accusing fellow rapper Uncle Murda of exploiting other people’s tragedies for profit in his annual “Rap Up” tracks. This led to a heated exchange between the two, with Uncle Murda responding on Instagram.
Trick Daddy has been open about his health struggles. He underwent surgery to remove his gold grills after 30 years, marking his first appointment with a dentist in 15 years. The rapper’s face has also been affected due to lupus, a condition he has been battling for years.
Despite the controversies, Trick Daddy remains a prominent figure in the hip-hop scene. However, his comments about Beyoncé have drawn criticism from her fans, leading to a flood of negative reviews for his Miami Gardens restaurant, Sunday’s Eatery. As Trick Daddy navigates these personal and professional challenges, fans and critics alike will be watching to see what the next chapter holds for this influential rapper.
