Los Angeles, CA – The LAPD is reportedly investigating an incident involving Lil Xan, a handgun and Tupac Shakur. TMZ reports a confrontation took place at a 7-11 in downtown Los Angeles on Friday (June 7) after a man asked why Xan once called the late Hip Hop legend “boring.”
Unfortunately for the 22-year-old rapper, the man caught it all on video.
In the clip, Xan and fiancée Annie Smith are putting gas in their black Mercedes G-Wagon when a man starts calling him a “bitch.” Xan — who is clearly threatened — pulls out a weapon and aims it at the man, shouting, “Get away!”
The man then shouts, “Look at Lil Xan pulling out a gun right now!”
The couple drove away without further incident, but the man filed a police report.
Xan quickly took to his Instagram Stories in an attempt to do some damage control. He explained he only pulled out the gun in self-defense.
“The media is gonna try and twist what just happened at a gas station,” he wrote. “I was about to be attacked and resorted to having to use self defense. fuck all you old head ass bitches still talking bout that 2pac shit. live your own life and stop picking on a kid.”
Xan made the comment about ‘Pac during an interview with REVOLT in February 2018. Revisit the video below.
