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.
