Washington DC’s Yung Gleesh is one of the city’s most undeniable talents, and he jumps right back into focus with this latest drop.

A taster of his forthcoming mixtape Cleansides Finest 3, which is set to appear on September 16, ‘Since When’ is skeletal and menacing – a far cry from the quirky club weirdness emerging from Atlanta right now.

The video – shot by Will Hoopes – shows a side of DC that’s far from the tourist-ridden streets of Pennsylvania Avenue, and relates to plenty of the themes Gleesh touched on when FACT’s US team caught up with him at this year’s SXSW.

He’s got a busy few months ahead, aside from the mixtape launch, Gleesh is heading to Reddit for an AMA with subreddit Hip Hop Heads on September 10 at 4:00pm ET, and if you’re in the Brooklyn area, he’s set to perform at this year’s Fools Gold Day Off on September 1.

Update: you can now download the track by visiting LiveMixTapes.
