As part of an ongoing and exhaustive effort to establish himself as the most badass MC to ever walk the planet Earth, Lil Xan has ended up in hospital after doing himself some major self harm.
With a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.
The 22-year-old Redlands, California rapper took to Instagram yesterday with a video shot in a room that looks like the maid's on strike. In the clip, he shows a hospital wristband, and talks about checking himself into emergency. The reason for his visit? He got worried after vomiting up something other than his lunch.
"Yeah, I went to the hospital today," Xan relates in the clip. "Getting ready to pack for this tour. I just want to let everybody know that I was in the hospital for not due to any drugs, but I guess I ate too many hot Cheetos and it ripped something in my stomach open a little bit and I puked a little blood. So we good.”
In subsequent posts he talks about how he has never been cleaner and healthier, noting "I feel so clear-headed and I just wanna thank every one of y'all for everything you all have done, because without you guys, I would not be here."
This latest bit of badassery follows Lil Xan making headlines ealier this year for suggesting that Tupac Shakur was "boring" during a TV interview. A week or so later, he was confronted for his comments by "hostile" teenage students at a Del Taco in Redland.
Terrifed, Xan hotfooted it to a nearby YMCA where, after hiding out from the angry hordes, the "Betrayed" rapper had police escort him safely back to his car.
