Goodie Mob rapper Khujo was in a serious car accident in Atlanta early yesterday morning (June 25) and has lost his right leg below the kneecap, according to an Arista Records spokesperson. The spokesperson could not confirm reports that Khujo had fallen asleep at the wheel after leaving a Goodie Mob recording session, but notes that the rapper “is in good spirits.”
As reported this morning, Outkast member Big Boi dedicated the act’s BET award for favorite music group to Khujo at the ceremony last night in Los Angeles. Outkast and Goodie Mob have frequently collaborated throughout its members’ respective careers, including an album last year under the Dungeon Family moniker.
Goodie Mob has not released an album since 1999’s “World Party,” which debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and has sold 383,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Group member Cee-Lo recently issued his Arista solo debut, “Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections,” which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
Khujo and fellow Goodie Mob member T-Mo recently taped an appearance for the music documentary “Starvin’ Artists,” which was shot in Atlanta and also features Biz Markie and members of Jagged Edge, A Tribe Called Quest, among others. The film is expected to hit video rental stores this month.
