Biography

Stockholm, Sweden

Jonatan Leandoer Håstad (born 18 July 1996), better known by his stage name 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 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/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 European Rappers You Should Know”. Fact magazine viewed the 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”.

Yung Lean is well known for his wearing of bucket hats. Vice claimed that “Yung Lean Is Going to Do Bucket Hats Like Mac Miller Did the Snapback” in an article of the same name. His lyrics often focus on video games, drugs, and products such as Arizona Iced Tea, North Face jackets, Gatorade, and about the pain involved with growing up alongside massive cultural and technological change.

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