2. Life Before his Musical Career
Diego Leanos is also known by his stage name as Lil Xan or Xan. He was born on September 6, 1996 in Redlands, California. He attended Redlands East Valley High School and was dropped out of high school in his freshman year. To move through his life, he took a job as a street cleaner earning eight dollars an hour. He then pursued a career in photography. After his camera got stolen he chose to begin rapping in lieu of investing in a new camera. Interestingly, he had a choice to pay $1200 for a camera or $20 for a recording session. Growing up in his hometown, he listened to variety of music especially Playboi Carti who he believes as his one of his inspirations.
3. His Addiction to Xanax
Before his career got started, he was addicted to drugs. He first tried Xanax in 2014. At first, he was cautious of taking pills, but once he saw his friends dissolving Xanax in soda, he preferred that way of taking it. He was addicted to Xanas along with opiates and other benzodiazepines but he was able to get rid of that drug after two years of addiction. In an interview with Genius, Lil Xan told:
“I was painfully addicted to Xans for like two years of my life. I was lucky enough to get off that shit”. He also added “I definitely learned that lesson after ending up in the hospital from withdrawing, I was doing Norcos, too. I was withdrawing from opiates and Benzos. It landed me in the hospital too many times. And one day, I was just like, ‘This ain’t fun, I can’t live this life.’ A lot of rappers don’t really be talking about not doing drugs. You know, it’s like the opposite way, so it’s refreshing, I think.”
Now, Lil Xan speaks out against Xanax abuse and helps people to stop using the drug.
