Lil Bean releases the official music video for his single "Paint The Room." The IMXSEBASTIAN-directed video captures the excitement around Lil Bean lately as he's risen to the forefront of the Bay Area music scene, selling out recent shows and solidifying his place as San Francisco's newest in charge. The video comes on the heels of Lil Bean's album, Still Campaignin, which released last month via EMPIRE and earned critical attention from the likes of Pitchfork who named it one of “7 New Albums You Should Listen to Now.” The album includes standout singles “Mob Ties” featuring Jackboy, “4 The Night” featuring ZayBang and “The Hope” featuring Lil Pete. “Bean’s sense of melody is finely manicured and belies his youth in the game. He finds a way to control tides and float throughout Still Campaignin without sacrificing the project’s discipline or wasting any time.” (Passion of the Weiss) Watch the music video for “Paint The Room” here and listen to Still Campaignin here.

Since first emerging on the scene in 2019, Lil Bean’s music has been unavoidable throughout The Bay and after racking up more than 17 million streams on regional hits “Down 2 Ride” and “Swervin,” he’s ready to step into the national spotlight. Raised in San Francisco’s Geneva Towers housing project, a music career wasn’t always the obvious choice. Lil Bean pursued basketball as his first passion but after losing his father at an early age he chose to stay in the city and make a way for his family. Encouraged to rap by peers who recognized his talent early, he scored a local hit with “Side of Me,” which was released in collaboration with childhood friend ZayBang. The song put them on the map, and Lil Bean capitalized on the momentum by quickly following up with his mixtapes HoodHero and Hood Chronicles, which have gone on to generate millions of streams. Lil Bean's soft spoken delivery and ear for melodic beats propelled him as a hometown hero, leading to collaborations with many of the region's most respected artists including E-40, SOBxRBE, Shoreline Mafia, Sage The Gemini, Lil Pete and ShooterGang Kony. Earlier this year, Lil Bean was tapped by Zaytoven for a star role on the superproducer’s mixtape, Zaytoven Presents: Fo15, which is a collaborative effort to highlight The Bay's hottest new artists. Lil Bean’s dedication to his city and to uplifting those around him has remained consistent as he continues to work closely with ZayBang, releasing the 2020 collaborative album, The Label, and sitting down together for an interview with No Jumper earlier this year. The city of San Francisco has been quick to adopt Lil Bean as their voice and lately he’s been showing that he's “primed to flex his mainstream potential.” (Dirty Glove Bastard)
