The finale to HBO’s original series, http://freshnessmag.com/2010/02/11/how-to-make-it-in-america-episode-1/”>How to Make in America, just aired on Sunday night, and the theme song has been getting some well-deserved attention from an artist whose own career mirrors the the plot line of the story. In the show two friends hustle and scrap for crack at success selling clothes, while Aloe Blacc has been working towards getting some love for his smooth soul tracks like the show’s theme. “I Need a Dollar” opens each episode, and it’s heavy piano and horn chops paint the setting of a dreary New York quite well. Besides Blacc, fellow musician Kid CuDihttp://freshnessmag.com/2010/03/09/how-to-make-it-in-america-hustle-stories-kid-cudi-video/”> makes frequent cameos in the show as a good friend of the two friends. This Kahlil Joseph-directed video depicts a grim New York story that follows a split screen story to a frenzied conclusion. Keep checking Freshness for more from Aloe Blacc.
