The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating an incident at a downtown 7/11 when a rapper pulled a gun — all of it caught on video.
“Lil Xan whipped out a handgun and pointed it at a man who demanded to know why the rapper once called Tupac “boring” … and now LAPD is investigating,” TMZ reported.
The incident allegedly began with a difference of opinion as to the excitement of listening to the music of legendary rapper and civil rights activist Tupac Shakur.
“TMZ obtained this video of the altercation which went down shortly before 10 PM Friday in a 7/11 parking lot near downtown L.A. The person shooting the video says he asked Xan why he ‘talked sh*t’ about Tupac last year in an interview,” the site noted.
Xan used the N-word in his outburst.
“What the f*ck you want, bruh?? Get the f*ck out, n***a!” he shouted.
The rapper is best known for the 2017 song “Betrayed,” which reached number 64 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Xan, for his part, lashed out at fans of Tupac in a statement.
“F*ck all you old head ass b*tches still talking bout that 2pac shit,” Xan said.
US senator calls for investigation into FaceApp over security concerns
Popular Russia-based application FaceApp, which allows users to change their appearance to look older or younger, came under fire in the United States Wednesday, with one senator urging an FBI investigation.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for the FBI and the FTC, the US consumer protection body, to "look into the national security & privacy risks" connected to FaceApp, which is used by millions of Americans but was developed by a Saint Petersburg-based company.
"FaceApp's location in Russia raises questions regarding how and when the company provides access to the data of U.S. citizens to third parties, including potentially foreign governments," the New York senator said in a letter to the FBI.
First US murder conviction overturned using DNA, family tree evidence
An American man was exonerated Wednesday for a decades-old murder he did not commit, using evidence based on DNA and a genetic family tree, the first such result using a revolutionary investigative technique.
Christopher Tapp, 43, had served 20 of his 30-year sentence for the 1996 rape and murder of Angie Dodge.
On Wednesday, a court in the state of Idaho completely overturned his conviction based on evidence found with "genetic genealogy" -- the technique used to identify the suspected "Golden State Killer" by making DNA matches with his distant relatives.
Buzz Aldrin has landed — for the Apollo 11 anniversary
The suspense had been building for 24 hours: would Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, show up Wednesday night in Huntsville, Alabama -- nicknamed "Rocket City" for the nearby NASA space flight center?
Public appearances by the former astronaut, now 89, are rare. On Tuesday, he left his former Apollo 11 crewmate Michael Collins in the lurch.
Aldrin declined to join him at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where the two were supposed to appear together on NASA TV to mark the 50th anniversary of their mission (Neil Armstrong died in 2012).
