The Philadelphia-born rapper said he'd been paying off the diamond since 2017, having bought it from jeweller Elliot Eliantte.

He's said he'll get a shorter bar in eventually, once the swelling subsides. It definitely doesn't look too painless and he posted a video on Instagram with the caption 'Beauty Is Pain'.
