Today’s song of the day is Goodie Mob’s performance on “The Voice” this past Tuesday, of their first single, “Fight To Win” with all four of them back together again after 13 years!!! I wanted to share it the other day, but it wasn’t available online yet. I really like the song, but I do wish that the other guys were utilized more. It’s more or less a Cee-Lo song, which is fine, I love Cee-lo, but this is a Goodie Mob song and I want to hear all of them, after them being absent for so long. Hopefully the full album “Age Against The Machine” will have a lot more Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp. What do you think of the new song?
Goodie Mob reunited tonight on The Voice after a 13 year hiatus!!! It was great to see them all back together again. The new song is called “Fight To Win” off of their upcoming new album “Age Against The Machine”. The Voice doesn’t seem like quite the right platform for Goodie Mob and it seemed a lot more like just a Cee-Lo song. None of the other guys, T-Mo, Khujo or Big Gipp really rapped in the performance. I hope the new album incorporates the rest of them much more. I wanted to post the new song, but it’s not available online yet, so I thought I’d share my favorite of their old songs “Black Ice” featuring OutKast. OutKast and Goodie Mob are a part of the legendary Southern Rap clique “The Dungeon Family” and now that Goodie Mob is back together, it is making me long all the more to see OutKast back together. In the mean time I can’t wait to hear the new Goodie Mob album. Now I’m sure many of you are a little unfamiliar with Goodie Mob, but I can tell you they were an awesome and important part of the Southern Rap movement in the 90s. So tell me, what you really know about the Dirty South?
So I’ve been meaning to share this song for a while now, since I did my top 5 Rappers of all time countdown, a few weeks back. If you don’t already know, The Dungeon Family is a supergroup that consists of OutKast, Goodie Mob, Sleepy Brown and many other awesome southern Rappers and Producers. This group of Rappers, Singers and Producers are all legends in their own right. They formed back in the early 90s and changed the face of southern Rap as well as music in general. The most notable members from The Dungeon Family are of course, Andre 3000 and Big Boi of OutKast and Cee-Lo of Goodie Mob, who is now a coach of the hit TV show, The Voice. They have numerous awards between them, including many Grammys. I’m not sure how many, but I’m sure its at least a dozen, including one for Album of the Year in 2004 for OutKast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below”. The song of the day, “Trans DF Express” is the single from their awesome collaborative album, “Even In Darkness” that came out just over 10 years ago, back in 2001. So grab your ticket and hop on the Trans DF Express!!!
I’ve been wanting to share this song “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley for a few weeks now, but have had lot’s of other stuff to share. This song was named the #1 song of the 2000’s by Rolling stone a couple years back. They definitely deserve it too. I love Gnarls Barkley and especially Cee-Lo, solo and with his original group, Goodie Mob, who is a part of a clic along with OutKast, Sleepy Brown and others, called the Dungeon Family. They are all so talented and original!!! Are you a Dungeon Family fan? I may have to share one of their songs next. I just might!!!
