It’s been a rough few weeks for SoundCloud rapper, Lil Xan. He just broke up with his girlfriend of two months, Noah Cyrus, because she either cheated on him or because it was all a ploy by their record company to get some Spotify plays. And now he’s been hospitalized after he says he ate “too many Hot Cheetos.”

In a video shared on Instagram, the 21-year-old rapper says he had to go to the hospital on Monday because he started puking up “a little blood” after snacking a little too hard.

Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and the Mexican snack Takis are apparently a leading cause of gastric-related hospital visits among kids, with one Memphis, Tennessee, children’s hospital estimating this year that it sees 100–150 patients per year following overconsumption of spicy snacks. Whether this has nothing or absolutely everything to do with the 2012 banger, “Hot Cheetos and Takis,” is still up for debate.
