    correct.

  • RD

    with that said.. this is nice

  • Amy Gutmann

    This album is SO SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. Beats are tight, lyrics are nice, artwork is fresh. Moves cannot be stopped. The boss of bagels and Obey City have returned

  • adam

    this mixtape is legit. beats are real chill and some lines are crazy

  • Big1

  • blake p

  • TonyB

    TIGHT!!!!

  • AdamR

    The next big thing...back to the basics of straight quality hip-hop. These dudes are the real deal.

  • mark herburger

    hoodie allen is the best rap to come out of long island in a really long time. steve witz is an exceptional writer, with a professional sounding voice, who not only understands lyricism but overall song structure. his songs are dense with musicianship and professionalism.

  • rapmagik

    no pretense, all talent. hoodie allen is the real ish

  • Beej

    One word: FIRE

  • Derrik

    damn this shit right here is dope as fuck! Found out they released a EP on iTunes called The Bagels & Beats. P&P had a song a while back off of it called Back To The 50's and its very nice.

  • wordup

    Hoodie allen make the whole world go round

  • Lena

    Hoodie Allen is the new face of up and coming hip-hip. I've known these guys' music since they first hit the scene a few years ago. This mixtape is amazing, its a fabulous new take on classic hip-hop. Their beats are fresh, their lyrics resonate with everyone, and its a needed fresh face in the industry. This is a very mature take on their older stuff.
    If you haven't gotten their mix tape, download it immediately! You don't want to miss out on this amazing music. And if you want, download their old mix tape on iTunes, Bagels and Beats EP. Its also really good.
    The bottom line is that Hoodie Allen is a great new duo that is about to take the music scene by storm, so get on the bus before you get left behind.

  • paul

    turn this city around is def my favorite song... cant get it out of my head

  • AdubC

    LOL @ the Mike Waxx jab! Why isn't illroots in the NMC?!

  • Scott

    I've known Steve Witz since before the internet, and the quality of this mixtape doesn't surprise me one bit. awesome from start to finish, high quality stuff. anyone that's on here and likes what they hear should do what they can to spread the Hoodie Allen word

  • http://ilovemakonnen.com Emperor Makonnen

    I love hoodie allen! I am on my mobile and can't express everything I want to say yet but for now I will tell you that "Making Waves" is the best project of music to come out this year!

  • http://illroots.com mikewaxx

    oh its on.

  • Ben

    Hoodie Allen is this best thing to come out of Long Island since Billy Joel.. These kids have an amount of talent that is unfathomable to a good amount of big name artists out there, let alone college seniors.. Everyone needs to keep up with these guys because they are about to blow up, for real. This mixtape is tight. Spread the word.. HOODIE FUCKIN ALLEN!!!

  • rick

    Very Classic. Amazing

  • Jen

    this mixtape is awesome. hoodie allen is on fire

  • Curtis Hampton

    must be friends commenting cause shit is wack

  • PP Fresh

    obey city's beats are mind blowing, topped with verses by witz; WATCH OUT

  • Rob

    This mixtape is genius. Making Waves takes you on a ride in an ocean of raw talent, intense passion and pertinent social musings. The project gives us everything we could imagine and more. There is something for everyone from the night club hit that is "Turn the City Around" to the head bobbing title track, "Making Waves" to the inspirational and uplifting final track that crashes in, "Look Up." The album is funny, smart, catchy, and confident. In "Making Waves," Hoodie Allen has a 'tsunami' to be proud of.

  • Ayble

    SICKNESS!!!

  • Curtis Hampton

    must be cum in my ears cuz this shit is wack

  • purp

    I agree this is wacksauce

  • Lemont

    Curtis... you suspect cum in your ears??

    Hmm, I'm gonna leave it at that.

    Anyway... dope tracks, for sure! Let the hating begin, haha.

  • matt

    i think its dope, cool songs...the hate also feels compelled to come out when someones getting props

  • Arsonist

    Shit is OFFICIAL. Period.

