BK Secret Weapon Sleepy Hallow Shares ‘Sleepy For President’ Project, Ft. Sheff G, Fivio Foreign + More
Talking his smack with panache and nimble melody, Sleepy Hallow is emerging as one of Brooklyn’s brightest rap talents. Coming through with his boldest statement yet, the East Flatbush rapper shares Sleepy For President, a new full-length project. Expanding and refining Sleepy’s sound, Sleepy For President boasts production from Brooklyn maestro Great John, who crafts a wide-ranging sonic palette that adds bright keys and ethereal vocal samples to the gentle guitars and subsonic bass that defined Sleepy’s previous project DON’T SLEEP. The new project brings confrontational drill anthems like “Don’t Panic” (a spiritual sequel to Sleepy’s “Panic” collaborations with close friend Sheff G), introspective reality raps like “Anxiety Freestyle, ” uber-confident ladies man cut “Baddie Betty Boop,” and inventive smack talkers like breakaway hit “Deep End Freestyle.” Featuring multiple appearances from Sheff G, and guest spots from fellow Brooklynites Fivio Foreign and Jay Critch, Sleepy For President is available everywhere via Winners Circle/EMPIRE.
Sleepy For President kicks off with the breakaway hit “Deep End Freestyle,” an eerily catchy banger that’s quickly catching fire in NYC and beyond. Currently 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 from Fousheé 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 30 of Spotify’s US Top Songs and Global Viral 50 charts, and earning a Genius Verified video. With over 40 million combined streams and counting, “Deep End Freestyle” is reached Rolling Stone’s Top 100 chart and 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. Listed at #24 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart, Sleepy is ready to burst out of Brooklyn and take over the national scene.
