Time Out says
Long Island–raised Steven Markowitz is a frat boy turned Google employee turned rapper who releases tunes under the moniker Hoodie Allen. The cut of this 23-year-old's jib is decidedly glossy, hipster hip-hop, with a side of pop that comes in somewhere between Chiddy Bang, Childish Gambino and Mac Miller. Playing at the El Rey in March, Allen will be pulling from his back catalog of three mixtapes and two albums, including last year's All American.
