Lil Xan is catching heat after pulling a weapon on a man during an argument.
The 22-year-old rapper was at a 7/11 parking lot near downtown L.A. on Friday evening when he was approached by a man who confronted him on camera over his comments about Tupac. In the footage, obtained by TMZ, the man asked Xan why he “talked s**t” about the late legend. Xan made headlines after calling Pac’s music “boring” during a 2018 interview with REVOLT.
“You a bitch, homie,” said the man before Xan lashed out in response, calling him the n-word. “What the f**k you want, bruh? Get the f**k out, ni**a!”
Xan then flashed what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun as he walked to his Mercedes G-Wagon with his girlfriend, Annie Smith, who told the man, “You started it, you dumb f**k.”
Lil Xan gives 2pac a rating of 2 for "boring music." RT if you have… questions.

Xan got into the passenger’s seat of his car while brandishing the weapon. “Motherfu**er, get out!” he yelled before calling the man a “bitch.”
The man filed a report with LAPD and detectives are now investigating.
After the incident, Xan took to Instagram Stories to address what happened, saying he was only protecting himself after being provoked. “The media is gonna try and twist what just happened at a gas station,” he said. “I was about to be attacked and resorted to having to use self defense.”
“F**k all you old head ass bitches still talking bout that 2pac shit,” he added. “Live your own life and stop picking on a kid.”
