Lil Xan pulled a gun on a man who approached him on Friday night in a 7-Eleven parking lot over his comments on 2Pac. After the man chastised Xan for calling Tupac "boring" and called him a "little bitch," the rapper pulled out a handgun and waved it at him while threatening him.
"What the fuck you want, bruh?" Xan yelled, dropping the n-word as he retreated to his car.
Xan continued to point the gun from the passenger seat of his car, yelling at the man while he instructed Xan to wave the gun around more for the camera and continued to taunt him.
Xan posted a response to the incident on his Instagram Story. He claimed that the media would distort what happened to make him look bad and said that he only pulled the gun in self-defense.
"I was about to be attacked and resorted to having to use self-defense," he wrote. "Fuck all you old head ass bitches still talking bout that 2Pac shit. Live your own life and stop picking on a kid."
TMZ reports that the LAPD is investigating the incident.
