Lil Xan is a rapper from Redlands, California, who rose to fame overnight when his single “Betrayed” came out. In 12 hours, “Betrayed” music video gained over 1 million views, and has since accumulated over 135 million views.
Before his career as a rapper, Lil Xan had worked as a street cleaner, a drug dealer, and a concert photographer. Once when he was shooting a $teven Cannon concert, his camera was stolen. In lieu of purchasing a new camera, he decided to start rapping.
Lil Xan’s Total Xanarchy Tour turns out to be a huge success. Tickets sold out in almost all tour stops, including Boston, MA.
“Lil Xan” originated from the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. However, having seen the cause of Lil Peep’s death being an overdose of Xanax and fentanyl, Lil Xan decided to quit Xanax after two years of addiction and speak out against drug use.
Lil Xan’s album Total Xanarchy featuring YG, 2 Chainz, Charli XCX and Diplo will be released on April 6.
