Sleepy Hallow premieres the music video for the Marshmello-featured “GBG” song produced by Great John & Boone McElroy.

No one hears “Sleepy Hallow” and thinks EDM, the same way that no one hears Marshmello and thinks “Brooklyn drill.” But what’s great about these genres is that they work so well with so many others, and with each other, you can get a catchy and faithful song to its roots. Moreover, the two artists just released the new single “GBG,” which features a high-pitched vocal sample that sounds like the lead-up to a progressive house drop of sorts. However, the song is firmly planted in New York drill territory, as the Flatbush MC always does with his hard-hitting material. While it might not be a new take on the genre or anything outside of either’s traditional comfort zones or skill sets, it makes for a pretty straightforward and instantly satisfying cut.

Furthermore, a great deal of that satisfaction comes from the fact that Sleepy Hallow stays on a consistent flow and locks into the beat smoothly. His voice propels the whole thing, rendering the chipmunks lead melodic vocals to a simple background addition to the main draw. “GBG” also benefits from a seamless verse-chorus-verse structure, where the 23-year-old’s bars are what moves one section of the track to the next rather than a melodic or instrumental switch-up. Sure, it might not be the most elaborate structure, but it’s a clear and righteous effort to spotlight Hallow’s presence on this song. He’s a leader in his scene, and one that’s unfortunately had a lot of time in his career cut short by external issues.

Meanwhile, for those unfamiliar with Marshmello, this is far from the first time that the EDM giant has crossed over into the hip-hop or R&B space. Just this year, he released the bubbly Brent Faiyaz collaboration “Fell In Love,” and will likely continue to expand his credits in the future.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Mello made it right
Great John on the beat by the way

[Chorus]
You know I gotta stay with a stick
Get Back Gang in my city it’s sick
Said she love me she poppin’ a tit
And I drop an opp I ain’t droppin’ a diss
I know niggas hate when I’m talkin’ my shit
Niggas hate me I’m somethin’ like Chris
You ain’t tryna spin better get out the whip
Better get out the— Fuck that

[Verse: 1]
Shit got lit I was taking that trip
Slide thru me and Billie on some shit
Free Fresh, That’s really the RIP
Free Totetact
Free Benji and Mick
He ain’t with it we do him like Rick
And shawty she on me, she tryna get hit
Ya I’m good, she (Gucci) proud of (Prada) my drip
She said she adore my Dior kicks
Fuck a Uber, you gotta get Lyft
In the air that’s an opp in a spliff
Never care bout no popular shit
They might pick up the heat, when I’m droppin’ this shit
I’m a winner you know I don’t quit
They can stay where they know they can say
Drive me crazy, don’t gotta permit
Bitch I’m outta my body, I’m ready to glitch

[Chorus]
You know I gotta stay with a stick
Get Back Gang in my city it’s sick
Said she love me she poppin’ a tit
And I drop an opp I ain’t droppin’ a diss
I know niggas hate when I’m talkin’ my shit
Niggas hate me I’m somethin’ like Chris
You ain’t tryna spin better get out the whip
Better get out the— Fuck that

[Verse: 2]
Still ten toes with my foot in the mud
Said I’m ugly now she wanna fuck
I stay with protection my gun in my glove
Ain’t no cappin’ he really a thug
They been tryna be me since I gotta bust
They gon’ hate that I’m getting the love
And baby I’m slick like I’m catching a bug
Run up on me he catching a slug
Gotta keep me a strap in this club
You know if he lack then we packin’ ’em up
Took a strap he ain’t clap it enough
Ain’t no cap in my rap
He a pack if he sus
Shoot first we ain’t asking ’em much
They like “We getting active or what?”
New whip I be switching shit up
And they know they could look but they know not to touch

[Chorus]
You know I gotta stay with a stick
Get Back Gang in my city it’s sick
Said she love me she poppin’ a tit
And I drop an opp I ain’t droppin’ a diss
I know niggas hate when I’m talkin’ my shit
Niggas hate me I’m something like Chris
You ain’t tryna spin better get out the whip
Better get out the— Fuck that
