Hoodie Allen: “Fame Is For Assholes”

So last week Hoodie Allen dropped the first track, “Cake Boy" from his next mixtape Crew Cuts and it got kind of a mixed response cause it wasn’t like your traditional Hoodie cut with the switched up happy go lucky samples and fun sing along choruses. But it was showcasing Hoodie as a guy who can do more than rhyme witty wordplay over happy go lucky samples and sing along choruses. For those that were worried, thou shalt not fear cause HA has delivered. “Fame Is For Assholes” is back to familiar ground dropping names and wit waiting for all of us to figure it out and pick it up, with a feature from Chiddy Bang.

Hoodie Allen: “Hey Now”

Sometimes I’m wary of tracks released a little later because they didn’t make it onto the album. I start to ask questions like why didn’t it get on it, what’s wrong with it…why don’t you love it like the other tracks, what did it do? Then I realise those questions are stupid and silly. 

Here’s a new track from Hoodie Allen, “Hey Now” that didn’t make it onto his first full-length album All American but still goes hard and shows how far Hoodie has come since the early days. Be sure to catch Hoodie on his upcoming tour in September, y’all. Dates is here.

VIDEO: Hoodie Allen “No Faith In Brooklyn ft. Jhameel”

Waking up to a new Hoodie Allen album is a great thing to wake up to and Hoodie’s debut EP on iTunes All American is awesome. Its his first album where he hasn’t relied on samples and instead showcases the production talents in the Hoodie Allen camp. If you haven’t grabbed a copy yet go do it, it’s only $4.99 in US and £3.49 in UK so there really is no excuse and Hoodie has been awfully good to us before with the free music. To give you a little taste check out the video above for “No Faith In Brooklyn” featuring Jhameel. 

**Update**

Because I’m good to you, you can stream All American right here. Please support Hoodie and go and buy it too
