About three weeks ago, Lil Xan sat down for a lighthearted interview with Revolt where he ranked a list of people, items, and songs from 1-9 based on "clout" for their appropriately-titled "On Clout 9" segment.
In the midst of ranking everything from net neutrality (which got a 1 because "I don't even know what that is") to face tats (8, dinged a point because "too many people are getting them") to Beethoven (9, "he made beautiful music"), the rapper was asked to rate 2Pac. The late icon merited a 2, and Xan called Pac's music "boring." You can see for yourself at the 1:45 mark, below.
After criticism from that sit-down and an occasionally contentious—but ultimately fine—interview at Hot 97, Xan announced he was done with interviews because he didn't want "these companies" to use him to "further there shit [sic]."

But Xan's retirement from interviews apparently didn't come quickly enough for Waka Flocka. On Tuesday night, Waka tweeted that Xan was "banned from hip hop" for his Pac slander. "Pac help[ed] me get through childhood!" he explained.
