SMH: This Rapper Just Got Banned From Hip-Hop After His Comment On Tupac

And now the internet is going blow for blow over it...

Published March 7, 2018

There aren’t too many ways to earn a lifetime ban from hip-hop, but Lil Xan, SoundCloud rapper and former prescription drug addict (the inspiration behind his rap moniker), managed to figure out one of them by taking a shot at West Coast hip-hop legend and worldwide rap icon, Tupac.

In a Revolt TV interview, Xan was tasked with rating rappers according to his taste. When Pac’s name popped up, the 21-year-old ranked him with a measly two. Why, might you ask? Because of his “boring music.”

His lack of respect for one of hip-hop’s most groundbreaking and revolutionary rap icons brought Atlanta rap star Waka Flocka out of the cut, who slammed the official ban on Xan. T.I., an avid super fan of Pac’s and Waka’s fellow ATLien, seconded his sentiments.

But the internet is having a hard time picking sides on this one.

  1. Lil Xan considers Pac's music 'boring,' thus rating him a two on the rap scale...
  2. Following the guaranteed backlash over his ranking, the California-native said he was doing away with interview and opinions for good
  3. But, it was too late. Waka had already put the APB out for a Lil Xan hip-hop ban, which at least 42,000 people (and counting) agreed with
  4. Those who aren't siding with Waka, however, are shooting the fair one with Xan's critics...
