Top of the World
No Faith in Brooklyn (feat. Jhameel)
Ain't Gotta Work
Best known for mixtapes like Pep Rally and Leap Year, Hoodie Allen is part of a new generation of pop-rappers, trafficking in squeaky flows, self-deprecating humor, contemporary fashion, and songs for the (young) ladies. Like Mac Miller, Asher Roth, and Kosha Dillz, his approachability is key to his style; he even promises to personally call every single person who buys his album. Unlike his previous material, All American features no samples, with all the beats built from scratch by Hoodie and his longtime collaborator, producer RJF. It's undeniably catchy and tailor-made for crossover radio and/or house parties. Highlights include "No Faith in Brooklyn," "Eighteen Cool," "Top of the World," and "Lucky Man."
