Rapper Lil Uzi Vert got a $24 million diamond implanted on his forehead.
The pink, 11-carat diamond, which equates to about £17.6 millon, is fully attached to Lil Uzi Vert's head, right between his eyebrows.
The Philadelphia-born rapper said he'd been paying off the diamond since 2017, having bought it from jeweller Elliot Eliantte.
I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now . This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. ♦️ A lot of M’s in my face 🤫 💰 💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰— Uzi London 🌎☄️💕® (@LILUZIVERT) January 30, 2021
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'.
Lil Uzi Vert's last album 'Eternal Atake' came out in 2020, as well as deluxe album 'Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World 2' and the collaborative 'Pluto x Baby Pluto' with Future. He's also worked with the likes of Young Thug, Syd, Pharrell Williams, The Weeknd, Chief Keef and Playboi Carti.
