This track is a modern day classic. After seeing Aloe Blacc perform this song last year at the Lee Fields album launch in Brooklyn, i've been waiting patiently to hear it in its entirety. Then I just found out it has been used for the intro theme song for HBO's new series 'How To Make It In America'!
It feels good that people are finally recognizing Aloe's immense talent as a singer/songwriter/MC, and this track proves all that. Recorded at the Truth and Soul studios - a few blocks away from my old apartment in Williamsburg - it definitely has that 70's New York feel, but with a modern touch. Check it out below.
