Olympic Swim star, Ryan Lochte (or as we’ve come to know him as Swim Thugga), made a pretty big stir when he showed up to his medal ceremony with an ice grill of the U.S.A. flag. As it turns out, Lochte must have paid extra for his Premium hood pass as XXL revealed that Paul Wall & TV Johnny were the ones who made the Olympic-style grill.

“For him to represent us and our culture, the grill culture, it’s just shining a light on hip-hop in the Olympics,” the People’s Champ toldXXL.  “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.”
