Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert is okay. The hip-hop star has revealed that he’s doing alright despite having his $24 million pink diamond implant ripped out of his head.
Lil Uzi Vert Reveals What Happened To His Diamond
Uzi says while crowd surfing at Rolling Loud, fans ripped the diamond from his forehead. He didn’t suffer any injuries however, and still has the extremely valuable gemstone. That would be a pretty bad financial loss, so the Eternal Atake star is doing pretty good considering what could’ve happened.
“I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out. I’m feeling good. I still have the diamond so I feel good.”
Lil Uzi Vert Gives Much-Needed Update On The Pink Tape
LUV stays giving fans much-needed updates, whether it’s about his diamond or new music. He’s spoken up about the latter though, and specifically the status of upcoming EP The Pink Tape.
Uzi says that the album is on it’s way, but will need more time for mixing. He hyped up his last Eternal Atake project success but noted how experimental it was, dishing out on his music process a little more than usual.
“Well, it’s going through its mixing process right now. Because last time I dropped an album, it did really well. It was actually my highest-selling album, but it was experimental on the mixing part, not the actual music, so this time I went experimental with the music and traditional on the mixing.”
