The COVID-19 pandemic has presented financial challenges for countless Americans, but then there’s rappers like Lil Uzi Vert who apparently have millions to spare. On Wednesday (February 3), the Eternal Atake rapper showed off a new pink diamond he placed slightly off-center in his forehead allegedly worth $24 million.

Lil Uzi made the reveal in a FaceTime call with music executive Slowbucks who shared a screenshot of it to his Instagram account.

“He really went in did it 24mill on his head,” he captioned the post. “What y’all thinking about?”

People couldn’t help but notice the implant wasn’t properly centered and comments such as “is it too late to move it over just half an inch” and “why it crooked” started pouring in on The Shade Room‘s post.

Lil Uzi revealed he was getting the diamond implant in a series of tweets on January 30, explaining he’d been on a payment plan with celebrity jeweler Elliot Eliantte since 2017.

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

Bu not everybody is impressed by the $24 million splurge — especially not Sauce Walka. Shortly after Lil Uzi made the announcement, the Texas native — who has his own $250,000 diamond tear drop dermal face piercing — accused Lil Uzi of biting his style.

“Keep following The leader lol,” Sauce captioned a subsequent Instagram post. “YALL LOOK AT @eliantte @liluzivert GETTIN TO COPY A NIGGA DRIP dick munching my style for 4-5 years lol yal still can’t see this shit DRIPGOD IS MY NAME TooMuchSauce lol S/o @liluzivert I KNO IM THE INFLUENCE TO YOUR INSPIRATION.”

Last December, Sauce blasted Eliantte for being an alleged fraud, calling him a “fake diamond selling bitch” in a two-minute Instagram video. He also wrongly stated Lil Uzi refused to do business with him.

“I fuck with Takeoff, I fuck with Quavo, I fuck with the Migos — I got a relationship with them,” he said at the time. “Them like my brothers, we can fuck around like that. You!, You, ‘We getting arab money,’ I don’t know you.

“You want to know why Uzi don’t fuck with you, you want to know why Lil Baby don’t fuck with you, all these rappers that done got jewelry made by you and didn’t buy it? Cuz your diamonds is fake.”
