LA’s own Aloe Blacc blowing up like you thought he would. The dude has managed to stay under the radar for quite a while but with his newest song “I Need A Dollar” taking stage as the intro for HBO’s newest show “How to make it in America” things are looking good. Did I mention his upcoming album is titled “Good Things”? Back in the day he was an MC in an indie rap group called Emanon and later on recorded “I Love USC (And I Hate UCLA)”. Check out his catalogue on Stones Throw Records.
