Aloe Blacc: He needed a dollar, he probably got one, he probably got lots, which is fine by us

Relative newcomer Aloe Blacc is completely not a newcomer! He’s been releasing music since 1995 when he was part of rap duo Emanon with producer Exile. Emanon released 6 albums in total and even toured Europe and America. Aloe (real name Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins III… WE KNOW!) took time out from Emanon to go to uni on a scholarship to study Psycho-Linguistics and Communication.

In 2003 Aloe went on his solo career, signing to Stones Throw Records and releasing an EP. His first album came out three years later in 2006 and then in 2010 he signed to Epic Records and released his second record Shine Through and his first UK single I Need A Dollar, also the theme tune for HBO show How To Make It In America. Blacc’s future is exciting, we can’t wait to see it unfurl…
