VIDEO: Aloe Blacc “I Need a Dollar”

We all do. Good to see Aloe Blacc getting his propers for “I Need a Dollar,” the first single from his upcoming Good Things (Stones Throw) album and the opening theme song for HBO’s How to Make It In America. Above is the infectious catchy tune’s smooth video; the song at the tail end is “Take Me Back.”

The homie Trent at Beats and Rants keenly compares Blacc’s voice to Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye. Not sure about the latter—maybe early Marvin—but spot on with the former. I could see Blacc killing a remake of “Lovely Day” or “Just the Two of Us” (no Will Smith).

If you’re unfamiliar, look up music from Emanon, Blacc’s Hip-Hop group with producer Exile.
