As many of you know I’ve been inactive from all social media for the past couple months. About 2 months ago I suffered from multiple seizures. This was my second time in the last year I’ve been hospitalized for having seizures. I decided it was best for me, my friend’s, family and supporters that I quit all prescriptions pills. The doctor’s wanted me to wean off the pills but I went cold turkey and although it has been the toughest time in my life I’m happy to say that I’ve been sober from all prescription pills since the scare. This is the first time in along time that I have felt alive. I’ll will continue my journey towards becoming a better me. I want to be an example for everyone that it’s never too late to get your life back on track and you are not alone on this journey. Thank god for giving me a 2nd chance at life. I have love for everyone and to all my supporters I won’t let you down! I’m working on the best music of my life and can’t wait to share with you all the things I have in store for the future. Xanarchy 4 Life ❤️💔🖤

High-Key Details

After innocent Black man George Floyd had his life taken from him by Minnesota cops, Xan took to social media to speak out against racism.

“Racism is evil. I fully support the protesters and every person out there fighting for justice. Black lives matter. It breaks my heart to see innocent people being killed and discriminated against because of the color of their skin. What happened to George Floyd, Brionna Taylor, Ahmed Arbery, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Trayvon and many more is evil and justice has not been served! Xanarchy wouldn’t even exist without the music and culture that black people created. Music has taken me across the globe and I’m lucky to have been able connect with heartbreak soldiers of every race. I love you all and I hope you are all staying safe and doing what you can to support this movement. Even though I will never experience what my brothers and sisters of color experience, I’m here for you and promise to use my platform to help raise awareness not just for now but for the future too. and I apologize for my delayed silence, I was hospitalized with a seizure 10 days ago. I plan to keep educating myself, donating and spreading awareness. If you’re looking for ways to support check out these awesome groups that are fighting for the cause.

Before You Go

Xan had been feeling the pressures of coronavirus. Amid the stay-at-home lockdown orders he had been suffering from a great deal of anxiety but several weekends ago became overwhelming. According to reports, Lil Xan was hospitalized after having both hallucinations and a panic attack. Xan’s mom ultimately called an ambulance to come save her son’s life.

He was rushed to the hospital by ambulance Sunday while at his mom’s house in, of all places, Corona, CA. He’s been quarantining there with her, and she’s the one who called 9-1-1 after seeing Xan hallucinating so badly it was freaking her out. Xan says doctors told him he’d suffered a panic attack, but he doesn’t remember much of the episode. As for what might’ve triggered it … he says he feels it was caused by anxiety he’s been feeling while cooped up inside. He says he’s been in and out of hospitals over anxiety issues for years, but this is the first time it’s happened since the coronavirus pandemic hit … and it was the worst one. (TMZ)
