The ‘Trap Corrido’ rapper has apparently replaced his hair with gold chains after getting hooks ‘surgically implanted’ on his head for them to hang off.
Dan Sur first rose to fame for doing a Mariachi cover of Lil Nas X’s hit ‘Old Town Road’.
While he has continued with his rap career and released several tracks, he is probably best known for the drastic change in his appearance, which has seen him become a viral sensation.
Instead of simply getting a haircut or even dying it, the ‘Bonk Bonk’ rapper decided to ‘do something different’ and had hooks surgically implanted under the skin on his skull.
He then had gold chains hanging off them to make up his new headpiece.
Dan Sur explained that he wants to look like he’s just stepped ‘straight out of a jewellery store’ when announcing it on TikTok.
He said: “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.
“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.
“This is my hair. Golden hair. The first rapper to have gold hair implanted in human history.”
Dan Sur’s videos have attracted millions of views on TikTok and seen the artist’s following soar from 12,000 to a staggering seven million.
People have also taken to social media to react to Sur’s new look.

One user comments: “He will have real spinal problems… his head will be too heavy for his neck. Literally…”
Another person adds: “Damn that’s going to hurt like hell if someone snatches all that gold off his head.”
“There really needs to be a line where doctors step in and say this is too far,” writes a third.
“Nightmare going through airport security I bet,” quips someone else.
A fifth user points out: “So what happens when his natural hair grows? It’ll get tangled in the chains and be impossible to cut.”
If for some reason you wanted to undergo a similar procedure, a plastic surgeon named Dr Frank Agullo has warned against people from implanting anything into their heads and has outlined the possible dangers you could face.
“Implants like this are not safe,” he tells Yahoo! News. “They introduce an easy path for bacteria between the outside world and the internal body. In this case, the bone covering the brain.
“In addition, I am concerned about the amount of weight these hooks are supporting.
“The weight or any accidental tug on a band of gold could cause the implant to dislodge and even fracture the skull.”
While musicians can be known to have extravagant procedures, Dan Sur may have competition from Lil Uzi Vert, who spent a staggering $24 million on having a pink diamond placed in his forehead.
However, he said he almost lost it while performing.
He told TMZ: “I had a show at Rolling Loud [festival], and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out.”
Fortunately for him, he did manage to retrieve it.
