Lil Xan fired a shockwave through the Hip Hop community recently†when he called 2Pacís music ďboringĒ during an interview with REVOLT. Xanís comments even caused Waka Flocka Flame to call for him to be ďbanned from Hip Hop.Ē
A number stars have since taken to social media to respond to Xanís comments, including Trippie Redd and actor Michael Rapaport.
Redd, a close friend Lil Xan, hit Instagram to defend the 21-year-oldís comments.
ďI personally think yíall need to get f Lil Xanís dick,Ē he said. ďThatís my lil dawg. And I love 2Pac. That was my dead brotherís favorite artist. Bro, do you see who he is? Of course he donít like 2Pac Ö He donít necessarily gotta like 2Pac to be Hip Hop, nigga. If he think that shit boring, he think that shit boring. That shit is not a part this new era anyway.Ē
Michael Rapaport ó who directed the 2011 documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels a Tribe Called Quest ó also responded to Xanís comments, albeit with a slightly different perspective.
ďSome wack-ass, non-rapping rapper named Lil Xan, Lil Xanax ó some pill-popping muthafucking face-tattooed cornball, no skill, no talent muthafucka said that 2Pacís music wasnít interesting,Ē Rapaport said in a video uploaded to Instagram. ďLittle buck tooth rabbit face-looking muthafucka. You need to apologize, all right? And you donít need to apologize to 2Pac or 2Pacís fans. You need to apologize to whoever the fuck raised you, or who didn’t raise you, for raising you to be a dumb fuck. Little funny-faced Tom and Jerry-looking ass muthafucka. You donít get to speak on anything that has to do with Hip Hop or rap music.Ē
A number other Hip Hop stars and personalities have taken to social media to share their own views on Lil Xanís comments.
