Lil Xan recently caught a ton of flack when he called 2Pac's music "boring," with both Pac fans and rappers alike going out of their way to criticize him. Waka Flocka Flame was one of the notable figures to call him out, tweeting, "Lil Xan banned from hip hop. Shit hurt to see the youth disrespect man that paved the way for all of us literally." Ever since, Xan has been eager to insist that Pac actually is a legend despite his previous comments.
"But for real, I gotta say something," he told fans at a recent meet-and-greet. "The media twisted my words: I think 2Pac is a legend. 2Pac is definitely a legend. That's what's up. 2Pac a legend, they just twist your words and they want you to hate me. Positivity over everything."
Now, it seems that he's paying tribute to the rapper at his shows.
At a recent show in Cali, Xan showed 2Pac some love by performing "California Love."
Just recently, Xan wiped his Instagram account. He started sharing photos again when he posted the tracklist for his upcoming debut album, Total Xanarchy, which is set to feature appearances from 2 Chainz, Rae Sremmurd, and Charli XCX, among other guests.
Total Xanarchy is due to release April 6.
