Sleepy Hallow’s new project, Sleepy For President is out now via Winner’s Circle/EMPIRE. I should note that with everything going on, it was important to Sleepy to share his album with fans while voicing his support for the #BLM movement on socials. The outcome is a bold statement piece from the East Flatbush, BK artist that’s able to flex his melodic abilities and expand and refine his sound.
A definite standout on the project to me is “Water” (feat. Sheff G), a song where Sleepy highlights the dangers he faces in his day-to-day with lyrics that are, I think, relevant to the times: “My life so televised, you ain’t got a gun and you might die / Told shawty if we don’t f*** right now, I don’t know how long Ima be alive.” Other highlights include “Baddie Betty Boop” (feat. Fivio Foreign), which serves as a confident ladies-man cut, and “Bankroll,” a song that looks to the future in light of his recent success while Sleepy floats over gentle guitar riffs.
