After seeing their performance last night on Jimmy Kimmel, I can’t help but wonder what the hell is going on with the Goodie Mob reunion. I mean, sure, Cee Lo has gone completely pop, but at least he has been making good music along the way. Gnarls Barkley was artistically satisfying, wasn’t it? Even “Fuck You” held some value. With that said, I didn’t think it was all that far-fetched to expect something honorable from the Goodie Mob reunion. Boy, was I wrong.
Okay, I get it, the music industry is a business after all. But did we have to sell out this much, people? The group responsible for such classic albums as Soul Food, among others, now sounds more contrived than the Black Eyed Peas. Can anyone actually tell me what Khujo, T-Mo, and Big Gipp contributed besides backup dancing choreography? And the
worst best part, they are now called “Goodie Mob featuring Cee Lo.” Oh, and apparently the Atlanta MCs are huge LA Kings fans, too.
I usually feel pretty bad about rants like this, but this one is completely warranted. Seriously. This is rock bottom.
