Last month the rapper re-implanted his reported $24million diamond back into his head after removing it in June.

The rapper unveiled the new look in February and said that the pink rock is “10, almost 11 carats”, and also is the most expensive purchase he has ever made.

Despite a representative for jeweller Elliott Eliantte claiming that the diamond was as “safe as any other piercing”, Uzi claimed in June that the rock was causing him bleeding and that he would need to have it removed.


Elsewhere, Vert reportedly has his sights set on buying a planet, an acquisition which – if it were to go through – would make him the “first human to legally own a planet”, according to Grimes.

The electronic artist tweeted in July that documentation was “almost complete” for Lil Uzi Vert to legally claim the planet WASP-127b, a gas giant exoplanet 1.4 times larger than Jupiter that was discovered in 2016.

Lil Uzi Vert’s last album was 2020’s ‘Pluto x Baby Pluto’ with Future.
