    Yung Lean

    Alternative Rap

    Yung Lean, is a Swedish rapper and record producer. Yung Lean has released two mixtapes, and multiple singles to YouTube under his label Sad Boys Entertainment, including "Ginseng Strip 2002", "Kyoto", and "Yoshi City." 

    Born in Stockholm and growing up in the city's Södermalm district, Yung Lean began to attract public attention in 2013 when the music video for his track "Kyoto" skyrocketed in popularity and succeeded over 2 million views on YouTube. He performs and records with the 'Sad Boys' — beatmakers/producers Yung Sherman and Yung Gud.

    Yung Lean has been controversial for his 'slack' rapping style. XXL magazine included him in their 2014 list of "15 European Rappers You Should Know". Fact magazine viewed the Unknown Death 2002 mixtape as "a logical continuation of Clams Casino and Beautiful Lou's innovative techniques, emerging with thick, melancholy numbers that drip with a rare and earnest allure", while Vibe included it in their "The 10 Most Overlooked Debut Rap Mixtapes of 2013", describing it as "a natural progression from the freely associative, often nonsensical rhymes of Lil' B with a keener sense of melody". His lyrics often focus on video games, drugs, and products such as Arizona Iced TeaGatorade and various clothing brands such as NikeThe North Face and Billionaire Boys Club.

    In 2013, Fact published an article titled "Rise of the Sad Boys: from Kompakt to Yung Lean, a history of how electronic musicians have worn their sadness on their sleeves", which claimed that "[Yung Lean]'s mixtape Unknown Death 2002 is the epitome of sad rap".

    In 2014, Yung Lean and Sad Boys embarked on the White Marble Tour, playing in 24 cities across Europe. Shortly after the conclusion of this tour Sad Boys announced a further Black Marble Tour which would include several performances in cities across North America and Canada. The first of these shows took place in July at the Webster Hall in New York City, and was well received by writers for publications such as XXL, and The New York Times.

    His new album Unknown Memory is set for release on September 23rd, 2014.
