The rapper, whose real name is Symon Woods, showed off the highly expensive piece via his Instagram account yesterday, Feb. 4.

“Beauty is pain,” the rapper simply said on the short clip of him donning the diamond.

The “Money Longer” hit-maker, meanwhile, took to Twitter to share details about his diamond implant prior to its unveiling.

“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot (Elante) for years now. This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond,” he tweeted on Jan. 31.

After being asked if the diamond is worth more than his cars, the rapper said, “Yes my Bugatti can’t even pay for it … all my cars together, plus home… this took so long now I can get this money.”

When one fan commented that a carat could have cost around $2 million each, the rapper stated that his diamond is “10 almost 11 carats.”

His new body modification stirred some mixed reactions on the internet, however, as several memes have come up about the rapper as he is being compared to the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero Vision, who dons an infinity stone on his forehead.

“[This] is how ima pull up on lil uzi when he gets that diamond on his forehead,” Twitter user @woahgio_ posted, sharing a screenshot of Thanos ripping Vision’s infinity stone in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Amid all the jokes, the rapper simply stressed earlier today, Feb. 5, that “THIS IS FASHION.”

Lil Uzi Vert recently revealed that he was working on new music with Canadian musician Grimes, who is also the partner of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.  /ra
