Lil Uzi Vert now has a dangerous $24 million diamond into his head. Suspiciously, his attempt to embed a flawless pink diamond in the middle of his forehead has gone horribly wrong.
Rap star Lil Uzi could be forced to remove a pink diamond he recently had implanted into his forehead. The Philly rap star took to Instagram to show a photo of blood pouring from behind the diamond, which is right between his eyes.
On February 3rd, he showcased the results of the surgical procedure to have the diamond planted into his forehead.
Lil Uzi’s $24 million flex drew mixed results. Some of his fans praised him for making a fashion statement, while others felt he had may have signed his own death warrant for having such a dangerous jewel embedded into his face.
According to Page Six, the whole process cost Uzi $24 million, which is enough to make a straight-to-Netflix movie. The diamond comes from designer Elliot Eliantte, and it’s between ten and eleven karats. Uzi and Eliantte have both posted videos of Uzi with the diamond. It looks nuts.

On Twitter, Uzi says that he’s been paying for the diamond since 2017, that it’s his favorite material possession, and that it’s insured.
Now look, this is mostly just having some fun with Uzi Vert’s silly new fashion statement. However, don’t you come crying to me when he takes over the cathedral in your hometown and turns the catacombs into a portal to hell. All I’m saying is that if Duriel shows up in the Mohave Desert later this year don’t blame me. I’m just the messenger.
