Labels have searched tirelessly for the next great white rapper ever since Eminem first broke onto the scene in 1999. They failed. But there is a new generation of white emcees ready to breakthrough into the mainstream. Let’s go two years back, Asher Roth was on the rise. He had a very successful mixture to his name, The Greenhouse Effect, and his hit single I Love College was tearing up the charts. On a side note Asher has one of my favorite lines ever on his A Millie Freestyle where he goes “you stupid m***********s don’t get it, it’s pathetic, cause you get to the pros and don’t do s**t like you Reddick”, best line ever. Inevitably Asher Roth started drawing comparisons to Eminem all over the place. He couldn’t go anywhere or do any interview without being asked about the comparisons.

Hoodie Allen has come quite a ways since his debut mixtape, Making Waves all the way back in 2009. I have personally been following him since that release and his second project, Prep Rally, was one of the most underrated tapes of 2010. It had sick samples, catchy hooks and witty verses. I have been looking forward to the third mixtape from the former Google employee to NY star for a while now. So is Leap Year the project that will take Hoodie Allen to the next level? Check out the review below!

This has been one of the strongest weeks for music releases in recent memory. We got new music from Kanye & Jay, Rockie Fresh, Curren$y with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean, Hoodie Allen, H.O.P.E., Huey Mack, Sonny Shotz and Royce da 5’9″. I put up eight tracks because there was absolutely no way I could narrow it down to five, I even had to cut out solid releases from Emilio Rojas and two other releases from Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and Curren$y from the list. Well, hit the jump to stream each track!
