Back in June, Sleepy Hallow released his latest project Still Sleep?, a 14-track project that sees a single assist from close collaborator Sheff G. This past week, the Brooklyn based star dropped off a new visual from said project for “Scrub,” a flip of TLC’s classic cut “No Scrubs” that features production from Great John and sees Sleepy Hallow rapping about a woman who’s caught his interest:
“She said she don’t want no scrub nigga, but since we got a bag, she been tryna fuck with us, she stuck up on the gang like a sticker, she wants some Insta’ fame, we just tryna get richer, she said like, ‘Ooh, what’s up? Let me kick it with you,’ look, I’m with the gang, who you bringing with you?”
Matching the song’s familiar sample is a matching visual that pulls from Hype Williams’ iconic clip, which scenes of Sleepy Hallow performing the track in a CGI’s room with a wall of televisions and three women that presumably represent T-Boz, Chilli, and the late Left Eye.
Last year, Sleepy Hallow dropped off the full-length body of work Sleepy Hallow Presents: Sleepy For President, which contained 12 hard-hitting drill cuts and contributions from Fousheé, Fivio Foreign, Jay Critch, and — of course — Sheff G, who joined his Winners Circle Entertainment compadre on three songs. A month later, Hallow would keep his momentum going with The Black House EP, which saw him alongside Sheff and Jay Gwuapo throughout five tracks. Outside of his own work, Hallow could also be heard on cuts like DJ Drewski’s “2020 Vision,” Woo Reyz’s “No Gang” and “Nycha (Remix),” and DJ Megan Ryte’s “Strapped.”
