After remaining unemployed for a number of years, he earned money by cleaning streets, pedaling drugs etc. He tried to make a career in photography but after his camera was stolen, he turned to rapping. He released his songs on social platforms, such as ‘SoundCloud’ and ‘YouTube’ and soon earned a decent fan following. His track ‘Betrayed’ became a huge success and he rose to prominence. He was addicted to the prescription drug ‘Xanax’ for two years, and interestingly took on his professional name ‘Lil Xan’ (derived from the drug name) during that period.
