Critically acclaimed recording artists Goodie Mob are set to reintroduce themselves to hip-hop purists with their fourth and highly anticipated new album Age Against the Machine, scheduled for release on August 27, 2013.
After a 14-year hiatus, Grammy Award winning artist CeeLo Green reunites with his original Atlanta rap group, Goodie Mob and his Goodiebrothers Big Gipp, Khujo, and T-Mo, to remind naysayers of the group’s lauded history as rap royalty of the “Dirty South.” To quell the anticipation for new music before the album’s release date, Goodie Mob will unleash their new radio single “Special Education” featuring Janelle Monae as well as the street single “Pinstripes” featuring T.I. in coming weeks.
“Special Education” is already receiving early accolades.
“The ATLiens have seen fit to raise total pandemonium in the form of the single ‘Special Education’, which takes the Aquemini blueprint a step farther, wedding industrial crunch to funk with surprisingly harmonious results,” says Pitchfork.
Billboard exclaims, “The project is impressively fluid and cohesive.”
In February, the collective surprised fans and joined fellow member CeeLo Green onstage during his Las Vegas residency show, “CeeLo Green is Loberace,” at Planet Hollywood and performed classics from their arsenal of three Gold-Certified albums including songs “Soul Food” and “They Don’t Dance No Mo.’” In addition, the group is currently featured in a television commercial campaign for the Las Vegas Tourism Board, which is in rotation now and will air nationally throughout the rest of the year.
Last year, Goodie Mob released the single “Fight to Win,” an anthem of liberation, motivation, and determination, which they premiered on NBC’s hit show The Voice and performed at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Furthermore, the track was used as the official theme song for the 2012 NBA Playoffs and was prominently featured in the campaign surrounding the release of the SamsungGalaxy SIII.
SFPL is glad to see the super group back in action! Welcome back fellas!
