Normally, it is the norm for celebrities to get involved with hard drugs because they believe it enhances performance and helps them to last longer on stage, but this belief and assumption is refuted by a young Mexican rapper born as Diego Leanos and given the stage name Lil Xan.
The young rapper was addicted to hard drugs, including Xanax, opiates, and other benzodiazepines. His stage name Lil Xan was actually derived from the drug Xanax. He performed under the influence of drugs for two years, just before he decided to stop using drugs and actually started a campaign against them.
Lil Xan made the decision to get clean after his ugly experience with the drug Xanax, but his campaign against drugs intensified after he lost a dear friend to hard drugs. His campaign was titled Xanarchy, which means a total rejection of Xanax.
Fortunately, his anti-drug campaign helped many of his fans to stop using drugs and start a new chapter. In order to show his support to his fans and to back up his anti-drug message, Lil Xan announced in 2018 that he would change his stage name to “Diego”, but later he broke that promise because he was unsure about it.
Lil Xan Bio, Age
Lil Xan, whose first name is Diego Leanos, was born on September 6, 1996, in Redlands California, where he attended Redlands East Valley High School. He was raised by his mother Candy, but the identity of Li Xan’s father is not known. He is currently 21 years old and is one of the rising rappers in the American music industry.
His childhood experiences were not rosy because his family was poor and had to live in cheap motels most of his life. Unfortunately, the young rapper had to drop out of school due to hardship in his early years and spend fruitless years at home as an unemployed teenager. He had to take a paid job that ranged from street cleaning to drug street transport, and he also tried to pursue a career as a photographer.
He could not get far in his quest for a career as a photographer, because shortly after he picked up his camera, it was stolen from him. He started rapping to save enough money to invest in a new camera, but ironically he discovered that his talent is actually in rapping.
Li Xan used platforms like SoundCloud and YouTube to gain popularity, but in August 2017 his popularity reached a new peak after the music video for his song Betrayed was released, which peaked at number 64 on the Billboard Hot 100. In an interview with XXL, he announced his first album Total Xanarchy. The album featured artists like Diplo and Swae Lee.
