Most people, when they earn ridiculous amounts of money, do things to upgrade their lives and living. For many, a massive mansion atop a hill (or anywhere for that matter) would be the dream purchase. Or perhaps a luxury foreign car or more to increase the flex. There are also those that would pay every debt they have acquired over their lifespan. What happens when you possibly have done all of the above but yet you want more? Ask rapper Lil Uzi Vert.
Rappers are known for their lavish and outlandish purchases over time, especially when it comes to their jewelry. Rick Ross famously got a chain made of his face. Kanye West got a massive gold chain made to resemble the Egyptian god, Horus. Perhaps the most ridiculous of them all was when T-Pain got the words “Big A** Chain” weighing over 10 pounds and containing 200 karats worth of diamonds.
Lil Uzi Vert has social media in a complete frenzy thanks to his latest splurge that happens to be a permanent fixture on his body, leaps, and bounds above a tattoo. Already plastered with tattoos around his face and body, as well as piercings, the Philadelphia native just unveiled a massive forehead piercing in the form of a huge pink diamond.
The super rare diamond from Eliantte is worth $24 million, which the rapper has revealed that over the last four years he’s been paying off. “I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” the rapper tweeted recently. “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.”

For fans who were in disbelief of the rapper, he uploaded an image to prove that he went ahead with the actual piercing. “It’s 10 almost 11 carats,” he said. As fans began to ridicule the rapper for his piercing, with some clowning him for the similarities to Marvel characters, Uzi took to his Instagram story to clarify its positioning. “Y’all keep talking about it’s off, it still has a long bar in it so it can move ‘cause of the swelling,” said the “XO TOUR Llif3” rapper. “When it goes down, it gon’ be right there.”
Uzi’s newest acquisition was revealed to cost more than most of his possessions. “Yes my Bugatti can’t even pay for it … all my cars together, plus home, this took so long now I can get this money,” he said in response to a Twitter user.
Fans of the rapper were concerned once he posted a bloody selfie of himself via Twitter. “If I don’t get it took out the right way, I could die …..,” he wrote along with a selfie showing blood dripping from the diamond. “No seriously.” After his supporters tweeted their concerns to him, he has since deleted the tweet and has posted another with a video that shows the area cleaned up. “Ok we good,” reassured Uzi.
