Jonatan Leandoer Håstad (born 18 July 1996), better known by his stage name Yung Lean, is a Swedish rapper and recordproducer. YungLean 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 when themusic video for histrack “Kyoto” skyrocketed in popularity and succeeded over 2 million views on YouTube. He performs andrecords with the ‘Sad Boys’ . beatmakers/producer Yung Sherman and Yung Gud Shorty.

Yung Lean has been controversial for his ‘slack’ rapping style. XXL magazine included him in their 2014 list of “15 EuropeanRappers YouShould Know”. Fact magazine viewed the mixtape as “a logical continuation of Clams Casino and Beautiful Lou’sinnovative techniques,emerging with thick, melancholy numbers that drip with a rare and earnest allure”, while Vibe includedit in their “The 10 Most OverlookedDebut Rap Mixtapes of 2013”, describing it as “a natural progression from the freelyassociative, often nonsensical rhymes of Lil B with akeener sense of melody”.

Yung Lean is well known for his wearing of bucket hats. Vice claimed that “Yung Lean Is Going to Do Bucket Hats Like MacMiller Did theSnapback” in an article of the same name. His lyrics often focus on video games, drugs, and products such asArizona Iced Tea, North Facejackets, and Gatorade.

In 2013, Yung Lean and his clique, the Sad Boys, toured through Europe. « hide
