Known most recently for finishing up the Boys of Zummer tour with Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa, Hoodie Allen is absolutely killing it nowadays, and that’s why he is this week’s #MCM at Trendom! Here are my top 5 reasons why he should be yours, too.
1. He knows how to write.
Possibly best known for his song ‘No Interruption,’ he knows how to write a both catchy and clever song. Honestly, this song will get you dancing, but the lyrics are funny and make you think.
2. He’s goofy and doesn’t take himself too seriously.
Also shown through a lot of his lyrics, he’s just a goofy guy. It makes him seem a lot less distant than some other rappers and singers who seem so other-worldly that they come off as completely unattainable. While he’s still has a relatively small but growing following, he’s sticking to his down-to-earth ways, keeping the goofball attitude the whole way.
3. He’s dedicated to his fans.
He really appreciates all the support and love he gets from his fans, and recently released music for free, just for them, through his fan club email. He’s all about sharing and appreciating music, and he’s glad to spread his music to as many people as he can!
4. He’s really smart.
Before hitting the rap scene, he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in marketing and finance, and even worked for Google for a while before leaving to pursue his dream of performing live and making music full time.
5. He’s got an amazing smile.
Just look at those pearly whites!
