Earlier this month, gun violence was threatened towards Lil Xan hours before he was set to perform in St. Louis, Missouri. A local rapper-producer named VladHQ jumped on social media to post a video where he let his dual-Kalashnikovs do most of the talking. The SLPD is launching a criminal investigation into the matter, and yes: He could be arrested if it turns out he's a tangible threat to public safety.

As previously reported, Lil Xan was booked to perform The Pageant on October 10th, when VladHQ issued the following warning to Xan, prompting an immediate cancelation from the promoters, well before the incident became the subject of a criminal investigation.TMZ has learned that VladHQ's dispute with Lil Xan may stem from an unpaid debt.

"Lil Xan said he wants a fade with me," Vlad captioned in the post contained the AK47 demo. "I'M COMING TO YO OWN SHOW TO SMACK TF OUT OF YOU TOMORROW OCT 10 AT @thepageantstl."

Lil Xan's self-destructive finish to the year coincides with a series publicly humiliating moments, including a breakup, an issue with his esophagus, and now this, the loss of his boarding pass to the state of Missouri. I don't know whether to envy or pity his lot in life.
