Goodie Mob announce first album in 10 years, promise "Public Enemy on acid"

Dungeon Family crew Goodie Mob have dropped further details about their forthcoming fifth album. 

Goodie Mob (an acronym for Good Mostly Die Over Bullshit) were, Outkast aside, the principal figureheads in Atlanta hip-hop’s thrilling mid-1990s purple patch. Like their more successful contemporaries, the group – Cee-Lo Green, Khujo, T-Mo, and Big Gipp – specialised in tricked-out, musically ambitious Dirty South gospel-rap, typically produced in association wikth local production unit Organized Noize. 1995 debut Soul Food remains their opus, with their last album as a full ensemble being 1999’s World Party (although a Cee-Lo-free album followed in 2004). Cee-Lo has, of course, gone onto bigger and better things, with his contemporaries keeping a comparatively low profile.

As AllHipHop report, new album Age Against The Machinewill arrive in June. According to Cee-Lo, the album will sound like “Public Enemy on acid”, and will be “symbolic of wisdom being a weapon of choice.” The band’s manager Larry Mestel also promises a forward-facing LP: “It’s future-sounding. It’s not really what you would think Goodie Mob would be. I think people will be surprised in a positive way when they hear it.”

Age Against The Machine is due on June 18.
