“I Need A Dollar” could literally be the theme song of the country right now—a melancholy yet honest story of hard times. Some how, it’s comforting because it’s a reminder that it’s not just you who’s broke. Aloe Blacc is a truly talented artist who’s been paying dues on the indie music scene. Now with this song garnering fame as the theme for HBO’s How To Make It In America we hope that more people will open their eyes to the LA native whose been here all this time.
As for the video, Aloe Blacc has such a vintage style to him and nothing shows hard times better than a walk through the ‘hood in the winter. This song is the perfect hustler’s prayer no matter what it is you’re pushin’. As for Aloe, we’re pretty sure things are looking up for you and its well-deserved. Cheers to making it!
