Aloe Blacc x Miki x Jaybo – I Need A Dollar (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 30th, 2011 by Hyphen

Aloe’s given us numerous awesome performances of this record (remember this one?), but it’s so classic that it deserves yet another. Between the suit and the drink, he’s got a sort of Bob Harris, “for relaxing times, make it Suntory time” swag going on.

If you missed the time Aloe came to the Sound Session studios and absolutely demolished a live version of “Politician” for us, enjoy:

Aloe Blacc – Politician (Live on Sound Session)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Live Performances, Sound Session, Videos on August 15th, 2010 by Hyphen

Aloe Blacc visited us last week and while here, he blessed us with a live performance of “Politician,” singing soulfully and eloquently about our government officials. The full interview is coming soon, but I wanted y’all to see this video ASAP.  Nailed it in one take…

Be sure to cop Aloe’s Good Things album on Stones Throw, coming out September 28th.  Support good music!

Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme – Loving You Is Killing Me (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on August 1st, 2010 by Hyphen

Aloe’s about to drop one of the best albums of the year with September 28th’s Good Things.  It looks like he might be headed up to Seattle next week, and if so, we’ll see if he can stop by the SNSS studio.  Great to see this longtime MC get some shine with his new project.

Aloe Blacc – Billie Jean (video)

(word to Darius Lovehall)

I’m always amazed when I see/hear how dope Aloe is singing, because I used to bump his older stuff when he was really just killing it on the MC tip.  What an incredible artist…and speaking of which, RIP to the King.
