After being featured on Lil Tjay‘s State of Emergency project last month, Sleepy Hallow has resurfaced with his own album Sleepy For President. The rapper has dropped off 12 tracks laced with his signature Brooklyn drill sound while enlisting the likes of Fivio Foreign, Jay Critch and more to assist throughout.
Out via Winner’s Circle/EMPIRE, Sleppy Hallow’s album was released in tandem with the artist’s continued vocal support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement on his social media channels. He directly references the issues that sparked the ongoing racial justice protests with tracks like “Bad Luck,” where the musician raps that the “cops shot another Black guy, I know you hear it all the time.”
In “Water” featuring Sheff G (who joins in on a total of three tracks on the album), Sleepy shares more anecdotes regarding his everyday concerns as a Black man. Still, the rapper takes time to drop off confident bars about his lifestyle and entertaining the ladies in records like “Baddie Betty Boop” (feat. Fivio Foreign) and “Bankroll,” which recaps what it took to make it to success and what it’s like to be there.
