Hoodie Allen has not stopped lately. After the commercial success of his first album All-American he has just been riding the momentum. He is starting out another nationwide tour with G-Eazy and that he was going to be releasing a new Mixtape Crew Cuts. And what he have hear is a song off of that Mixtape called “Cake Boy”. This is a very different style for Hoodie but it still shows off his lyrical flow and his clever wordplay. Definitely something to look out for more of when Crew Cuts comes out.
There’s nothing better than free music from one of my favorite artists. Originally tabbed to be a track on All-American, Hoodie’s recent ep, (which was dope and you should all buy), he held on to the song and decided to give it to us for free. Filled with the wit and tricky lyrical styling that hoodie always seems to bring to the table, Im excited to see what else he has in store for us in the near future. So take a listen and enjoy the free download!
Hoodie Allen gave us his debut EP yesterday, All- American, and it has been playing on my ipod ever since. This 8 track offering is a perfect blend of introspective yet flamboyant and crazy Hoodie tracks that I have come to love. The wordplay is all on point with references to Workaholics, various basketball players, groupon, and tons of other pop culture things. Instead of trying to be more mature, and changing the sound a bit (which is what I think The Dean’s List did on their new album, Generation X), Hoodie stuck with what got him here. And based on the sales of the album, his fans validated his work and craftsmanship by getting the album to number 1 not only on the hip-hop charts, but also on the overall charts as well. This just speaks wonders to how one can gain a following by being down to earth, interacting with fans on facebook and twitter, and doing it all without a label. The HoodieMob has been a huge reason for the success of the album, with Hoodies dedicated fans getting various topics that the artist asks for trending on twitter, and also going out and purchasing his album instead of trying to download it for free somewhere. Hoodies affordable $5 price didn’t hurt either. I would definitely recommend going out and purchasing this album and listening to it for at least a day straight. With catchy singsong choruses, an incredible wit and lyricism, and some dope production, you can’t possibly ask for more. So go ahead and check out the video for “No Faith In Brooklyn”
and then do yourself a favor and buy All-American!
website. Just some background for you guys, Hoodie graduated from UPenn and was part of AEPi. He quit his job at Google to pursue his rapping career, which is pretty ballsy if you ask me. The thing that I love most about Hoodie, aside from his energy and style, is his fantastic wordplay. You have to listen to each track multiple times to identify all of the clever lines and lyrics that he manages to fit in to each song. So get excited for All-American and buy that shit on iTunes on April 10th.
Finally (2 hours late, but I really can’t complain), Hoodie gives us the first song, and video, off of his new album, All-American. Scheduled for release on April 10th, this track serves as a friendly reminder that not only is Hoodie on top of his game, but that he is ready to proceed on as an artist and stop giving us music for free. If you guys don’t already know about Hoodie, I recommend picking up his first two mixtapes, Pep Rally and Leap Year, for free from his
Hoodie Allen is getting psyched for his new EP titled ‘All-American’ coming out April 10th, and he is not the only one. His fandom is really gaining steam, and he is doing interactive things with his fans. This includes Going HAM on Mondays, where he answers questions live on Ustream; letting fans talk to him on twitter and tumblr; and even hiding a tape cassette with his album on it somewhere in New York City (Note: No one has found it yet, so keep looking)
Brenton Duvall, A DJ who’s most famous work “Mean Planes and Taylor Gang” (mashing up Taylor Swift and Wiz Khalifa) has put a remix on Hoodie Allen’s song “Moon Bounce” off of Hoodie’s mixtape “Leap Year”
