Goodie Mob

Biography

Goodie Mob was a hip-hop/rap group based in Atlanta, Georgia that formed in 1991 and currently consists of members Cee-Lo Green, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp. The group's name acts as a double backronym. As explained on the track "Fighting" on Soul Food, Goodie Mob means "The Good Die Mostly Over Bullshit".

All four members were born in Atlanta, and the group is based there with the rest of the Dungeon Family, a collective which includes OutKast and Parental Advisory (P.A.). Goodie was first heard featured on several songs from OutKast's first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

Cee-Lo was the most visible member of the group prior to his departure in 2000 (among other projects, he is now recording in collaboration with DJ Danger Mouse as Gnarls Barkley), while Big Gipp has made several rounds on other Dungeon Family members' albums, and T-Mo and Khujo form a duo within the group called The Lumberjacks.

It was reported that all four Goodie Mob members are back on good terms and have reentered the studio to release a brand new album. Cee-Lo and Big Gipp both referenced this in multiple interviews. The four members appeared on stage together on October 1, 2006 following a Gnarls Barkley show, stating that they were back together and on good terms. Goodie Mob officially announced the group's reunion November 19, 2007 on Atlanta's V-103 radio station.

On August 19, 2008 all four members performed on stage together unannounced at The Tabernacle in Atlanta during a free Nelly concert. On September 19, 2009 the Goodie Mob performed for the first official "reunion concert" at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia. The band was also set to play with all the original members at the Smoke Out festival in San Bernardino, CA on October 23, 2009.

As of 2011, Goodie Mob has begun to focus on recording their new album. Cee-Lo spoke with MTV News and provided some updates on his upcoming projects. Now that he’s released his solo LP The Lady Killer, Cee-Lo says he’s at work on the long rumored Goodie Mob reunion album with Khujo, T-Mo & Big Gipp. The Dungeon Family member says that the group has recorded about 10 songs already and they’re just getting started.

On March 12, 2011 the Goodie Mob performed "Get Rich to This" in Las Vegas, Nevada for part of the Red Bull Soundclash concert that featured Cee Lo.On April 28, 2011 Cee-Lo brought out Goodie Mob during his performance at Sunfest in West Palm Beach, Florida. They performed four songs together including "Black Ice (Sky High)", "Cell Therapy", and "Soul Food".
