Cee-Lo Speaks on Goodie Mob Tour w/ Scarface
After a successful reunion show last month, Goodie Mob has agreed to a deal with promoter Guerilla Union to embark on a nationwide tour.
Despite this being the groups first tour in 10 years, Cee-Lo explained that the decline in todays popular music set the stage for Goodies reunion, which played to a sold out, turn away crowd in Atlanta.
The reunion was inevitable. The void in todays music and marketplace ironically has become the very place prepared for us, he stated. Theres a need and a want for what we do and represent as The Mob. Consider the tour a mission an order if you will. The last of a living breed, the Goodie Mob marches on.
Assisting Goodie Mob is legendary lyricist Scarface, who has been confirmed for every date on the tour.
This will be the Houston legends first nationwide tour since announcing his retirement following his last critically acclaimed album, 2008s Emeritus.
Additionally, the Atlanta collective will be a part of several high-profile shows, starting with the BET Awards taping this Saturday (October 10), Cypress Hills Smokeout event (October 23), and an NYC show with Slaughterhouse and Tech N9ne.
At press time, Goodie Mobs tour will run for 11 dates over the next two months.
