Goodie Mob’s Cee-Lo Green has formally announced plans to drop a reunion album in the near future tentatively titled We Sell Drugs Too.
While details are still formulating, Green broke the news this week.
“Its official NEW GOODIE MOB ALBUM”WE SELL DRUGS TOO!” this fall!!!! Expect nothing more then the same thang!I know u gone love it:),” he tweeted July 25th. (Cee-Lo Green’s Twitter)
The group’s music date back to the mid-1990’s.
Goodie Mob, compromised of T-Mo, Green, Khujo and Big Gipp, have dominated the charts from jump. Their first album peaked at No. 8 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The quartet’s sophomore project, “Still Standing” (1998), peaked at No. 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart on April 25, 1998 and No. 6 on the Billboard 200. (Billboard)
Despite success with Goodie Mob, Cee-Lo pursued his solo career in the early 2000’s.
Cee Lo Green has had quite a career change in the past ten years. Before he was Cee Lo Green, he was simply Cee-Lo from the little known Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob. In 2000 Cee Lo left the group to pursue his two solo projects 2002’s Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections and 2004’s Cee-Lo Green… Is the Soul Machine. Both of these albums went under a slew of lackluster scrutiny, but the breakout effort for him was his collaboration with Danger Mouse called Gnarls Barkley. When their debut effort called St. Elsewhere was released onto the world, it did two things for the large and in charge pop singer. Everyone realized he was a bit crazy and that he was superbly talented. (Cinema Blend)
Last fall, Cee-Lo hit up SOHH and gave reasons why fans should support his Lady Killer album.
“You should go out and buy this album because it’s a sign for better days in music to come. I’m almost certain this will be an inspiration to so many others, to the industry and artists alike. I think I will be able to establish an optimism, a bridge between those two, artist and executive. It’s taken that type of relationship between myself and my staff in order to commit to a project of this magnitude and risk this great. I think with this being successful, it will bring open mindedness to other projects so that’s one of the reasons I think people should go out and buy this album simply because it’s going to give way to other artists. It will really shape and move things into the right direction.” (Buy My Record)
