Lil Xan’s alleged attempt to stunt in the public eye may have blown up in his face.
After the rapper recently snapped a photo for his Instagram Stories tagging noted watch designer Richard Mille and the figure “700K,” popular watchdog blog, Fake Watch Buster, promptly called out Lil Xan and his watches, calling them fake.
“@xanxiety in our opinion your wearing two fake Richard Mille,” the account captioned the photo. “The RM035-01 Rafa Nadal looks fake as well. A genuine RM11-03 Carbon NTPT worth approx 560K+ USD. A genuine RM035-01 worth approx 500k+ USD.”

Richard Mille watches are a common purchase in Hip Hop as a signifier of wealth. According to a 2017 article by A Blog To Watch, the popular watches start with a price tag of $80,000 and can escalate to a few million dollars.
Current Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden purchased one for Lil Baby as a birthday gift in 2020, while Migos’ rapper Offset and Cardi B gifted their daughter Kulture a $250,000 Richard Mille watch for her third birthday.
Lil Xan may not be the only rapper who has been duped by a fake watch in recent months. In September, the Fake Watch Buster account was quick to call out Lil Baby after he allegedly purchased a fraudulent Patek Phillipe watch for $400,000.
The My Turn rapper proceeded to blast the jeweler who sold him the watch, eventually getting a public apology from the jeweler and free bling as a form of restitution.
