Waka Flocka Moves To Ban Rookie Artist Lil Xan From Hip-Hop

And T.I. seconds that motion.

Waka Flocka has had enough of these new rappers, and now he's making moves to get them out of the rap game altogether. Following controversial Tupac statements by up-and-coming rapper Lil Xan, Flocka took to social media to voice a move to ban the rookie artist from hip-hop.

"Lil Xan banned from hip hop," Waka Flocka wrote on Twitter on Tuesday (Mar. 6). DJ Akademiks then shared the tweet on Instagram and garnered the attention of T.I., who seemed to second the motion. "So be it," commented the Hustle Gang leader.

As previously noted, Waka's disapproval of Lil Xan has to do with comments he made about Tupac during an interview with Revolt. During the discussion, Xan stated that Pac has "boring music."

Waka Flocka combated Xan's comments, by explaining the true significance of Tupac's legacy. "Pac help me get thru childhood," he tweeted. "Shit hurt to see the youth disrespect man that paved the way for all of us literally... I hope nobody overlook me accomplishments when I leave."

This isn't the first time Waka has shared his thoughts on new artists. He's previously taken shots at Lil Pump and Smokepurpp.

Waka Flocka and T.I. won't likely get a response from Lil Xan, however. The "Betrayed" artist announced on Tuesday (Mar. 6), that he will not be doing anymore interviews in the future due to harsh backlash regarding his recent interview.

DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For Copyright Infringement

DJ Paul has filed a multi-million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit against Travis Scott for allegedly stealing his music.

According to TMZ, the Three 6 Mafia member accuses Scott of snatching a portion of the hook from his 1997 track “Tear Da Club Up,” for “No Bystanders” off the 27-year-old rapper’s Astroworld album.

Paul claims that the hooks to both songs are “virtually identical and strikingly similar,” reports The Blast. The lawsuit also notes that the songs sound so much alike that Scott changed his lyrics from to “f**k da club up,” “tear the club up” during his Grammys performance in February, without Paul's permission.

The Memphis native is asking for at least $20 million in damages. However, TMZ reported that Scott reached out to Paul sometime Tuesday (April 23) to potentially work out the legal matter.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper has faced multiple lawsuits over the last two years, including being sued for canceling a music festival performance. Last week, Scott lost a nearly $400,000 lawsuit after being sued for pulling out of a party during Super Bowl weekend. In 2017, La Flame was hit with a lawsuit brought on by a fan who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries during one of his concerts.
