It is usually the norm for celebrities to get involved in hard drugs because according to them, it enhances performance and helps them to last longer on stage, but this belief and assumption is debunked by a young Mexican rapper who was born Diego Leanos and goes by the stage name Lil Xan.
The young rapper was addicted to hard drugs which included Xanax, Opiates and other Benzodiazepines. His stage name Lil Xan actually originated from the drug Xanax. He performed under the influence of drugs for two years just before he decided to quit drugs and actually started a campaign against it.
Lil Xan made the decision to get clean after his ugly experience with the drug Xanax but his campaign against drugs was intensified after he lost a dear friend to hard drugs. His campaign was captioned Xanarchy which means a total rejection of Xanax.
Fortunately, his anti-drug campaign helped a lot of his fans to quit drugs and turn a new leaf. To show his support to his fans and in order to support his anti-drug message, in 2018, Lil Xan announced that he would change his stage name to “Diego” but he later reneged on this promise because according to him he was not sure about it.

His childhood experiences were not rosy because his family was poor and they had to live in Cheap motels most of his life.
