Free Tune - Aloe Blacc "I Need a Dollar" Killabits Vs Paranoid Androidz ReRub

If you're hurting for a good dose of Soul, look no farther, I've got what you need! The Paranoid Androidz take on the Killabits' Remix of Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" and give it a proper rubbing. Aloe Blacc is an American Soul singer, rapper, and musician. His first album, entitled Shine Through, was released by Stones Throw Records in 2006. He began his career in 1995 as an MC in an indie Rap group called Emanon. By the late 90's, Blacc was a "stow away" on a Lootpack tour in Europe. His music contains elements of jazz, R&B, Soul, and Hip Hop, all blended together with excellence. He recorded a cover version of the John Legend song "Ordinary People" entitled "Gente Ordinaria" which was widely popular. Aloe Blacc's hit single "I Need a Dollar" is the intro song for the HBO show "How to Make it in America" and has been remixed many times over. He is also working on a new album entitled "Good Things" set to be released in just a few days on September 14th. The Killabits are a Dub, Electro and Drum & Bass act out of Toronto Canada. They put a Dubstep twist on Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" and now the boys from Paranoid Androidz have gone and made into a Breakbeat/Dubstep crossover. The tune starts off with the killer piano from the original and then animated D&B-esque breaks kick things into gear. The first breakdown drops on Aloe's awesome vocals and more of that deep piano. The pained bassline fits perfectly with the vocals then switching it up for some wobble to keep it interesting. Who doesn't need a dollar right now?
