Atlanta hip hop quartet Goodie Mob changed the rap game in the mid-90s. With distinctive flows backed by dope beats, they helped create a new lane for Southern rappers in a time when New York and LA dominated hip hop. Instead of boasting about what they had or what they did in the streets, the group focused its lyrics on messages of inspiration and social justice. With multiple gold albums and irresistible hits, like “Dirty South”, “Black Ice”, and “Cell Therapy”, Goodie Mob cemented their place in hip hop. When group member CeeLo left to pursue a solo career and found huge success, it threatened to end the group for good. In this episode of Unsung, all four members of Goodie Mob, along with friends and family, including Big Boi, T.I., and Killer Mike, come together to tell their story.
