  • I had never heard of him until this documentary I think it's amazing how he has such a connection with the audience in the same with the audience how they have a connection with him just watching this alone made me interested in him. I haven't even listened to his music yet

  • What is really important point showed in this documentary, is actually the power of their friendship. Even when Yung Gud (was it him? Do not remember clearly just now.) had to leave for his own emotional well-being, they all were incredible friends who started together, got trough it together and are still - doing it together. It is this bond that saved them, I feel like. Because then we had Lil Peep - a very important artist who were around so many fake friends and just because he was too nice, he would let strangers sleep in his bed etc. He would be constantly pushed to be more druggy even when it was clear he had psychological problems!! I feel like there is this very big difference in both stories - Lean, God no but - could have been lost. But he had friends who cared for him and who would not let him go harder and harder just for the sake of it. FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC

  • One day my friend from highschool was like “yo! You have to check out this music video, this kid looks JUST like you” I watched Motorola on my friends windows vista PC in 2013 and from then on I was hooked. I got the whole school hooked too, and because of my physical appearance being very close to leans, everyone called me yung lean. GTB, sadboys, lean, bladee, thaiboy all made such huge influences on my life. I can’t believe that was almost a decade ago. This music is timeless man. In a world of corporate pop music and stale rap it was like a breath of fresh air. Thank you lean, bladee, the whole crew. You guys changed my life for real.

  • “It was more than music, it was a cause..” No, it’s literally just shttty music. Good drugs have a way of making even shttty music seem transcendent, though. The drugs were always better than his trashasss music.

  • Barron’s dad... I think just wanted to give him a chance to be succesful in the industry that’s why he never bothered to complain, that’s why he put the blame on others, that’s why even the when the signs of addiction were in front of him he never said anything till after the damage was done he probably wanted his son to be happy

  • I remember meeting Yung Lean outside of one of his smaller shows in New York. He was so far gone though, this was when the drugs were really beginning to get involved, it was an anti-climatic meet however I only have love for him. I saw so much of myself in him and that's why his music helps me so much. Happy he got out of it you know - happy his friends and family protected him too and didn't enable him further. Great documentary!

  • This was really POWERFUL & its like looking at my Younger self.This has inspired me to get back into Music with being an 80"s Baby and my most Influential Band who Changed my life to want to become an Musician (Nirvana)I have also struggled with My Mental & Addiction to Drugs.I Thought when I was in my Darkest Days I would be FOREVER 27.Addicted to Heroin & Xanax.This has changed my Life & I would Love to collaborate with The Director & tell him My Story that will BLOW HIS MIND.This documentary is So REAL & RAW & exactly how I want My Documentary to be Projected.You are extremely gifted in the sense of setting the mood in each chapter of the film,addressing serious issues such as Mental Health & Addiction that a lot of directors steer away from because of Tragic things that happen as a direct result of the Disease of Addiction such as Physcosis,Mental Break downs, Paranoia,sleep deprivation,Broken Hearts and Broken Relationships,Health Issues,Violence and Trauma,Getting in Trouble with The Law,Going to Jail or Prison & Last but most Horrific part of self Medicating because of Mental Health & Addiction problems..... DEATH......You have A very Unique style of how to" shine The Light " just right for those who have struggled with those issues and to help others understand it better who don't.It is Extremely Dark & Scary place for Everyone who is affected by it.Many people Have Lost Loved Ones to this disease who wants us Isolated & alone, until we Die.My Heart goes out to ANYONE in the Struggle with The Disease WITH NO CURE.And those who have Mental Health issues as well as Dual Diagnose.There is ONLY ONE who can help us Live with it.That is GOD,MAY YOU FIND HIM NOW.#ThzChozen1 #LIvingproof #TheTruth

  • One of the 3 aint done with drugs or that world, Axel. You can see it in him he isnt ready to be a normal person, he will end up on serious drugs i think, chasing the high of the drugs and the journey they went on. Jonatan's brain has rewired different and the other dude he went home knowing it had gone to far. Barron played a big part in everyones downfall as well has his own by fuelling them on their journey, sex drugs n rock n roll and all that but he couldnt of expected to play with fire without getting burned, as for Barrons father what a prick blaming these guys for his sons death, he was the fkin manager.........

The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. We must be willing to turn from sin and to believe the Gospel, to receive Jesus forgiveness Mark 1:15 He who does the will 📖 of God abides for eternity 1st John 2:17 Visual Bible movies on SEslow, Matthew, Acts, Luke, John !!! 🙏
