Listen to MC Lars & Mega Ran's Latest Literary Bop SLEEPY HOLLOW

Always pushing boundaries, nerdcore rappers MC LARS & MEGA RAN (whose collective collaboration list includes songs with "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC, KRS-ONE, MIKE EAGLE and KOOL KEITH, amongst others) tell the story of WASHINGTON IRVING'S classic Legend of Sleepy Hollow on "Sleepy Hollow," the fifth single from their upcoming album The Dewey Decibel System. With a beat by Brooklyn producer RICH MATTHEW (whose credits include work for SOUL COUGHING'S MIKE DOUGHTY, RiFF RAFF, and DE LA SOUL), this song channels the energy of RUN THE JEWELSwith the storytelling skills of SLICK RICK, putting a modern twist on the American classic, while referencing BROTHER ALI, the INSANE CLOWN POSSE and the DISNEY classic film.
