Peter's Room

[SUBURB-HOP] New York rapper Hoodie Allen first came on the scene a few years ago as part of the “frat rap” wave, which consisted of innocent party jams that appealed to white 20-something college students. In actuality, Allen’s songs strive for a little more depth than those usually associated with that scene, but there’s no denying that the young MC has a certain type of audience. He’s covered Blink 182’s “All the Small Things,” and his songs rest on the border between corny and catchy. But, as much as Rick Ross would like to think otherwise, hip-hop is a genre that often rewards those for being true to themselves. Case in point: Macklemore, who has gained popularity for making songs as emotionally goofy as he is. Allen probably won’t reach that level, but you can’t knock him for sticking to who he is.
