Lil Uzi Vert Prepares For Forehead Diamond Implant

Lil Uzi Vert is spending $24 million to embed a small pink diamond in his forehead. Hunger Games vibe, anyone? The rapper, known for his spontaneity, is now ready to never part with the diamond. A rare piece that he spent three years paying off.

This decision is either a very tactical move on Lil Uzi Vert’s part, or it is the most elaborate and premature April Fool’s prank we have seen in a while. Either way, it has definitely caught the world’s attention. Now would be a great time to drop that album, Vert!

Au Naturel

On Saturday, January 31st, Lil Uzi Vert hit up his Twitter timeline to share how excited he is to get the pink diamond. In his string of tweets, Uzi reveals that he began paying millions for the all-natural diamond after he first laid eyes on it back in 2017. He asserts that the diamond itself costs more than the current assets in his possession from his home to his Bugatti.

“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” Uzi tweeted. “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.”

“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,” the ‘Eternal Atake’ rapper wrote in another tweet.

Lil Uzi also reveals that the diamond contains at least 10-11 carats and that it’s his biggest purchase ever. The jeweler Elliot Avianne a.k.a Eliantte, has provided numerous custom-made chains and other jewelry to celebrities for the past few years. In 2020, the jeweler assisted Roddy Ricch by crafting a diamond chain with a custom-made charm that honors the late Nipsey Hussle.

Joke’s On Us

We’re all thinking the same thing. Must be nice, being that rich. But until that day comes, when we can all walk around with diamonds in our skulls, one can only wonder.

When asked by a fan why he wouldn’t just immortalize the stone in a piece of jewelry, he quipped back with a completely logical reason.

“If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha… And yes I do have insurance,” he said. Thank God for that.
