Aloe Blacc Talks Music, Poverty & Politics (Video)

Some time prior to his gig at London’s Jazz Cafe last night, Aloe Blacc recently stopped for a chat with Code Emphasis to talk music, poverty, politics and his interest in teaching, before giving a live performance of ‘Politician’ from his latest album Good Things – out now via Stones Throw Records.

“I think it’s important for government to step in and make a stand for the people. Everybody who’s anybody deserves food, clothing and shelter and education – and as long as those necessities are met, then everything will be fine.

“I think rich can be rich but the poor can’t be so poor that they can’t live – it’s just not fair.”
