Music Monday: Aloe Blacc
Last night Stones Throw Records launched the video for Aloe Blacc's single "I Need A Dollar". For those who aren't already aware, this is the theme song for one of HBO's newest series "How To Make It In America", which wrapped up its first season last night. Since the show premiered two months ago, Mr. Blacc's career has taken on new life, and in the past few weeks he was featured in the April issue of Complex Magazine and sat down for an interview with GQ. For me, this song is the ultimate hustler's anthem and I think the video, although a bit predictable, did a nice job at showing a raw version of what was to be expected. And there's no denying that sweet outro.
As a grimy bonus courtesy of my dudes Johnny and Jason over at LiveAGL, we have "Grinding for the Dollar" (Redi Remix) available for download here. Enjoy!
