The Video:

Expanding the textural and melodic palette of Brooklyn drill,¬†Sleepy Hallow¬†is the borough’s latest breakout star. Treating his fans to a fresh dose of fire, Sleepy shares¬†The Black House¬†EP.¬†Building on the style he developed for his recent project¬†Sleepy For President, Sleepy reconnects with frequent producer¬†Great John¬†to comment on how his newfound success is affecting his day-to-day life: “I got a bag and they started treatin’ me different,” rhymes Sleepy on EP highlight¬†“Different.¬†The new EP explores Sleepy’s conflicting emotions, packed with flexes that befit a rising superstar, counterbalanced with explorations of the deep paranoia that comes with success. The EP features two appearances from Sleepy’s favorite rhyme partner¬†Sheff G, including¬†“Don’t Panic Pt. 2,”¬†the sequel to a¬†Sleepy For President¬†highlight, and a spiritual continuation of Sheff G’s “Panic” series of drill anthems. Featuring an additional appearance from fellow Brooklynite¬†Jay Gwuapo,¬†The Black House¬†EP arrives via¬†Winners Circle/EMPIRE.

Released in May,¬†Sleepy For President¬†proves that the 20-year-old rapper has what it takes to become Brooklyn’s next hitmaker. The project leads off with¬†Deep End Freestyle,”¬†an eerily catchy banger that’s quickly catching fire in NYC and beyond. “Deep End Freestyle” started its rise when it 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 translated into IRL success, generating over 1 million streams per day across platforms, reaching the¬†Top 30¬†of¬†Spotify’s US Top Songs¬†and¬†Global Viral 50¬†charts, and earning a¬†Genius Verified¬†video.¬† With over 150 million combined streams and counting, “Deep End Freestyle” reached¬†#80¬†on the¬†Billboard Hot 100,¬†and earned a¬†Gold¬†certification from the RIAA in under four months of release.¬†Sleepy For President¬†is also home to¬†Molly,”¬†a NYC summer jam that you can currently hear blasting out of car speakers throughout Brooklyn. A tag team party anthem with Sheff G, “Molly” has over 9 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify. Featuring additional guest spots from fellow Brooklynites¬†Fivio Foreign¬†and¬†Jay Critch,¬†Sleepy For President¬†is available everywhere via¬†Winners Circle/EMPIRE.
