Childhood and Adolescence
Symere Woods, better known as Lil Uzi Vert, was born in 1994 in North Philadelphia. His first album purchase was Mike Jones’, and he quickly expanded his musical horizons to include the likes of the Ying Yang Twins, Wiz Khalifa, Marilyn Manson, Paramore, and Meek Mil.
In the tenth grade, while trying to focus on his schoolwork, he began writing and performing raps. Together with his two best friends, he formed the rap trio Steaktown. Woods was unable to finish his education and hence left high school early.
A diamond worth $24 million was surgically placed into his forehead.
In a video uploaded on Instagram in February 2021, Lil Uzi Vert flaunted a pink diamond inserted in his forehead, making it appear as though he had a sparkling third eye. He went on to say that he paid a staggering $24 million for the diamond.
A diamond weighing 10-11 carats was reportedly purchased after four years of saving by rapper Lil Uzi. He admitted that he spent more money on the diamond than on his entire collection of cars and his house put together.
No official or verified record exists to validate the diamond’s real worth.
