Aloe Blacc + Tutu Sweeney and the Brothers Band

He may have just scored his first international hit with the single "I Need a Dollar," but Los Angeles native Aloe Blacc is by no means wet behind the ears. The MC-turned-soul-crooner has been releasing music for almost a decade, originally as part of the hip-hop duo Emanon, consisting of himself and celebrated underground beatsmith Exile. Blacc has indeed been a rolling stone over the years, infusing his work with hip-hop, R&B and various Latin stylings. His most recent effort, 2010's Good Things, is cut from the fabric of classic soul: honest, alluring and brimming with social critique.
