Cee Lo Green Says Goodie Mob's "Age Against The Machine" Will Appeal To Core And New Audiences

Cee Lo Green explains that the new Goodie Mob album is "somewhat of a testament to our elasticity."

It's been nearly 13 years since the entirety of Goodie Mob, comprised of Cee Lo Green, Big Gipp, T-Mo, and Khujo, released an album. 1999's World Party was the last proper studio album from the original incarnation of the influential Atlanta Rap collective, until now.

"The Goodie Mob, we definitely are reunited. And we've been working on that album really vigorously and it's coming out very well," confirmed Cee Lo Green in an interview with MTV News.

"I think people are going to be very pleased. You know our core audience and also this new audience that we are aspiring to acquire," added Cee Lo, who is currently taping for a new TV Land sitcom titled "Soul Man."

The album, titled Age Against the Machine, already has a single out, "Fight To Win."  

The Soul Machine explained that the reunion was inevitable. "Well, you know, it was just a matter of time, it's very faithful and we're a family," he said. "And you know we were never separate from each other completely. So our coming together after a 12-year hiatus is somewhat of a testament to our elasticity if you will. That's what I call it."

      @youngsta You're just on every article about a rapper who's either 30 or 40 dissing them, calling them old, and saying they should retire. You need to be open minded about music and not discriminate based on age. I'm going to quote an older post from another article: Why can't rappers have long careers? You see rock and R&B artists that are in their 50s, 60s, and 70s still putting out albums, sell-out tours/arenas, and get love from old and young fans alike, but when a rapper turns 30 or 40, most of the young fans are like, "Oh, you too old. Retire." You'll understand that when the next generation of rappers disrespects your favorite rappers. Nobody stays young forever; remember that. Besides, just because someone doesn't like this generation's rappers, that doesn't mean they're old. I know high school kids and people in their 20s that hate some of this generation's rappers.

      dude is a legend, has tons of hip hop classic, made 1 classic crossover song with Danger Mouse and 1 decent but huge pop song as a solo artist

    • Morpheus

      What If I told you.... For more than almost half his career he was hardly even known, an example of that is when he formed the group Gnarls Barkley and people thought that was his name. He is talented, what he does goes beyond hiphop, or singing. Youtube him.

      Rap-wise the dude is sick! Definitely a Southern legend and one of the more standout members of the DF, his crossing over does kinda irk me, but I don't exactly fault him. Just say fuck it and pray for new Goodie material... that single is disappointing as fuck btw, but I guess their trying get current mainstream attention a la Slaughterhouse's current single (ironically featuring Ceelo)... Here's hoping for the best
