Jonatan Leandoer Håstad (born 18 July 1996), better known by his stage name Yung Lean, is a Swedishrapperandrecordproducer.YungLeanhas released two mixtapes, and multiple singles to YouTube under his label SadBoysEntertainment,including“Ginseng Strip2002”,“Kyoto”,and “Yoshi City”.

Born in Stockholm and growing up in the city’s Södermalm district, Yung Lean began to attract public attention whenthemusicvideoforhistrack“Kyoto” skyrocketed in popularity and succeeded over 2 million views on YouTube. He performs andrecordswith the ‘SadBoys’ —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 listof“15EuropeanRappersYouShouldKnow”. Fact magazine viewed the mixtape as “a logical continuation of Clams CasinoandBeautifulLou’sinnovativetechniques,emerging withthick, melancholy numbers that drip with a rare and earnest allure”, while Vibeincludedit intheir“The 10 MostOverlookedDebut Rap Mixtapesof 2013”, describing it as “a natural progression from thefreelyassociative, oftennonsensicalrhymes of Lil Bwith akeener sense of melody”.

Yung Lean is well known for his wearing of bucket hats. Vice claimed that “Yung Lean Is Going to Do BucketHatsLikeMacMillerDidtheSnapback” in an article of the same name. His lyrics often focus on video games, drugs, and products suchasArizonaIcedTea,NorthFacejackets, and Gatorade.

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