Is Rapper Dan Sur cool, crazy or somewhere in between? The 23-year-old Mexican musical artist, who is best known for his songs, “Se Siente Sola” and “Dan Sur,” says he is the first rapper in human history to have a series of gold chains on his head. Even more shocking? He had the bling surgically implanted into his scalp!

The rapper showed off his new hair in a series of viral TikTok videos that have many fans wondering what to think.

The bizarre act was reportedly done to give Rapper Dan Sur an edge – the rapper claimed he got the gold chains surgically implanted in order to stand out and be unique among other artists. The chains are hanging from hooks on his head, making it appear like he has solid gold hair. Some fans online said the fashion choice was strange, while others insisted it was the coolest thing they had ever seen.

“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,” the rapper explained in Spanish on TikTok. Dan Sur has 1.9 million followers on the platform, though he expects his unique choice will garner him a few more fans.

He claimed in a separate video that he has “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.” He told his viewers that “this is my hair. Golden hair. The first rapper to have gold hair implanted in human history.”

While it’s not entirely practical, Rapper Dan Sur isn’t the first performing artist to attempt to stand out in the crowd. Some media outlets have claimed that the Mexican musician was following in the footsteps of Lil Uzi Vert, who shared a video in February that showed off a massive pink diamond that was pierced into his forehead.

“Beauty is pain,” the rapper captioned the video, though it was eventually taken down. Months later, Lil Uzi Vert had the $24 million pink diamond ripped from his skull after he dove into a crowd at the Rolling Loud music festival in July.

“I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out,” he told reporters at an anniversary party at JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club in New York City. He did admit that “I’m feeling good. I still have the diamond so I feel good.”

According to the rapper, he had been paying for the gem since 2017 before he was allowed to implant it in his head. He claimed that it was “the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face.” He said that “this one stone cost so much.”

It wasn’t confirmed whether Rapper Dan Sur was copying Lil Uzi Vert, however, it’s certainly believable that the gold chains were somehow inspired by the famous pink diamond. Fans are certainly curious how much the solid gold hair cost the Mexican rapper, though Dan Sur refused to divulge that info. It likely wasn’t anywhere near the $24 million pink diamond implanted into Vert’s skull.

Originally, Rapper Dan Sur sported naturally occurring black hair, which he often wore in dreadlocks. He was last seen with that look in April before the gold chains began dangling from his scalp. The rapper then posted his reveal on April 10, with a picture that showed him next to a stack of solid gold bars.

Rapper Dan Sur proved to fans that his golden hair was not plastic but was 100% real!

“I don’t paint my hair like all these Takashi clones,” he captioned the picture. He then warned others not to “copy” him. When someone commented on his post that the gold chains were “fake,” the rapper told his Instagram followers to follow him on TikTok, too, where he explained his crazy fashion choice. And also proved it was real gold!
