Lil Uzi Vert recently revealed that his insurance company believed he was trying to kill himself when he had his $ 24 million pink diamond implanted in his forehead earlier this year.
During an appearance on Twitch streamer Trainwreck’s scuffed podcast Last Friday (December 10), the Philadelphia rapper detailed his experience with the expensive trinket, which was nearly snatched from his forehead during his performance at the 2021 Rolling Loud Miami Festival in July.
“It’s actually the posterior of it,” Uzi said, rubbing between his eyebrows where the diamond was implanted, which is now replaced with a regular piercing. “I could sit him here. When I was… It was pretty heavy, it was like tearing my forehead and I had to let it heal.

“I really had to pull myself together,” he recalls. “My insurance tried to cut me off, they said, ‘This kid is trying to kill himself.'”
“Because we knew it was a piercing, my assurance was, ‘This kid just implanted this diamond in his head, and he’s going to die,'” he continued. “They’re retarded … I really had to call the piercer and quietly show them everything I had a piercing. It’s literally a piercing. But it’s okay.”
Elsewhere during the podcast, Lil Uzi Vert explained the origin of his rap nickname. Initially, the Philly rhymer said someone told him he reminded him of “a little machine gun” because he spits out his rhymes so fast. However, during his conversation with the streamers, Uzi revealed that “a crackhead” gave him his rap name.
When asked if the person who gave him the name was because he was hitting fast, Uzi responded with a smile, “Yeah, he’s a good guy.”
It’s good to know.
