Hoodie Allen just let loose an impressive 11 song free album Crew Cuts. We got to sample “Cake Boy” and “Fame Is For Assholes (Ft. Chiddy)” which both came with music videos. The entire project has Hoodie venturing into some unknown territory truly expanding his boundries as an artist. He brings out a stacked lineup of features from artists like Chiddy, Shwayze, G-Eazy, Skizzy Mars, OCD & Moosh, Jared Evan and Chance the Rapper. This is easily some of his best work to date. This follows up his recent All American EP, and past free mixtape Leap Year. Enjoy!

Hoodie Allen drops us off Fame Is For Assholes or for short FIFA featuring Chiddy (of Chiddy Bang), the second single from his upcoming free album Crew Cuts. This is smooth chilled out hip-hop ballad is a complete 180 switch compared to his agressive 808 filled Cake Boy. He takes a classic doo-wop influence with a fresh upbeat hip-hop style his fans have grown to love. The video follows the high school rivalry of Team Hoodie and Team Chiddy paying a tribute to the film Hoosiers and the Wolf. Grab the free download of this on Crew Cuts February 20th.

Hoodie Allen changes up his pace for his latest song with music video, “Cake Boy”. This is the first song off his upcoming free album Crew Cuts set to release February 20th. This track steps outside of Hoodie’s indie inspired hip-hop box and recruits legendary hip-hop producer !llmind (Kanye West, 50 Center, Etc.). He delivers a bass heavy 808 filled production which is simple yet effective. Hoodie goes for more of a hip-hop edge and spits some fast paced wordplay while still maintaing his unique vibe. The video is fittingly filled with models and cake. Enjoy.

We’ve been supporting this guy since his incredibly catchy ‘You Are Not A Robot’ single and the Pep Rally mixtape. TSIS also sponsored his second mixtape Leap Year mixtape. Last night at midnight Hoodie released his latest EP and first release sold through iTunes. Hoodie Allen’s goal is, as he stated is, “trying to shock the world” by making his release get to the top album charts on iTunes. Less then 12 hours after its release this EP made it to #1 on iTunes. Hoodie proves with hard work you really can do anything. The EP shows how great of a songwriter Hoodie can be and shows a little bit more then just a college rapper. This is a huge day for everyone doing anything independent. Stream the album below, and above check out the music video for “No Faith In Brooklyn”, which was one of my favorite tracks on the EP.
