It’s Winners Circle Wednesdays and Sleep Hallow shares “2055,” another song and video from the Brooklyn Drill rapper’s forthcoming debut album. Director Aylo teamed up with animators Owen Khang, Akam Hussein Rustam and Melis Sosa for the futuristic animated video.
Produced by Great John, “2055” offers another glimpse into Sleepy’s world from the streets of Brooklyn. Last month Sleepy dropped “2 Sauce,” which Rap Radar described as “super savage.” Lyrical Lemonade stated, “One of the most appealing qualities within a Sleepy Hallow song…is the fact that his deep voice just works so well when mixed with a higher-pitched vocal chop like the one heard in this record, so I knew it was going to be a hit from the moment I pressed play.”
Hailing from East Flatbush, Brooklyn and one of the breakout stars of the Brooklyn Drill hip-hop scene, Sleepy Hallow came to prominence in 2020 with the RIAA Gold-certified hit “Deep End Freestyle” which featured vocals by Fousheé. Recently selected as one of HipHopDX Rising Stars 2021 and BET Amplified Artist of the Month (January), Hallow’s impressive repertoire of EPs – Sleepy Hallow Presents: Sleepy For President, The Black House, Don’t Sleep – has earned him coveted “best of” lists recognition from XXL, Complex, UpRoxx and more.
