Yung Lean @ Black Cat Washington DC December 3 2014

When I see a label or a group of musicians start something on their own that just gets bigger beyond their control, it fascinates me.  Yung Lean, the 18-year-old rapper from Stockholm Sweden and his crew of Sad Boys have accomplished just that.  They have started a movement of kids that love his music.  Primarily with the power of the internet and of course hard work he has cultivated a substantial fan base.

There is plenty of critic out there on Yung Lean.  His skills on the mic and the Sad Boys movement as a whole. However, he has found a way to get his message across to a lot of listeners.  That translates into tours, selling merchandise, and making music for a living.
