(AllHipHop Rumors) XXXTentacion recently sat down with DJ Akademiks for a Twitch conversation.
The rapper is highly outspoken and honestly places himself in a lot of these positions.
While he offered some good opinions in the discussion, he also offered some opinions on things he may need further education on.
Some of the good things he spoke on was his work as a sound engineer at 15 and how he understands frequency. He also spoke about having to dumb down his music if another artist has a hot song that's dumbed down.
Some of the wilder comments came from him discussing Biggie and Tupac.
He says he blames the Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur for making all the kids want to pick up guns.
He says he blames them for glamorizing guns and violence.
That opinion was wild because there was an entire Gangsta Rap period before Tupac and Biggie emerged.
He spoke none of that period whatsoever.
To blame Biggie and Tupac for gun violence in the community is absurd.
The second wild statement came when XXXTentacion stated that he was a better rapper than Tupac.
"Bro I'm better than Tupac. Please don't compare me to him," said Tentacion. "Tupac can't make rock music," he continued.
Most of the conversation between DJ Akademiks and XXXTentacion was antediluvian. I honestly don't know if these guys are being ridiculous or serious. Who really knows?
What are your thoughts on XXX's statement?
Do you think XXXTentacion is a better Rapper than Tupac?
