Symes Woods gave birth to Lil Uzi Vert in 1994 in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ying Yang Twins, Wiz Khalifa, Marilyn Manson, Paramore, and Meek Mill were some of the musicians he first discovered through Mike Jones’ debut album.
When he was in the 10th grade and still in school, he started rapping. He and two of his friends got together to form a rap group called Steaktown. Woods did not finish high school and did not go to college.
He Had a $24 Million Diamond Put on His Head
According to a video he released on Instagram in February of last year, Lil Uzi Vert has an implanted pink diamond in his forehead that he uses as a third eye. He also said that he paid a whopping $24 million for the diamond.
Lil Uzi said that it took him four years to save up enough money to buy the 10–11-carat diamond. He said that the amount he spent on the diamond is more than the cost of all of his cars and his house put together.
To validate the diamond’s exact value, there is no official or verifiable record to use.
Property and Other Things of Value
He paid $4.4 million for a modern villa with glass walls in Bell Canyon, on the outskirts of L.A.’s large San Fernando Valley.
People started saying that his rap flow was “fast as a machine gun,” so Woods changed his name to Lil Uzi Vert. “Purple Thoughtz Vol. 1,” his first EP, came out on January 19, 2014.
After Purple Thoughtz Vol. 1 came out, ASAP Mob and producer Don Cannon paid attention to Woods. As soon as he had secured Woods, Cannon put together his debut mixtape “The Real Uzi,” which was released in 2014. Woods then signed a deal with Atlantic Records to make a record.
“Luv is Rage,” his second mixtape, came out in 2015. After this came out, HotNewHipHop called him the “breakout artist of 2015.” Then, in 2016, he put out a single called “Money Longer” on his SoundCloud.
Upon its release, the song was near the bottom of the Billboard Hot 100, but it quickly moved to the number 54 spot. It was certified twice as Platinum.
“Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World,” his third mixtape, came out in 2016. It’s also his first mixtape that will be sold to the public. With a debut in the top 37 of the Billboard 200, it was later awarded Gold certification.
“Eternal Atake,” his second studio album, came out in 2020. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and was streamed more than 400 million times in the first few months of 2020. It set a record as the album with the most streams since 2008.
Lil Uzi Vert is the stage name of American hip-hop artist Symere Basil Woods. His estimated net worth is $25 million. He is thought to be one of the rappers who makes the most money in the world.
In 2016, when his first single, “Money Longer,” came out, he became well-known. From 2017 to 2018, he did 76 live shows around the world. During the same time, he made $20 million.

Forehead Diamonds Worth $24 Million Have Been Snatched From Me by Fans
This catastrophe was averted thanks to Lil Uzi Vert’s confession that he had an artificial pink diamond placed on his forehead before his appearance at Rolling Loud.
The rapper says he had a $24 MILLION rock put in his face as a flashy implant. He says he saved up for years to buy the pink gemstone and was afraid he would lose it if he didn’t put it on his forehead.
A stage fall by Lil Uzi at the Miami hip hop festival proved that the implant wasn’t foolproof… and his fans tore it right out of his forehead.
The good news is that he was not seriously injured to his face, and he now has a barbell piercing in its stead. Oh, and the diamond is still there.
In February, Uzi sent a threatening message about the implant. He posted a picture of blood leaking around the diamond and said he might die if it wasn’t taken out properly.
He had it taken out this summer, but he got it put back in for Rolling Loud.
Since every celebrity likes boxing, our photographer told Uzi how good he was at boxing when he was training recently. Take a look at those hands!
