Up until the night of the 16th of June I have attended quite a few events during the year. On that night though I was surprised by an artist that I had heard virtually nothing about except for one of his random but highly successful songs “I Need A Dollar.” The stage presence was electrifying, taking over the crowd and having them doing everything except faint and throw panties on the stage (I did see a woman up front sweating real hard though). Rewind to the interview before the show. Aloe Blacc was a cool mellow individual and during our conversation it was evident that he was a man passionate about his career. Also he was passionate about not working at a desk job again. Between interpreting his thoughts into rhymes and using his words as motivation for his listeners to sit back and think about what he’s presenting, Aloe is just a man using his career to do more than just music. People meet Mr. Aloe Blacc.
You’ve done a lot of projects over the years and still creating till this day. What do you credit to your longevity?
I think…well the credit to my longevity is having to pay rent. Because right now I’m making my living off of music. Basically I’m trying to avoid working behind a desk. Cause I did that for some time and I hated it. As long as I have the blessings of some songs coming to me, I’m gonna grab them and put them out.
