St. Louis, MO – Lil Xan had to cancel a planned concert at The Pageant in St. Louis due to a man’s threats of violence. Now, police are reportedly investigating the matter.
TMZ reports a criminal investigation is underway with police looking into VladHQ, a rapper from the St. Louis area who made the threats. Vlad posted clips of himself firing shots with a rifle while antagonizing Xan.
“I want my smoke tomorrow October 10 at The Pageant,” he said in the video.
Since then, Vlad has released a Xan diss track. The song references the concert cancellation.

At this point, Lil Xan’s behavior requires its own category. From “overdosing” on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to dropping the N-word during a mall food court outburst, the 22-year-old consistently puts himself in precarious situations.
But this time, it’s not Xan’s latest Xannanigans that are making headlines. After a gun-wielding man posted a video threatening the Redlands-bred rapper’s life, Xan’s St. Louis concert, which was scheduled for Wednesday (October 10), was canceled.
In a clip obtained by TMZ, the man shouts, “Hey Lil Xan, I want my smoke tomorrow October 10 at The Pageant, you little bitch. Where the fuck you at?” as he fires bullets at a lake.
The night the show was supposed to happen, the same person — who is allegedly a St. Louis producer — posted a photo of himself holding multiple AK-47s. The caption read, “hi Lil Xan see ya later at your show.”
The man is apparently fuming after Xan failed to pay him for some work.
The St. Louis police aren’t actively investigating the threat but Xan’s reps assure his fans the “old situation” has been handled.
“It is our top priority, including the promoters and venue to ensure safety at every show,” they told TMZ. “This was an old situation that has been taken care of internally. There is no reason to fear safety at any of Lil Xan’s shows moving forward.”
