Lil Uzi Vert Explains Why He Had $24 Million Diamond Implanted In His Forehead

Lil Uzi Vert has been roasted by fans for having a pink $24 million diamond implanted in his forehead -- speaking to Fat Joe, he explained his reasoning behind it.

He says he was worried about losing the diamond.

"I'm Lil Uzi. I'm turnt up. So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I'm gonna look down and that ring ain't gon' be there," he said. "I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries."

He said the people who implanted the diamond were not fans of the idea and tried to talk him out of the decision.

"Don't think it was just a 'come on, let's go get his money,'" he said. "No, bro, they argued me down. It's almost insane to the average person, or to any person."

If the diamond is removed the wrong way, Uzi could die. He says he's not afraid.

"I don't think that's going to happen because, come on, bro, we're in reality. I'm not scared to die, but who the f*ck wants to die?… If I wanted to die, Joe, I'm pretty sure I'd be dead. I know how to make a hit record and buy a $24 million diamond, I'm pretty sure I would be dead if I wanted to die."
