Aloe Blacc
I Need A Dollar (Chrome Wu-Tang Remix)

Aloe Blacc's faultless/timeless tune I Need A Dollar is currently sitting near the pointy end of The Best Songs Ever/2010 list. It's also a mainstayer on the essential "Mack Some Honeyz Playlist".

Given the fairly stripped back nature of the vocals it's no surprise the song has attracted shit re-workings from every 12-year old bedroom producer with a cracked version of Abelton.

But on the flipside there's this brilliant remix by Germanian DJ-producer-chromer Chrome, who brings together Aloe's sexxy larynx with unmistakable stab-your-face-off rawness of Wu-Tang's 1994 classic C.R.E.A.M.

Bonus: Aloe recording a live studio version of the original:



In addition to being the theme song for the HBO series How To Make It In America (New York + Entourage + more bros + more snobs + FASHION!), I Need A Dollar will also feature on Aloe's new album Good Things, which is due to be released on September 28. Pre-orders are available NOW via Stones Throw.

Also available in the Stones Throw store - vinyl/mp3 versions of I Need A Dollar and the album's second single Femme Fatale.
