I’ve included this guy on many of my work out mixes. He’s just what you expected; typical white-guy rapper with some swift punchlines. I don’t care if you think he’s cheesy, old news, whatever because he’s got a solid craft of stringing verses together.
He’s a NY based artist who’s been pushing hard and has got some nice online marketing game. He came out last year with “Pep Rally” which you can get here for completely FREE. Now that’s a reason to click. He samples with a whole slew of artists including Oh Land (who I recently just posted about), Marina and The Diamonds, Death Cab…etc etc.
Today, Hoodie Allen just dropped, “NY is Killing Me” which was produced by Jamie, the beat/remix guru from the xx. He’s obviously trying a different sound, with some tight lyrics still. I like the diversity which I think, allows everyone to find a track they like from his collection of songs (check out his last.fm).
Right-click to enjoy.
