Hoodie Allen Goes Hitchhiking With Disastrous Results In His “Dumb For You” Video: Watch

New York-based rapper Hoodie Allen broke big in 2012 when his independently-released debut EP All American landed at number 10 on the Billboard 200. Expect even bigger things from his debut LP People Keep Talking (due October 14) if the success of buzz tracks/singles “Movie” and “Dumb For You” are any indication. The latter reached number one on the iTunes hip-hop/R&B chart earlier today (September 9) and has huge crossover potential.

A half-sung/half-rapped tune about falling in love with all the wrong people, “Dumb For You” is Steven Markowitz‘s (his real name) catchiest offering yet. It has hooks to burn (note the killer guitar riff) and an instantly hummable chorus. The video also dropped today and it finds the 26-year-old hitchhiking with a bunch of crazy people. Watch Hoodie take the road-trip from hell up top.
