Hoodie gets the high honour of being featured on Commuter Tunes this week since a) his music has been putting a spring in my step since my Canada’s Wonderland commuting days and b) his Toronto show on Monday was absolutely unbelievable. For those of you who are not familiar, Hoodie is a rapper/compulsive tweeter/former Google employee whose recent accomplishments include having the #1 album on iTunes without being signed to a record label, upgrading Toronto venues twice since the show kept selling out, and being really, really ridiculously good-looking.
You can download his new EP “All American” as well as a couple older mixtapes here. The best part about the old stuff: “It’s fo’ freeee.” (Said like the roommate in Bridesmaids with the drinking worm tattoo. Making my KU 2nd family proud.)
PS: He totally tweeted me yesterday. Okay fine, he tweets everyone. But I like to think that what we have is something special.
I’m a fourth year Integrated Science student at UBC, although I'm currently taking a break from beautiful BC for an International Service Learning Program in Nairobi, Kenya. This blog tells the story of my time at UBC: the good, the stressful, and the awesome. From here.
