Ten months ago when he dropped “Slingshot,” Diego Leanos (also known as Lil Xan) would have never dreamed this up. To be on a major record label, tour the country and have a debut album is all a dream he never expected to happen so fast. After the success of his smash hit “Betrayed,” his career has completely skyrocketed and he’s had the privilege of working with and meeting some of today’s hottest artists.
After touring the U.S. on his sold-out Total Xanarchy Tour alongside $teven Cannon, Xan is now focused on pushing his new album to the world.
Total Xanarchy is a 16-track opus that showcases Diego’s signature playful flow with Bobby Johnson on the beat, as well as more out-of-the-box records produced by the Ear Drummas DJ Fu. The duo of Rae Sremmurd show up on catchy “Shine Hard,” Ronny J provides thumping production on “Tick Tock” with 2 Chainz and YG calls out outsiders on “Round Here.” DiploCharli XCX also show up on more commercial-sounding tracks that could potentially be festival favorites.
It has been quite the journey for Xan and it has all culminated to this point in his life in Total Xanarchy, with plenty more on the way. He will follow-up this project with a mixtape this summer titled Heartbreak Soldier, so stay tuned for that.
