Champagne & Pools – Hoodie Allen, Blackbear, & KYLE

What an impeccable line up for this track Champagne & Pools.  This song combines Blackbear’s R&B vocals with Hoodie Allen’s quick witted lyrics, and as if that wasn’t enough we’ve even got an easy-going verse from KYLE to tie it all together. It’s no wonder that the reason they dropped this track is because they’re all about to embark on The Happy Camper Tour in February. Blackbear opens up with a soulful hook about the good life; looking at palm trees next to his pool while sippin’ on champagne. The catchy chorus is immediately followed by a witty verse from Hoodie Allen, full of quotable bars and metaphors.  This combo alone would make a phenomenal track, but right after Blackbear’s second chorus the one and only SuperDuperKyle closes out with one of the best verses I’ve heard from him since his debut studio album release SMYLE.  This song gives you a little sample of three amazing artists who are in the midst of perfecting their sound, and having all released successful projects recently — with the exception of Hoodie, who claims he’s dropping a free project this year — you should definitely give this track a listen.  If this little sampler caught your ear be sure to follow them Soundcloud (Blackbear, Hoodie Allen, KYLE) and Twitter(Blackbear, Hoodie Allen, KYLE).

The Moment – Hoodie Allen & Travis Garland

I can’t say I’m a huge Hoodie Allen fan still — he went through a rough patch creatively and lost a lot of people’s interest — but it sounds like he’s trying to get the ball rolling again for Fall 2015. Where his last release Let It All Work Out was based around a sample of Sampha’s ‘Indecision’, this drop with Travis Garland is leaning towards corny-pop single, which I think was the slippery slope that Hoodie got caught up in last year. It’s definitely not my favorite song by him, but hopefully some of you will be feeling this. Check it out and throw him a follow on Soundcloud if you like what you hear.

Let It All Work Out – Hoodie Allen

Hoodie sounds like he’s finally getting back to his roots. After a long experimental period — which included a shootout between him and Mike Stud — Hoodie is finally settling back in to his comfort zone. The track features some classic sample-based production using Sampha’s 2011 single Indecision, and the end result is an upbeat reminder of what Hoodie is really capable of. Clever bars, lots of metaphors, and organic delivery defined his earlier material, and hopefully this is the kind of stuff we can expect to hear on his free forthcoming project. Show Hoodie Allen some love on Twitter and Soundcloud if you like what you hear, and expect to see more of him very soon.

After dropping his first studio EP last year, Hoodie dropped his first mixtape in awhile. It’s good to hear music like this from him again, he got a little caught up in the whole Pop movement on his last project. Great tape, some really good samples and features, and of course quality lyrics from your boy HA. Enjoy.

Must Be Nice – G-Eazy (Mixtape)

Download Must Be Nice - G-Eazy (Mixtape)

I’ve always been a huge G-Eazy fan, I first heard him on a summer mixtape, and his voice just stood out so much that I had to look into him. He makes the majority of his own beats, which must go into the unique sound that he has. He really gained popularity this last summer after going on Vans Warped Tour, and is now going on The Excellent Adventure Tour with Hoodie Allen. I’m not saying he’s going to be on the radio anytime soon, but he’s definitely on his way to the top of the rap game. Check out the free music, and download the entire Mixtape above. Be eazy.

A new single from Hoodie for y’all today. He couldn’t have come up with a better way to thank his fans, he just finished his not-so All American tour, and is right back at it with new tracks and an epic tour with G-Eazy (which you can find here). I’ve been following this man since his first Mixtape ‘Pep Rally’, and he had/has a huge influence on my making of this site and my overall taste in music. Get the download, enjoy yourself some HA.

New single from Hoodie? I can dig it. Really interesting flow from him this time ar0und, sounding a bit like Drake even. He just finished his not-so All American tour, since he went to the UK to do some shows too. Anyways, enjoy the track, and check out his upcoming tour with G-Eazy here.
