Aloe Blacc’s I Need A Dollar just got selected as the How to Make it in America theme song. That’s a real good look for the Floss Angeles native – and a little ironic, considering that the show takes place in Manhattan. Then again, I Need a Dollar has such a classic sound built into it, your kids might just dust off your old iPod and get down with that, ‘grown folks music’ in a few years time. Plus a longing for money is a universal language, spoken on both coasts.

This is the first track off his upcoming Good Things project. You can get with the mixtape version here or throw down a buck on the Stones Throw Counter.

So, about the show – I checked for it on YouTube & I hope that they keep posting episodes after they air. It looks like they might, since they’re trying to leverage their popularity and transition into a legit destination for premium, hi-definition entertainment. Considering that Google is cutting cake slices for a brand new, proof-of-concept hi-bandwidth project, this seems inevitable. Anyway the show is the best of 2010 by far. Young actors, doing fun, young things in New York City, chasing dreams & skirts with not a SINGLE Cosmopolitan in sight! Watch How to Make it in America here.
