KEY POINTS

  • Lil Uzi Vert was once named one of the highest paid rappers  
  • He did collaborations with Migos, The Weeknd and Gucci Mane
  • The rapper has a $24 million diamond implant in his forehead  

Lil Uzi Vert has a net worth of $16 million. With a massive fortune, he can afford splurging on many things, including a diamond that’s been implanted into his forehead.

The rapper made headlines after implanting a diamond into his forehead. What made it more shocking is the price tag of the diamond that is at $24 million. Given that Lil Uzi Vert is a multimillionaire, his latest stunt proved the super wealthy can do just about anything. That means even going over personal net worth for a body bling.

The extravagant piercing costs a lot. The Francisville, North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native admitted he has been paying for it since 2017. The amount spent on the pink diamond is allegedly more than all his cars and home combined, per Metro. The natural pink diamond was bought from Elliot Eliantte.

The 24-year-old posted a picture on his Instagram and it drew mixed reactions from commenters. Some claimed it was extra and unnecessary while others supported his decision as long as he’s happy.

In 2017 to 2018, Lil Uzi Vert earned around $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, which made him one of the highest paid rappers at the time. He achieved it by touring non-stop, releasing hit songs and collaborating with other artists.

His videos also raked in more than 3 billion views on streaming platforms. He entered the music scene in 2014 with “Purple Thoughtz Vol 1.” The rapper gained a following and broke out in 2016 with “Money Longer.” The song reached the 54th spot in Billboard 200.

Born Symere Woods, the multimillionaire also released mixtapes that received rave reviews from industry experts. Among them are "The Real Uzi," "Luv is Rage," and "Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World."

He has collaborations with Migos, A$AP Ferg, Mac Miller, Gucci Mane, The Weeknd and Post Malone, among others. Woods’ debut studio album "Luv Is Rage 2” made the top spot in the Billboard 200 albums chart. 

On the personal side, Woods once dated Brittany Byrd. Lil Uzi Vert decided to stay away from alcohol and drugs after fellow rapper and close friend Lil Peep died due to drug overdose. The death of another close friend, XXXTentacion, prompted the "XO Tour Llif3" rapper to urge other rappers to start a foundation against gun violence.
