Penn alumnus and campus favorite Hoodie Allen is set to go on tour this fall with California-based rapper G-Eazy. Allen’s recent #1 Album, “All-American” has met country-wide support and he is ready to share his music with all of his fans (at Penn and otherwise). The “Excellent Adventure Tour” kicks off in Ohio this September and runs throughout the month until it ends in Philly at our very own Trocadero Theatre.
Given the tour title’s movie allusion, it looks like it’s going to be a month long party-on-wheels with the music set including songs from All-American and G-Eazy’s six mix tapes.
As we try to place their styles (and how they decided to come together for their tour!) we drew a few parallels. Both artists love sampling music from other musicians and both play with a distinct eclectic sound– a cross between Asher Roth and Drake, with an added indie vibe.
It is definitely a show worth watching. Don’t forget to head on over to the Trocadero Theatre on September 30th or buy your tickets in advance! Listen to our personal faves of G-Eazy and Hoodie Allen and let us in on your favorites in the comments section below.
