Atlanta fans were treated to a surprise Goodie M.O.B. reunion last night (August 19), when all four members of the legendary group appeared on stage during a promotional Nelly concert.
Shortly after being brought on stage as one of Nelly’s many guest performers, Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo Goodie were joined by Cee-Lo, who had been among the capacity crowd at The Tabernacle.
Appearing together for the first time in nearly two years, the group performed two classic cuts, “They Don’t Dance No Mo” and “Black Ice (Sky High),” both from their 1998 sophomore release Still Standing.
The impromptu performance bolstered talk of a forthcoming Goodie M.O.B. reunion, since each group member has remained in the public eye with independent and side projects of their own.
Following the release of two albums without Cee-Lo and his immense international success with producer Danger Mouse, Goodie M.O.B. first reunited on stage in 2006 during a Gnarls Barkley concert.
In November, the group officially announced plans for a reunion album, though not much information about the project has been released since.
The Goodie M.O.B appearance was the highlight of a star-studded event that included performances by Gucci Mane, Jermaine Dupri and the St. Lunatics.
While Nelly performed past hits like “Grillz” and “Welcome to Atlanta,” the majority of the show consisted of cuts from his upcoming album Brass Knuckles, which hits stores September 16.
The free concert was part of AT&T and Samsung’s Summer Crush series, which promotes new music and phone technology simultaneously.
