NEW ARTIST: Hoodie Allen – You Are Not A Robot (Music Video)
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday night at 8PM sharp, TheMaskedGorilla.com will be bringing you a brand new artist. Stay tuned, The Masked Gorilla is “The Next Generation Of Hip-Hop!”.
Hoodie Allen, a Long Island native, has been making a considerable amount of noise since the release of his ‘Pep Rally’ mixtape, which was released this past September. The eleven track tape featured sample heavy songs, including “You Are Not A Robot”. That song, on Youtube, has received over 600,000 views since it’s initial release last March.
With all the attention “You Are Not A Robot” received, it was chosen to be made into Hoodie’s first ever music video. Released only two days ago, the music video already has 20,000 views. Featuring a bunch of pint-sized robots, the music video was created with an overall good idea, but is terribly under-produced for a song of this magnitude.
Wouldn’t it be cool to see Hoodie link up with someone like, Rex Arrow Films, the guy who does Mac Miller’s music videos? Those two were speaking on Twitter a few weeks back, so that collaboration might be coming sooner than later.
For now, enjoy the above music video for “You Are Not A Robot”, because overall it is not that bad for a debut music video. You can download Hoodie’s ‘Pep Rally’ mixtape right here, and keep up with Hoodie on Facebook right here.
