Who Should Sign Him: Atlantic Records

Truth be told, after turning online support into the number one album on iTunes and millions of YouTube views on his own steam, Hoodie might not need big label help. But, if the All-American did decide to take the money and run with his pop flow, Atlantic would probably be a good fit. The label always gets knocked for turning applauded artists like Wiz, Lupe and Bobby Ray into radio stars. Yet, if they took on someone who’s already leaning in that direction, all they’d essentially need to do is plug in their promo, let the Long Island kid do his thing and watch the hits pile up. — Beware
