The rapper reassured fans his health scare wasn’t drug-related
Lil Xan has revealed that his recent hospitalisation was due to eating “too many hot Cheetos”.
Yesterday (September 24), the rapper concerned fans by posting an image of himself in the back of an ambulance. Later, he streamed a message to his followers via Instagram Live – explaining that his hospital visit wasn’t a result of drugs.
“Ya, I went to the hospital today,” Xan confirmed during the broadcast, as he was seen preparing for his tour. “I just want to let everybody know that I was in the hospital, not due to any drugs, but I guess I ate too many hot Cheetos and it ripped [laughs] something in my stomach open a little bit and I puked a little blood. So we good.”
In the post’s caption, Xan said that he’s “healthier than I’ve ever been” ahead of his upcoming live shows. “Also be careful,” he added. “Hot Cheetos are one hell of a drug aha !”
Earlier this month, Lil Xan spoke about his last encounter with Mac Miller – and how his death made him consider “retiring after this contract”.
“The Mac shit is crazy,” he said. “I’ve been crying in my apartment, Mac didn’t die, Mac didn’t overdose.”
He added: “When your hero dies, fuck that shit, I don’t want to make music no more.”
However, the rapper confirmed last week that he has two new tracks on the way.
Lil Xan released his debut album ‘Total Xanarchy’ back in April. In a two-star review, NME said of the LP: “Stretched to a full album’s worth of material, Xan’s music, like a certain branded prescription drug, quickly tires those with little tolerance.”
