One of Brooklyn drill’s most important faces dropped a new project this week “from the can.”
Despite being behind bars since last summer, Flatbush, Brooklyn’s Sheff G has maintained a presence on the streets with a steady stream of quality releases facilitated by his tight-knit team at Winners Circle — many of which are included on his new release From the Can.
As usual, the new project is fully produced by Winners Circle secret weapon, Great John. It includes some of his biggest collabs released over the past year including “On Go” with Polo G and “Run It Up” with A Boogie and right-hand man Sleepy Hallow — and he’s joined by fellow NYC big dogs, Fivio Foreign and Rowdy Rebel for “Kiss Ya Neck.”
While serving a two-year sentence, Sheff has kept his name alive with heat from the vault and extremely well-crafted animated visuals for tracks like “Drum Dummy” and “Break From It.” To accompany the new release, fans were treated with a non-animated music video for “No Remorse” featuring a ton of behind-scenes-footage that recaps his and Sleepy’s storybook rise to the top (all directed by Aylo).
From the Can also contains two new collabs from Brooklyn’s drill’s most dynamic duo in “Like Me” and “Bad Breed” — as well as their joint track with labelmate Jay Bezzy, “Overseas.”
Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow are two of the most exciting and unique artists to emerge out of the Brooklyn drill wave. Amid a crowded scene, they managed to separate themselves from the pack with their versatile, original sound that spans from gritty street bars to surprisingly gentle melodies — almost always backed by the distinct production of Great John.
The two first really popped in 2019 around the release of Sheff’s debut project The Unluccy Luccy Kid, which included many of their early hits including “We Getting Money” and “Flows.” He followed up in 2020 with One and Only featuring popular tracks “Moody,” “Weight on Me” and “No Suburban Pt. 2” (the follow-up to his infamous “No Suburban” that helped launch his career) and Proud of Me Now. As a result of becoming one of Brooklyn drill’s most defining artists, he’s attracted collabs with many of the biggest names in the game, from King Von to Lil Tjay — all while maintaining a fierce independent streak, keeping everything in-house amongst the Winners Circle family.
Few have been able to navigate the unforgiving music landscape of the 2020s the way the Winners Circle guys have, but even “from the can” Sheff G continues to shine. Just imagine what he’ll be able to accomplish when he touches down — hopefully sooner rather than later.
