— Guerilla Union, Inc, producer of Rock The Bells, The Cypress Hill SmokeOut, and Paid Dues Festival, is proud to present the return of the legendary Goodie Mob. Goodie Mob will be touring for the first time in ten years, with all original members: Cee-Lo (from Gnarls Barkley), Big Gipp, Khujo, and T-Mo. The tour will kick off on October 15 in New Orleans and features Scarface as the “very special guest” on all dates. Goodie Mob will offer a sneak peak of what fans can expect from the reunion when they perform live at the BET Awards taping in Atlanta on October 10 (the show is scheduled to air on 10/27). Tour highlights include a stop at The Cypress Hill SmokeOut on October 23 at the San Manuel Amphitheatre and festival grounds in San Bernardino, CA, and the blowout NYC show on November 13 at the Hammerstein Ballroom on which Goodie Mob and Scarface will be joined by Tech N9ne and Slaughterhouse (Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5’9).
Universally recognized as pioneering and critically acclaimed, Goodie Mob – along with fellow Dungeon Family group OutKast – introduced southern rap to mainstream America, helped put Atlanta on the map as a Mecca for hip-hop, and is credited with having invented the runaway term “dirty south.” The group was met with an overwhelming response when it recently hit fans in hometown Atlanta with a surprise show. “The reunion was inevitable,” said Cee-Lo. “The void in today’s music and marketplace ironically has become the very place prepared for us. There’s a need and a want for what we do and represent as The Mob. Consider the tour a mission… an order if you will. The last of a living breed, the Goodie Mob marches on.”
The tour’s “very special guest,” Scarface, is considered by many to be one of best rappers of all time. Scarface, a multi-platinum selling recording artist, has received commercial and critical acclaim as both a solo artist, and as a member of the infamous Houston hip-hop group The Geto Boys.