  • B

    Hoodie Allen is the TRUTH in a game diluted with fakers

  • Amit

  • Zach

    Shit's dope.

  • http://upenn.edu amy gutmann’s left tit

    dis ma shit! big ups to my boy steve witz!!

  • shawn

    Yo Hoodie Allen. I came across this mixtape through word of mouth, and I gotta say you guys are making some real quality music 'round here. I'm loving that Passin Me By remix, yall brought it back for sure. And dude Illustrate kills that track. Make more music!

  • newby

  • Dean

    Passin' Me By is the joint. shit's blowin' up my iTunes playlist count...keep it up Hoodie

  • Jenna

  • blazer

    Ya I like that passin me by track too... I'll cop.

  • needahoodie

    Turn the City around is turning Hoodie Allen into the next big thing. Keep the sick ish comin kid

  • ca$h

    i gotta give it up to my boys. sam (obey city) is always a monster w these beats. dude is incredibly talented and steve comes thru and laces some dope vocals. im not gonna blow it out of proportion, but if you havent d/l'd this yet, it would definitely be in your best interest to do so.

  • DayO

    wow you cats will co-sign ANYTHING with a cartoon cover!
    this shit is REGULAR.

  • bummer

    no we co-sign dope music. That's why this post gets love. and the posts with Gucci, 50 Cent, & Birdshit get no co-signs.

  • Curtis Hampton

    lmao at lemon taking my name clown ass fuck
    regardless shit is horrible
    white boy suburb music ur no ASHER

  • Raw

    Wack Glad they streamed it so I didnt have to waist my time with the DL. Just my opinion.. Dont hate! All these people must know these clowns.
    typical white rappers...worth a one time listen I guess

  • bummer

    @ Raw. What is a typical white rapper? is that like a typical black rapper that says nigga every 3 words and talks about how rich they are and how they drive bentleys and how they sell crack in the "trap"

  • wordup

    best rap on the scene since mc chris.

  • Petey Jonez

    cottt dayummm this shit is heatttt. why cant dudes like this blow up? instead of worthless ass dudes

  • Adam

    They straight killed it on this mix tape

  • Alexandria

    i have this mix tape on repeat! this is hott

  • mike

    this mix tape sick, the lyrics are dope and the beats are unreal.

  • Fresh

    Curtis Hampton you only continue that your opinion has little to no value. You're no asher? I don't know who the fuck would want to aim to be Asher. Keep bumping that Gucci Man and Hurricane Chris bro!

    Curtis Hampton best music reviewer ever?

    "Did someone cum in my ears, cuz this is wack"

    Expect more gems like this

  • A

    who the fuck is hoodie allen? this shit is hot.

  • D. $cience

    LOL @ commenters with normal names giving this mixtape props. This mixtape sounds like Asleep In The Bread Aisle with a rapper tryin' to sound like a white Wale. Sorry, but this is just average.

  • Roofio

    Hoodie Allen is the next big thing. They're sickkkk

  • DayO

    "SHIT DONT MAKE NO SENSE,
    I DONT GET WHY GARBAGE IS PREFERRED OVER DOPENESS."
    this is what comes to mind when i listen to this, and then look at the comments.

  • underground rap enthusiast

    If these guys are the next big thing remind me to stop listening to rap. This is fucking hipster rap. and I think they stole the name hoodie allen from some other white underground rapper. so sad what long island people consider good

  • kickthatshit

    hoodie allen is awesome. who the fuck cares if its a white rapper. hes awesome and so are the beats.

  • Abnormal John

    To "D. $cience"... wtf is your point about "commenters with normal names " ? ?

    Does someone with an "abnormal" name have a more valid opinion? I mean, you're entitled to thinking what you want about the mixtape... but don't come with stupid shit like "commenters with normal names".

