Patients, the word is out on Aloe Blacc, neo-soul man number one. The kind of act that rolls with the tide and talks about the struggles of the times. The one-time rapper in duo Emanonc becomes a full-fledged soul stirrer, on the verge with his sophomore full-length, Good Things.
An Ode For The Financially Strapped
No track in 2010 has managed to tap into the doom and gloom of the era like Aloe Blacc’s bold 21st century depression anthem “I Need A Dollar.” Pegged as the entrance theme to HBO’s How To Make It In America--Blacc’s pleading velvet croon heightens with every hook--a piping hot recession jingle that fuses social consciousness with ‘70s soul reflections. Nothing new, but a modernized rendition of these troubling times, that will seize your heart and billfold (hey, hey).
