When you listen to most of the lyrics of Steven Markowitz, AKA Hoodie Allen you would honestly believe that he is a Brooklynite. This independent American hip-hop artist, singer, and rapper from Plainview, New York, U.S. ‘Make it Home’ Single just made it on the iTunes charts as #10! “Highest I’ve ever had a single song up there…” he said on his facebook page.
Yet, I personally find the lyrics of his song ‘ No Faith In Brooklyn’ as catchy as his nickname Hoodie. It really does stick on your mind and bring you home to the Brooklyn experience.
His, is not a sudden leap to success but a gradual climb of hard work and perspiration. While working at Google, his off-work hours were spent writing songs, answering fan emails, and scheduling concerts until 2 or 3 AM.
Tonight his LIVE performance is at Oregon State University
