Big Lean is hoping to make his own indelible imprint with his island-tinged music. Having already worked with the likes of Nipsey Hussle (“California Water“) and producer Murda Beatz (“Ah Lie“), Lean has attracted the attention of and gained a fan in Drake.
Lean dropped a video for his late-summer single “Stamina,” which is produced by Sevn Thomas (Drake’s “Pop Style,” PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s “Don’t Run,” Rihanna’s “Work”). Having been featured on OVO Sound Radio, Lean is hoping that the spotlight will shine brighter on him.
