"The name works. Why would I change the name when it's working? The formula is doing great."

That's what Lil Xan said in an interview shortly before the death of Lil Peep, who passed away from a generic version of Xanax mixed with Fentanyl in November of 2017. But Xan has had a change of heart since that interview and revealed that he'll  change his name after all.

"I thought about changing my name to Diego, but for right now we gon' stay Lil Xan," he explained. "[But] later down the road, yeah, I'll change it to Diego."

Xan was also asked if he considers himself a role model.

"Yeah, of course I look at myself as a role mode," he answered. "The message I'm portraying, every positive."

After that, the TMZ reporter said what many others have said before: That Xan looks just like the actor Ethan Cukosky, who plays Carl Gallagher on the show Shameless.

"Oh yeah, that's my homey," said Xan about the actor. "Shout out Ethan, man. We got some ideas for some skits and stuff. He actually lives not too far from me. Yeah, shout out Ethan. I love him."

Do you think it'll hurt Xan's career more if he keeps his name or changes it?
