We at Audible Treats stand in solidarity with the protesters across the country who seek justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. As a company, we are developing a concrete plan of action to combat the deleterious effects of systemic racism and police brutality. Currently, our team members are donating to just causes, marching in the streets, speaking out in public and private, and further educating ourselves about America’s racist past and present so that we are better equipped to call out injustice when we recognize it.
We take our role seriously as a conduit for amplifying voices and stories that tend to be ignored by the mainstream media. As for our day-to-day work of publicizing our artists and their stories, we’re working closely with them to find a balance between their need for artistic expression and their solidarity with the protest movement.
There is strength in numbers. Here is a resource that lists ways you can take action: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Sleepy Hallow Announces Sleepy For President, His New Project, Releasing June 5th via Winners Circle/EMPIRE
The Upcoming Project Features the Viral Single “Deep End Freestyle” and Boasts Guest Spots from Sheff G, Fivio Foreign, and Jay Critch
A master of nimble melodies and gripping melodies, Sleepy Hallow is the secret weapon of the Brooklyn drill scene. Kicking off his campaign to take over the mainstream, Sleepy announces Sleepy For President, his upcoming mixtape. The upcoming tape expands and refines Sleepy’s sound, opening up the hermetic and dark world of East Flatbush to welcome a variety of new sonic elements, adding bright keys and ethereal vocal samples to the gentle guitars and subsonic bass that defined his previous project Don’t Sleep. Still, Sleepy For President is Brooklyn to its bones, offering multiple appearances from Sleepy’s running mate Sheff G and guest spots from BK mainstays Fivio Foreign and Jay Critch. With expansive production from Great John, Sleepy For President arrives on June 5th via Winners Circle/EMPIRE.
Sleepy For President leads off with “Deep End Freestyle,” an eerily catchy banger that’s quickly becoming Sleepy’s biggest hit. Quickly climbing global charts, “Deep End Freestyle” gets its power from Sleepy’s charisma and the haunting beat from Great John, featuring a ghostly female vocal grimly intoning “I don’t think you want to go off the deep end.” The song quickly gained a viral following on TikTok, inspiring nearly 450k video creations and tens of millions of video views. The TikTok success of “Deep End Freestyle” is quickly translating into IRL success, generating over 1 million streams per day across platforms, reaching the Top 40 of Spotify’s US Top Songs chart, and earning a Genius Verified video. With over 40 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify and counting, “Deep End Freestyle” is looking likely to become Sleepy’s first Hot 100 hit.
Originally known for his fruitful partnership with childhood friend Sheff G, Sleepy Hallow broke out on his own in a big way in 2019. The 20-year-old rapper guested on some of Sheff’s most notable hits, including “Flows” and “Panic Pt. 4,” before making waves with his own project DON’T SLEEP. With bonafide Brooklyn bangers like “Breakin Bad (Okay)” (8+ million Spotify streams), “I Get Luv” (3 million Spotify streams), and “Bestie” (2 million Spotify streams), DON’T SLEEP helped Sleepy surpass 100 million total streams in early 2020.
