West coast rapper Kurupt put Adam22 on blast for comparing XXXtentacion to Tupac.
"How you gon' say cuz is like Pac, you ain't even know [Tupac]," said Kurupt.
"F*ck all of that, cuz. You don't even know cuz. Don't say somebody is like somebody you don't know. You ain't been around cuz," Kurupt said before joking adding, "See how people get emotional about that sh*t."
In 2019, Lil Pump also compared the two rappers. "Deadass though, X is the Tupac of our generation, no cap," he said in a video clip.
The year prior, XXX slammed fans for comparing him to Pac. "I'm better than Tupac," XXXTentacion said on Instagram Live. "Please don't compare me to him."
