LIL UZI VERT STAGE DIVES AT ROLLING LOUD FESTIVAL

Lil Uzi Vert was one of the few many acts lined up for the Rolling Loud festival in Miami. The festival is said to be the world’s largest hip-hop festival. 

Speaking to TMZ, he was asked about his diamond. The rapper shared that his performance at Rolling Loud went from great to not so great when he decided to stage dive into the crowd and fans ripped the diamond off his forehead.

“I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped in the crowd and they kinda ripped it out.”

It was reported that the award-winning rapper’s diamond implant wasn’t full proof but luckily he did not suffer any serious facial damage. 

LIL UZI VERT’S DIAMOND

The 26-year-old rapper had the expensive diamond implanted onto his forehead earlier this year. On his Twitter page, he said that he has been paying for the diamond since 2017. 

“That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face,” he tweeted.

HOW MUCH IS $24 MILLION?

In January a fan had asked the rapper if the diamond was worth more than his cars. To everyone’s surprise, he mentioned that not even his Bugatti could pay for the diamond. 

“All my cars together, plus home, this took so long now I can get this money.” 

Lil Uzi Vert’s custom Bugatti Veyron reportedly cost him $1.5 million (R21 million).
