In XXXtentacion’s honor, Thouxanbanfauni and Yachty Squash Beef and Release “Reunion”

Rap beef rarely ends on a positive note, but Thouxanbanfauni and Lil Yachty found a way and the story is quite interesting too!

In 2017, Thouxanbanfauni was involved in a well-documented beef with Lil Yachty over a misunderstanding that led to some fists being thrown, harsh words being exchanged, and overall rap beef ugliness.

When X was killed, a year ago this week, Fauni’s manager Ben called to console him as they were close and he shared some wisdom, “You never know when blood could spill, so make sure you don’t have bad blood with anyone!”

Fauni immediately took this to heart and reached out to Playboi Carti and Lil Yachty who both responded quickly and he hopped on a facetime call with them both.

Shortly after Yachty tweeted “Just talked to @Thouxanbanfauni and it’s all of love. A lot of brotherly love.”

Fauni and Yachty squashed their beef in X’s honor – the result, so far, is this outrageous promo video and their collab track dropping at midnight tonight!

The snippet video made by @jstulll quickly became an internet sensation and it already has a 150k views on Fauni’s socials, 1.7 mil views on Yachty’s socials, and 101k views on No Jumper’s IG.

About Thouxanbanfauni: Thouxanbanfauni was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee but moved to Atlanta for high school where he became involved in the same hip-hop scene that birthed many of today’s stars. His single “Who You Testin?” became a hit on Soundcloud helping bring him to the current spotlight. After that, he dropped his first solo mixtape Heavy Weight Champ that established him as a creative force to be reckoned with. Fauni is a pioneer in breaking the barrier between underground hip-hop and the mainstream. He was a top contender for the 2017 XXL Freshman list and has been the talk of many blogs and forums for the last few years. He has been impressively growing his fan base without the support of a major label.

Thouxanbanfauni is the ideal mix of veteran Soundcloud rapper and new wave Atlanta rap star. Fauni is absolutely a Soundcloud OG with songs like “Rihanna’s Wrist” that have over a million views, but he also came to be in the same Atlanta scene as Migos and UnoTheActivist. Thouxan’s music bridges the underground with the mainstream, and as a result and the sound he creates is always ahead of the curve.

Keep an eye out for the track that drops at midnight tonight!
