Founding Goodie Mob member Big Gipp is readying
his debut album, Mutant Mind Frame and has formed Goodie Mob Records
with fellow members Khujo and T-Mo.
Mutant Mind Frame enlists the help of
fellow Dungeon Family members Big Boi, Witchdoctor and Sleepy Brown, as well
as E-40 and 8Ball & MJG.
"People always considered our music and
our presentation different than everybody else’s," Gipp said. "If
people go back and listen to OutKast’s ‘Get Up, Get Out,’ which is the first
song the public ever heard Gipp on, I call myself a mutant in that song and
it was something that just stuck with me because I felt like we were outsiders
in the music business who weren’t geared to what New York and Los Angeles were
doing at the time."
Gipp touches on a variety of subjects on the
album, ranging from the struggles African-American’s face in the United States
to paying tribute to children missing or murdered in Atlanta.
"At this point, I’m just trying to come
out and be a beacon," Gipp continued. "I ain’t never changed my tune.
It’s always been the same and always been for our people. I’m political with
my music, but you know what, we need that right now."
As for Goodie Mob Records, the three group members
inked a distribution deal with New York based Indie, KOCH. Cee-Lo, the fourth
member of the group, is contractually bound to Arista Records.
Mutant Mind Frame hits stores July 22.
