No more M’s in his face

Lil Uzi Vert appears to have taken out his infamous diamond implant. 

The rapper got a $24 million natural pink diamond inserted onto his forehead this past February. At the time, Uzi tweeted that he had been saving up for the 11 carat diamond for four years so he could have “a lot of M's in (his) face”.

Later, the rapper took to IGTV to explain his decision. He said that initially he wanted to get the diamond in a ring, but changed his mind. “I’m Lil Uzi. I’m turnt up,” he said. “So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there… I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries.”

Previously having dermal piercings on his face, he wanted the implant in a different place, but was advised against it because of the size. “Don’t think it was just a ‘come on, let’s go get his money,’“ he explained. “No, bro, they argued me down. It’s almost insane to the average person, or to any person.”

Nevertheless, fans have been quick to point out the stone’s absence after Uzi’s girlfriend, City Girls star JT, posted a series of photos and videos of the rapper onto her Instagram Stories. While it remains unclear what has happened to the diamond, rumours about its removal have been circling since the musician's Calvin Klein campaign in April.
