Aloe Blacc Bucks Trend of Hip Hop Opulence

Performing artist Aloe Blacc's album, Good Things, has been climbing the charts in Europe and the U.S. But he's not your typical hip hop or R&B star, as a June 2011 interview in The Independent attests.

Blacc states: "I don't need a lot of things. I limit my consumption to the point people around me call me Mr Frugal. I don't wear jewellery, I bought my Volvo second-hand and my laptop too. I just can't justify [buying new things] any more unless I absolutely have to."
