“I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.”
If you read the blog with any consistency at all, or maybe even not consistently, you likely know that I’m a big Chiddy Bang fan. So if some more music comes my way that reminds me of Chiddy Bang, it is highly probably that I’ll like it. And along came Hoodie Allen. It’s funny…he starts the rhymes sounding like Chiddy, he thanks Marina for the song (Chiddy thanks Xaphoon Jones for the beat in almost every song), we’ve got the high pitched sample (reminds me of “All Things Go” by Chiddy Bang)…this really is a similar match. It’s like playing Photohunt (one of my favorite pasttimes. Unashamed.), you’re looking for the differences, but they’re very subtle.
All this being said, I just went back and read the message that Hoodie Allen included when they sent me this track. Sure enough, they said…”You seem to be a big fan of Chiddy Bang and this track has garnered some favorable similarities in opinion.” Well well, looks like my ideas aren’t so original after all. Ah well, I digress.
Good song. Cool artwork (credit to Matthew Buck). Great rapping from a white kid. Sounds like my cup of tea.
Summary: Hoodie Allen. 21 year old rapper from Long Island, NY. Sampes Marina & The Diamonds “I Am Not A Robot.” Puts it in the blender and out pours a bass-heavy summer jam.
