One of the first things we noticed about HBO’s new How To Make It In America show wasn’t its connection to Entourage (executive producers like Marky Mark) or the relative absurdity of Luis Guzman’s Rasta Monsta line. It was Aloe Blacc‘s theme song, a slice of throwback soul that pretty much sums up an typical day at self-titled‘s scrappy little office. It also suggests that the underground hip-hop vet may have a second life as ‘the next Sharon Jones’ when his Truth & Soul-produced Good Things LP drops later this year.
