People are going crazy over the Jewish hip-hop artist, Hoodie Allen. Back in August, when Allen announced he was releasing his first full-length album, fans were joyous and many pre-ordered the album. “People Keep Talking” will be released on Oct. 14, along with his tour starting on Oct. 3.

The tour will come to Cincinnati on Nov. 3 at Bogarts. Tickets right now are selling for $35. Chiddy Bang will make an appearance during Allen’s performance.

“I’m considering going to Hoodie Allen’s concert, even though its on a school night. I’m sure his new album will be better than his previous album, ‘All American,’” sophomore Noah Stern said.

Steven Markowitz, the man behind Allen, is set to release 14 tracks on his upcoming album. Allen has already debuted four tracks on iTunes, YouTube, and SoundCloud.

The four tracks, “Movie,” “Dumb For You,” “Act My Age” and “Show Me What You’re Made Of” are already popular hits among the fans. Allen started working on the album in Aug. 2012, and completed it around early April of this year. He launched the song “Show Me What You’re Made Of” in late May.

“My new favorite song by Hoodie Allen is “Act My Age,” I just love the beat to it,” junior Sam Myers said.

In one of Allen’s YouTube videos, he explained the reason behind the album title ‘People Keep Talking.’ People are talking about Allen and his work, and he is just doing his own thing.