    Personally, I think the album is well-done... creative, great hooks, nice beats. And definitely not your typical lazy mainstream bullshit. I think people should appreciate the creativity. Peace

  • D. $cience

    To Abnormal John:

    It was supposed to be a joke. I visit this blog frequently and never have I seen so many names such as Alexandria, Adam, Mike, Jenna, etc. commenting on how "awesome" this mixtape is and how Hoodie Allen is the "next big thing". This is easily an attempt to get their name out, which isn't bad, but the music is garbage.

    And I'll say it again...this is on some Asher Roth, dorky white rapper sh**. At least make dorky white rapper sh** well executed. Sheesh, get a life "Abnormal John".

  • Fresh

    Abnormal John isn't racist at all

  • Fresh

    Errr D. Science*

  • Abnormal John

    D. $cience... you're totally right. It's probably not possible that rapper Steve Witz, a college student with a HUGE MySpace fan base (that includes people of all races and ethnicities) , could have asked those fans (with normal names) to drop by this blog for the first time to leave some love.

    And I'm sure all the paid downloads and reviews that their Bagels & Beats EP received on iTunes (along with 42 out of 45 ratings being 5 Stars), were done by Steve himself.

    Dorky white rappers do this all the time. (It's bad enough that their dorky, but WHITE!? How terrible.)

    Seriously, though... I found out about these guys through MySpace, and they communicate with their fans constantly, and are always looking for feedback. And the overwhelming majority of that feedback is positive. All people aren't gonna like it, but to call it "dorky white rapper shit", you show yourself to be a big asshole. Sorry man, you know that's the truth.

    Way to point out skin color as it relates to music. Dickhead.

    Divided we fall...

  • http://www.beatroyalty.com Beat Royalty

    We produced a track on this mixtape (Figure It Out)... Steve is easily one of the most talented emcees we've ever worked with. No joke.

    His freestyles in the studio would destroy most people's best written material.

    100% raw talent, cool guy to work with, and definitely has a long future in the business. Beyond being a dope rapper with great tone, he's a terrific songwriter. Complete package.

    Download the mixtape, put it on your iPod, and LISTEN to what he has to say. If you can't feel the music, that's too bad.

    One Love,

    Beat Royalty

  • D. $cience

    To Abnormal John (again):

    I don't know what you're mad at. I'm not making this a racial issue, nor am I knocking being a dork. I'm a dorky black dude, and I respect & love all sorts of hip hop. To call me a dickhead and an asshole is really unnecessary. I just compared "Making Waves" to "Asleep In The Bread Aisle", which did nothing for me. I actually downloaded "Making Waves" and gave it a chance, cracked a joke on it, no big deal. And hey, if you're feeling this hard, I'm not calling your rap fandom into question. (Oh, BTW, there is a couple of nice tracks on here, like "Chasing My Dream", "Making Waves", & "Daydreamin'") So don't call me names because I don't think this is some incredible sh**.

    Just Sayin'.

  • Abnormal John

    Fair enough, D, Science... and I wasn't calling you names because of your like or dislike of the record... I just took issue with what I felt was an out of the line racial comment.

    I'm actually a dorky Mexican myself. lol

    I'm glad you replied, D. $cience... and thanks for being classy. That was dope of you, and I respect your opinion.

    Peace

  • ca$h

    Outside of this mixtape, looking outside hip hop and just looking at the art of music, you ass hats need to stop comparing artist A to artist B ALL THE TIME. Its sickening, of course in hip hop where it was once preached to the masses (by Public Enemy, KRS-One etc) to step out and be yourself, that no new act can drop without catching comparisons (valid or not). 99.9% of the shit that drops on this site comes from an artist in America, probably likes to wear clothes he thinks are dope(some talk about this topic, some dont), chances are that if over 21 that the artist drinks, everyones been through some shit that has changed their life, but that doesnt mean every artist has to compare to someone just bc there are similarities. LOOK AT THE DAMN DIFFERENCES!
