Before Aloe Blacc was “The Man” he was one of the men in the hip-hop duo Emanon. Together with producer Exile since the mid-90s, they created some great music and continued to work on each others projects when on hiatus. They were residing in the Los Angeles underground scene much like the A-Team. You couldn’t attend a hip-hop show without coming in contact with Aloe. He was everywhere. Check out their ode to Gangstarr’s “Love Sick” from the album The Waiting Room.
THE DELLS – LOVE IS BLUE / I CAN SING A RAINBOW
On a recent digging escapade in Northern Miss, I came up on The Dells Love is Blue album, the album is pretty dope front to back. It starts off with the often sampled title track, also referred to as “I Can Sing a Rainbow”. It has been used by everyone from Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, 9th Wonder, Blu & Exile, and more. Enjoy some hip-hop history and get some soulful experience while you’re at it.
