He's now vowed to stop doing interviews
During an interview with Revolt TV, the rapper was asked for his opinion on the late hip-hop icon, when he dismissively shrugged and said he made “boring music”.
Xan soon started trending, when the likes of Waka Flocka Flame led a charge of criticism against his comment – calling on him to be “banned from hip hop”.
Xan then responded to the backlash, saying that he”wasn’t going anywhere”, but was going to stop speaking to the press.
“No more interviews,” he wrote. “I love my fans to death but I can’t let these companies keep taking advantage of me and using me to further there shit, it’s fucked.”

Others however, jumped to Xan’s defence – arguing that he was perfectly entitled to his opinion.
Last year saw Tupac inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, where Snoop Dogg hailed him as “the greatest rapper of all time“.
Describing the ‘human’ qualities of Shakur, Snoop spoke of 2Pac as “many different things at once. Hardheaded and intellectual, courageous and afraid, revolutionary and….oh yeah, don’t get it fucked up, gangsta.”
Other rappers to make it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include the Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and N.W.A.
