With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
Sheff G - “Make It Happen” [ft. Sleepy Hallow]
This past weekend I came across a video clip of Astoria, Queens’ Steinway St. that was recorded in the middle of the night. No social distancing was in effect, and, of course, the soundtrack to this chaos was Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow’s “Breaking Bad” blaring from a car radio. Even though I’ve spent much of this New York summer inside, I unintentionally hear the sounds of the Flatbush duo when I do go out. On “Make It Happen,” the pair’s newest track, their deep baritone voices smoothly flow on an acoustic guitar-sampling Great John beat. Carried by Sheff and Sleepy’s electric chemistry, the song feels primed to join “Breaking Bad,” “Molly,” “Deep End Freestyle,” and “Moody” in their seemingly endless list of local hits. A lost summer can’t stop their moment.
