But firstly, let's take things back a few years...

Lil Xan, who was born as Nicholas Diego Leanos, was born in California...

And the twenty-three-year-old has made quite a name for himself on the rap scene over the years.

Rapping wasn't originally on his agenda, however...

Even though he dropped out of school in his freshman year and he resorted to selling drugs on the streets, he spent some time trying to pursue a career as a photographer.

But when his camera was stolen...

He began rapping a lot more to try and save money to buy a new camera... which, obviously, didn't pan out.

He began to gain recognition on platforms such as YouTube and Sound Cloud...

His popularity then grew after the release of the music video for his song Betrayed in August 2017.

In 2018, Lil Xan released his debut studio album, "Total Xanarchy", in 2018...

Despite the album receiving generally negative reviews, it was a moderate commercial success, debuting at number ten on the Billboard 200. Not too bad, we'd say!

Alongside his career as a rapper...

Lil Xan is also known for his turbulent personal life.

His very public relationship and break-up with Noah Cyrus made a lot of headlines...

And the drama seemed to be non-stop between the pair, with both Lil Xan and Noah publically accusing one another of being unfaithful.

The rapper has also been open about his drug addictions...

He was heavily addicted to Xanax, which is where his rap name came from, but he is now clean of his addictions and regularly speaks out against Xanax abuse and urges people to not use the drug at all.

In December 2018, he admitted himself into rehab following the death of his friend, Mac Miller...

And after just 2 weeks in the facility, he confirmed he was sober.

He now claims to be happier than ever now he is sober...

But over the weekend, things took a dark turn for the young rapper.

Reports have come in that Lil Xan was rushed into a local hospital in California over the weekend.

The rapper told local media that he was rushed from his mother’s home in California to the hospital via an ambulance. Though he does not remember much of the attack, he said it was triggered by the stress and anxiety of the global pandemic.

He recently opened up about his struggle with mental health during these difficult times...

"This virus is probably the most lonely thing lol how are you guys coping with it?" he wrote on a recent post.

It hasn't yet been confirmed if the rapper has been discharged from the hospital...

But we send him all of our best wishes during this difficult time.
