After Mac Miller’s autopsy report revealed that the rapper died from a combination from a deadly combination of fentanyl and cocaine, Lil Xan has come forward detailing the adverse and life threatening effects of fentanyl usage. In a recent interview with TMZ, the California native revealed that he used to sell the opioid along with Xanax, but once he saw the side-effects of the lethal drug he stopped dealing it.
“Unfortunately, I was selling Xanax before I was a rapper. The minute it got to fentanyl, I was like, ‘I’m not gonna sell this.’ My friends were taking it, and they were puking. I was like ‘I can’t … I’m out the game,” he said.
“It’s always fentanyl,” he continued. “Like with Peep. Rest in peace to Peep. It’s always f**kin’ Xanax but with fentanyl in it. Or it’s like Roxys, like the Oxycontin with fentanyl. Now they’re putting fentanyl in cocaine. Imagine snorting fentanyl.”

During the interview, Lil Xan also said he’s attempting to get clean but is still using Norco. He also revealed he is secluding himself in a forest in order to try to stay sober.
For the 22-year-old rapper, Mac Miller was like a hero to him. He recalls that the last thing Miller said to him during a performance in Los Angeles was to “be safe.” Now, Xan is reportedly naming his new project after the short phrase in efforts to commemorate Mac’s life, Billboard reports.
