Swedish rapper Yung Lean surprise dropped a new mixtape called Frost God late last night, following his LP Warlord from earlier this year. Each of its eight songs are previously unreleased except for "Hennessy & Sailor Moon"; notably, among these is a collaboration with NYC rapper A$AP Ferg, titled "Crystal City."Frost God finds the artist in a particularly despondent mood, with hints of recalcitrance and self-reproach in his delivery. Well there are a few more uptempo tunes on the collection, such as "Crystal City," altogether its tone is introspective and frosty.Lean collaborated with multi-disciplinary UK artist Dean Blunt on the shadowy video for "Fronto Kings" in November, and also contributed vocals to Frank Ocean's epochal LP Blond according to its recently-released linear notes.This Fall, Yung Lean's Sad Boys crew accused Urban Outfitters of copying their designs.Follow Alexander on Twitter.
