The group enlists T.I. and Janelle Monae for their upcoming album, due August 27.
Fourteen years have passed since Goodie Mob collectively released an album with their entire lineup present. Their reunion had several false starts, dating as far back as 2006, and leading up to even two years ago when it was first announced that a new album was in the works. None of that mattered last night in New York City, as all four members were present in Diddy’s famed “Daddy’s House” recording studio to introduce a project that is destined to own the latter part of the Summer. Welcome to "Age Against the Machine."
The listening session was sponsored by Ty Ku liquors, with mixed drinks flowing and half-shots being circulated as the album played. Cee-Lo Green curated the playback – clad in a black tank top, black leather shorts, and sandals – and flanked by members Khujo, Big Gipp, and T-Mo.
Famed journalist Shaheem Reid played host, interjecting throughout the listening to ask a variety of questions. Only selections from the album were spun, starting with an Intro featuring some welcomed bars from Dungeon Family veteran Big Rube.
