Rihanna Buys Diamond Grill Influenced By Late ODB

Rihanna Fenty has bought a grill influenced by legendary deceased Fort Greene-Brooklyn emcee Ol’ Dirty Bastard also known as Russell Ason Jones, which she wore at her son RZA’s Wu-Tang Clan-themed first birthday bash.

Gabby Elan Jewelry offered fans a closer glance at the glistening piece that she custom-designed for the Fenty mogul on Instagram on Monday (May 15).

Etched with 18-karat diamonds across the underneath and “Dirt” written across the top, the grill is actually a replica of one Dirt McGirt owned in the ’90s and was crafted by the same jeweller.

“Wu-Tang is for the Children @badgalriri with an O.D.B. inspired Diamond ‘Dirt’ Grill in 18kt. The original grill in the last slide was done by us in the early 90s,” Gabby Elan wrote.

The ‘Diamond’ hit crooner adorned herself with the custom grill at her son’s birthday party, where she dressed up as Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Her costume also included his signature corn rows and spiked-up braids along with a vintage Wu-Tang leather jacket.

Footage from the party saw baby RZA dressed up as his namesake, complete with a yellow eye mask, while A$AP Rocky channelled Ghostface Killah with a pink mink coat and winter knit hat.

Taking to Instagram over the weekend, Pretty Flacko shared a collection of photos with his firstborn boy, while also confirming that he and Riri did, indeed, name the baby after the Wu-Tang Clan visionary.

“‘WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN.’ HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN. RZA,” he wrote in the caption.

In the definitive comedown, Rocky disseminated a clip from the late ‘Baby Jesus’ Ason‘s history-making appearance at the 1998 Grammys when he crashed Shawn Colvin’s win by hopping onstage and shouting, “Wu-Tang is for the children!”

Stories of the power couple’s son’s name originally surfaced last week when The Daily Mail reportedly got its hands on the baby’s birth certificate, disclosing his name to be RZA Athelston Mayers. It also said he was born May 13 at 10:58 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Being named after legendary Hip Hop artists runs in the family as A$AP Rocky previously revealed he was named after Rakim.

Rapper A$ap Rocky and RiRi’s family will shortly evolve to welcome one more child. While an expected date hasn’t been disclosed, the Bajan megastar exhibited a substantial baby bump when she performed at the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show in February — which would mean Riri was already a few months along.
