Every entertainer has their own sense of style. Some keep things lowkey and chill, while others live for the glitter and glitz. Rappers like newcomer Lil Uzi Vert definitely love color, the millions of tats and especially, the bling. For years, rappers have been recognized everywhere for their gold grills, pricey jewels or “iced-out” necklaces. Nowadays emcees are sporting pricey body piercings. In staying with the ever-growing trend, rapper Lil Uzi Vert flaunted his newest body piercing, a diamond forehead implant. The jewel cost the emcee so much money that he spent a total of 4 years paying it off to the jeweler. That’s one expensive diamond.
He Debuts His New Forehead Diamond Implant
Having a diamond implanted in your forehead is the craziest thing anyone can do. Lil Uzi Vert, however, doesn’t pay attention to the backlash over his body piercings. The eccentric rapper bares a series of facial piercings, including the bridge of his nose, the side of his lip and one of his cheeks. Recently, the emcee had an 11-carat diamond implanted into his forehead.
The 26-year-old flaunted the huge pink rock all over social media. Some fans claimed that the diamond looked crocked, but Lil Uzi Vert explained that the swelling has caused its “skewed” appearance. “Y’all keep talking about it off because I got a long bar in it so it can move ’cause of the swelling. When it go down, it gonna be right though,” the rapper told fans during an Instagram Live. The emcee further explained that once the swelling goes down, he’ll get a “short bar” to keep it centered. Bet people won’t miss him walking down the street.
The Rapper Spent 4 Years Owing Money To His Jeweler
Lil Uzi Vert obviously stands out from the league of new emcees. The 26-year-old certainly has a taste for the eccentric, given his pink diamond forehead implant. Not only does the jewel stand out, but so does its $24 million-dollar price tag. Lil Uzi explained on Twitter that he spent 4 years paying off the jewel to celebrity jeweler Elliot Eliantte. “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. Diamond suit A lot of M’s in my face,” the 26-year-old recently tweeted. Hopefully, the rock was worth the money.
