10 essential cuts from the Swedish Sad Boy
It isn't everyday you sit down to write about a rapper from Sweden, let alone an 18-year-old who's selling out shows across the country with a style completely his own. But Jonatan Håstad, better known as Yung Lean, is quite the anomaly.
Yung Lean released his debut mixtape Unknown Death 2002, about a week before his 17th birthday, and has been on a path to increasing success ever since. Last year's Unknown Memory helped to solidify his position in the rap game as the world was given thirteen new songs of his cloud rap style.
With attention from Vibe, XXL, and even The New York Times, Yung Lean has garnered a ton of attention during his short career. His style is that captivating, though. Let's dig into the artist's 10 essential tracks.
