Lil Uzi Vert, who has an ace for extravagant spontaneity has continued to live up to his reputation as he says he’s in the process of purchasing a planet, potentially making him the first human to legally own a planet.
The rapper’s close friend, Grimes broke the news with a rather implied tweet. Grimes tweeted, “Apparently @LILUZIVERT owns this planet – just a heads up”, in response to a photo of a planet called WASP-127b. Discovered by NASA in 2016, the exoplanet is 1.4 times the size of Jupiter.
“I tried 2 surprise everyone,” Vert replied to her. “Still working on it.” The rapper also hashtagged Musk’s neuro-technology company Neuralink, which has been working on developing brain chip implants that connect humans to computers.
Grimes returned with the update that documentation for Vert to legally claim is “almost complete,” and while there’s no proof of the transaction as of yet, that he would be the “first human to legally own a planet.”
Grimes happens to be the girlfriend to space entrepreneur Elon Musk, a seemingly advantageous connection for Vert when it comes to his intended planetary acquisition.
Back in February, Grimes and Uzi Vert announced their plans to have Elon Musk’s Neuralink experimental chip implantation surgery together over the course of a Twitter thread.
The musicians’strange joint pledge came after Musk’s announcement regarding Neuralink. Lil Uzi tweeted “NEURALINK” in reference to Elon Musk’s plans to develop a computer interface that can be implanted in the human brain.
Responding to the rapper’s tweet, Grimes wrote: “Let’s get brain chips”, to which Lil Uzi replied: “I’m ready when we doing it?” Uzi went on to put a timeline on the plans, stating: “Let’s aim for chips by 2022. It’s experimental surgery but if it succeeds we’ll have the knowledge of the Gods haha.”Then, Uzi replied, “Okay!!! I will call you for more detail.”
Prior to these threads, Lil Uzi Vert acquired a $24 million 11 carat pink diamond from Elliot Elliante, in which he spent years deciding what he would do with it. He eventually came up with the idea to wear it on his forehead. After which, he implanted the giant pink diamond into his forehead.
But, after just four months of having his new implant, the rapper was spotted without his pretty pink diamond. Although it’s yet to be confirmed if his decision to remove the gem was health related or just willful.
