Hoodie Allen

Hoodie Allen is a Rap Artist hailing from Long Island, New York. Hoodie  writes great “Pop” songs with intelligent lyrics and is able to serve them up to you with perfect cadence and with a style all to his own. Hoodie has been super busy lately touring in support of his most recent mixtape “Pep Rally” and we were lucky enough to get a few minutes with him to snag an interview. Hope you enjoy!

Interview:

Daily Unsigned: Hoodie Allen? Is that a nickname? Is there a story behind your name?

Hoodie: Yes, Hoodie is a nickname and I kind of adapted it all to a little tongue-in-cheek pun. It just stuck.

Daily Unsigned: Describe your process of writing? What influences and inspiration do you pull from when writing and crafting your songs? Do you make the beats first and then lyrics?

Hoodie: I feel like I’m constantly writing and hearing melodies. I’ll sit down and jot it out but much of the process does start by being inspired by a beat I have and then going from there.  I just write about what I’m feeling–what’s
on my mind? Usually freestyling to the beat will conjur up a melody or an
idea that sticks and then I run with it.

Daily Unsigned: Have you ever performed at a real high school pep rally? And would you?

Hoodie Allen: I haven’t but I would haha I know that my own high school played my music during their pep rally this year which was funny.

Daily Unsigned: If you could do a song collaboration with anyone, who would it be and why?

Hoodie Allen: Can I take the production efforts of Mark Ronson and guest vocals from Amy Winehouse? Right now that’d be fresh to me.

Daily Unsigned: What was the song that broke you out? What started the hype around Hoodie Allen?

Hoodie: In June, I released a song called “You Are Not A Robot” and that was the catalyst for everything that followed.

Daily Unsigned: What are your future plans for 2011?

Hoodie Allen: Being the king of content. New music, a lot more visuals, a lot more shows. Let people really get a better picture of who I am and where I want to fit in the music world.

Daily Unsigned: As an up and coming emerging artist, what advice can you lend to others  following the same career path as you?

Hoodie: DON’T DO IT! Nah I’m kidding. Be passionate, don’t get frustrated and do what you believe in and eventually it will get it’s proper shine.

Yogy

Bay Area bomber Yogy has been on his grind for several years doing shows, making videos and mixtapes simply just keeping himself as busy as humanely possible (If you don’t believe us check his MySpace).  The kids a star and while his bravado is believable it isn’t intimidating, he bounces so seamlessly off the beat you can’t help but be entranced by his cadence.
