It's been one year since XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Florida, and Lil Pump honored the rapper on the anniversary of his death.

The "Gucci Gang" rapper posted a video on Tuesday (June 18) crying while listening to X's "Revenge." In a follow-up clip, Pump boldly compared the slain rapper to Tupac Shakur. "Deadass though, X is the Tupac of our generation," he said. "No cap."

A few months before his death, X sat down with DJ Akademiks, who also compared the duo. "I'm better than Tupac," X responded, noting that Pac couldn't make rock music. "Please don't compare me to him."
