Goodie Mob on The Voice

If you catch me on the right day, I might tell you that the Atlanta swamp-rap quartet Goodie Mob are the greatest rap group of all time. It’s been forever since all four principals got together to give us a new song, but they reassembled last night on The Voice, the NBC singing-competition show where Goodie member Cee-Lo works as a judge, to debut the reunion single “Fight To Win.”

You can totally tell that Cee-Lo’s in the driver’s seat here. All four guys wore golden suits of armor and glowing mouthpieces, like they were aliens imitating Earth, Wind & Fire or something, and the song itself is a weirdo electro-soul jam with precious little actual rapping. I really like it, though. It’s our first taste of Age Against The Machine, a reunion album that they’ve been teasing for years, and our first real indication that the album may exist someday. Watch the performance below.

Cell Therapy,” it turns out, was a really, really long time ago.

  1. Easily my favorite part of last nights episode

  2. It sure was nice of the Goodie Mob guys to show up on the new Cee-Lo Green album.

  3. lip-sync for your life, now sashay away.

  4. they reunited first on Fallon in 2009 – no lip-syncing and 120% more rapping!

  5. Haven’t heard anything else of the alleged reunion album, but this reminded me of the Black Eyed Peas at the Super Bowl, i.e. “who are those guys dancing around with Will.i.am and Fregie?” Cee-Lo was always the stand-out member of Goodie Mob (while he was in the group anyway), but this was a bit much.

  6. I totally respect Goodie Mob, but if your reunion is lip-syncing, I don’t care. You might as well be Milli Vanilli or a Tupac hologram. These guys are too talented for this crap.

    Also, my god, was that camerawork awful.
