Aloe Blacc

There's been a lot of hype around Mr. Blacc recently, with the majority of it stemming from his single "I Need A Dollar". If you're one of the few that haven't heard it, then stop reading, open a new tab, YouTube it.

I don't necessarily like RnB, but I don't think that's even required; just listen to his voice and relax. Here's his cover of 99 Problems (Jay-Z) in the Live Lounge.



What most people don't know however, is that Aloe is a multi-talented man; he spent the the beginning of his career in the Hip Hop duo Emanon, with producer Exile. Here's their track "The Words". Fair enough it may be different to what you're used to, with a slightly jazz driven guitar beat, but give it a chance.

  2. I don't want to be rude but, the music is very clippy. It seems to cut before he finishes his words.
