Video: Yung Lean, “Plastic G-Sh☹ck”

A day after a really endearing interview on Noisey—”I’ve never been so happy as when Friendzone tweeted me”—here’s a new video from the mesmerizing Swedish teenager Yung Lean. He’s like the rapping version of jj, but a little more worrying (see: awkward gun toting). Somewhat surprisingly, Yung Lean’s Sad Boys crew is signed to California oddball and E-40 progeny Issue’s label Teaholics, so there’s hope this thing might actually have legs after the first goofy high wears off. (Though you can already anticipate some critics’ vitriol if the project does get bigger.) Yung Lean’s debut mixtape Unknown Death 2002 is planned for release on July 4th.

    Eh, he’s very much just a product of trends, cashing in on irony (branding/style/flat singing) – over some dull trap. I dunno, nothing exciting.

    He’s definitely a product of the internet but there’s nothing ironic about this at all, and no cash-in (like there’s money in music like this? are you nuts?). If it was 1983 he’d have a punk band. w/e
