yung lean and friends made us a mixtape to celebrate their new sadboys gear drop
Shop hard. Play loud.
When Yung Lean, Yung Sherman and Yung Gud dropped a new collection of Sadboys Gear a couple of weeks back, it sold out in just two hours. More than just merch, their embroidered hoodies, utility vests and rose motif t-shirts were swiftly followed by the launch of a collaboration with Eytys on the Sadboys Spider, a leather low-top with green soles and spikey cable-tie laces. Previously just in black, red and brown, the boys will be releasing a second batch of gear in new colourways, as pictured exclusively here on Yung Gud, which is due to drop tomorrow, Thursday 8 December at 4pm GMT on sadboysgear.com
"We want to take a moment and salute all Yung Lean/Sadboys fans worldwide for the support," Yung Lean told i-D. "2016 been a crazy year and this will be our last drop for a while, c u in 2017 we´re just getting started." To celebrate, and simply because they're nice like that, the trio have made us a mixtape of what they're listening to these days. Opening with a bang and French Montana's Stick Up Boyz, the selection jumps between laid back trap and the industrial lo-fi of Dirty Beaches, Lexxi and Aphex Twin's selected ambient works before ending on Vår's cinematic No One Dances Quite Like My Brothers. So this is what it sounds like to be a Sadboy...
