Do YOU know Yung Lean’s Russian army doppelgänger?

The Swedish rapper wants fans to help him find his mysterious alter ego for a music video

Amidst accusations of poisonings and political corruption, another major investigation has been launched today into the Russian Federation. Yung Lean’s doppelgänger is, apparently, a soldier in Putin’s army – and he wants us to help find him.

On the same day that the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russia, Yung Lean has posted a picture of his Slavic alter ego on Facebook, asking fans to “help me in comments with names”. The picture shows a dead ringer for the sad boy rapper, only wielding a rather hefty firearm in lieu of an Arizona Iced Tea.

Lean needs his doppelgänger, he has explained, for a music video. This video would be the musician’s first since “Red Bottom Sky” and the gruesome visuals for “Metallic Intuition”, both released towards the end of last year. The Facebook post has already sparked a flurry of excited responses, but as of yet, a definitive answer is still to be reached.

Check out the Facebook post here and revisit our 2017 profile of Yung Lean.
