There was an internet firestorm when US Olympian swimmer, Ryan Lochte, wore an American flag grill while receiving his gold medal. Some are calling it a “disgrace” to our country. I call it awesome. So where did the grill come from?

If you guessed the people’s champ, Paul Wall, you guessed right! Paul spoke to XXL magazine about the mouth-piece:

“For him to represent us and our culture, the grill culture, it’s just shining a light on hip-hop in the Olympics. Everyone’s talking about it…it’s just an incredible thing to be part of. I’m just honored to be part of it. There’s not too many world-class swimmers wearing our grill.”

It seems there are more grills to be made! Paul announced he will make a free gold grill for any U.S. Olympian who wins a gold medal. For this, I give Paul Wall the gold medal for patriotism! Nothing says “America” like a face full of bling, baby!
