Yung Lean Delivers A Trippy And Magical Journey On “Stranger” Yung Lean's "Stranger" is phenomenal.
Swedish sensation Yung Lean is one of hip-hop’s most enigmatic personalities. The self-professed sadboy has once described his music as “influenced by fantasy and nature and you know, finding like little elfs in the forest, and being high on cocaine while being in a Death Star in Star Wars, and just creating our own worlds.” The influences are certainly felt in his lyrical content, an imaginative blend of traditional hip-hop stuntin’ and eerie, folkloric imagery. The trend continues on his brand new album Stranger, only something feels different this time around. There’s an artistic confidence in Yung Lean that was only being discovered on previous releases, and in many ways, it’s as if he has reached his final evolutionary form.
