How Lil Xan Achieved a Net Worth of $3 Million

Lil Xan is an American rapper who has achieved fame and fortune early in his career. At the beginning of 2019, his net worth is estimated at $3 million. This isn’t bad for being the age of 22. How did he become a multimillionaire at such a young age? Was it all earned from his career as a rap star? We looked into his story and this is what we learned”

His early years

Before he became a famous rapper, Lil Xan was born with the name Diego Leanos. He was born on September 6, 1996 and is a native of Redlands, California. This is the city where he attended the East Valley High School. Diego didn’t make it to graduation though. In his freshman year, he dropped out. He was having a rough time with a drug addiction. It began when he tried Xanax for the first time in 2014. He was addicted for a few years until he kicked the habit. This was before he entered the rap industry.

His career

Diego was fond of the music of Playboi Carti and his own music was inspired by the artist. In 2016, under the name of Lil Xan, he started sharing his music on the social media outlet SoundCloud. Not that many rappers have made a name for themselves as easily as Lil Xan through this media channel. His very first mixtape was released in September of 2016 titled CITGO. One of the singles on that mixtape was streamed more than 4.84 million times through the SoundCloud platform. “Who are You” was the top song from the collection. His debut EP as released in 2017 called “Toothache.” The song “Betrayed” from his first EP was a big hit that received more than 70 million views on the popular social media channel YouTube and it was also played on SoundCloud more than 27 million times.

Lil Xan’s collaborations

Lil Xan became immensely popular as a solo artist and this opened the doors for invitations to work with other artists on a variety of projects. He worked with Steve Cannon on the Trap Lullaby mixtape from 2016 through 2017. He was also a featured artist on “Single” by Nick Colletti. In addition to these, he also collaborated with Julian Dova, Lucki, Lil Wop and XXXTentacion.

How he came to have his stage name

It was actually his addiction to Xanax that gave him the inspiration for his stage name Lil Xan. Xan is the shortening of the drug Xanax. He was one of the fortunate ones who kicked the habit after just two years to go forward and make a success of his life. He shared that he had learned some valuable life lessons. Xanax was just one of the drugs that he was taking before he turned his life around. He was also doing Norcos and Benzos and he ended up in the hospital on several occasions when he was suffering from withdrawals from drugs.

A story of rising from the ashes

A high school dropout with an addiction to drugs doesn’t seem like a likely candidate for turning his life around and becoming a multimillionaire within a few short years, but that is exactly what Lil Xan did. At the young age of just 22 he has his entire life ahead of him and because of his wisdom in kicking the drug habit and focusing on a positive aspect of his life, which was the music, he’s achieved a solid financial backdrop and is living a clean and healthy lifestyle. He’s learned a lot and he’s applying his knowledge to positive pursuits.

How did Lil Xan get so rich?

The music that he published on SoundCloud has made it to the Billboard Hot 100 charts and his single “Betrayed” has reached the number 67 position on the charts. He’s only been involved in the mainstream rap music industry for a year and he’s already made $3 million through his music career. This is truly just the beginning for him. It is our sincere belief that the wise and talented young rapper will take his career much further and $3 million in net worth is just a starting place for him.
