I first heard of Hoodie this past summer after hearing his track “Owen Wilson” (featuring Starf*cker) off the Bro Bible Summer Mixtape. Me and Siegz began to listen to his music on a regular basis where we then released “Owen Wilson” on Best You Never Heard Summer Mix back in early September. We had a chance to catch up with him shortly after there were we conducted a video interview which you can view below:
Since then Hoodie has been quite busy. Late last year he released the Pep Rally mixtape which received over 300,000 downloads. Still in no rush to sign a record deal, Hoodie Allen is currently touring across the country, performing at SXSW, with many more West Coast stops coming up.
He is currently working on his next mixtape, Leap Year, which he plans to drop later this year. Lots of exciting things from Hoodie Allen coming soon. In the meantime, enjoy a few of my favorite tracks by him.
“You Are Not A Robot” (featuring Marina and The Diamonds)
“Words of Wisdom” (featuring Two Door Cinema Club)
This kid continues to develop into quite a special talent. He is the next big white rap and is quickly gaining mainstream success and he is only getting more popular. I look forward to what is next by him.
