Here’s the lowdown: A 21 year old rapper from Long Island, New York. Name: Hoodie Allen. Samples Marina & The Diamonds “I Am Not A Robot.” Just the pure essence of the song is enough to give you chills – and you wanna know why? The very striking yet subtle resemblance to that of Chiddy Bang’s. I’m not the first one to recognize this similarity, and I have to admit, having read it in other good music blogs has influenced my initial opinion on Hoodie Allen. But there’s certainly no denying this guy’s great approach and rapping. Hoodie Allen is one badass white kid.
