The Goodie Mob is back together again and all is right with the world!! Yesterday all four members climbed aboard a “Special” MARTA bus assigned to tour nothing but the southside. *sigh* The memories… Besides the fact the I was having my own personal flashbacks about Mays High circa 1997 1987 *cough* oops I mean…hell y’all already know I been around these parts for quite some time. I ain’t shame! But besides all that, T-Mo, Khujo, Gipp & Cee-Lo each had their own personal stories to tell about life growing up on the southside of Atlanta.
The Goodie Mob’s “Special” MARTA bus
DJ Drama was designated as MARTA bus M.C and announced each stop in his signature fashion. Tour stops included The Rec at West Manor Park, Mays High School and of course the infamous “Dungeon” where the ATLien’s spit rhymes and created those soulful beats that our city is so famous for.
Goodie Mob take a moment to reflect in front of the “Dungeon” ~ Rico Wade’s now vacant home.
The final stop woulda/shoulda been Greenbriar Mall but I think we dwelled a lil too long in front of Rico Wade’s former diggs. The house which holds many memories of Dungeon Family antics now sits vacant and lonely. The multi-million dollar studio located in the basement of the property (hence the “Dungeon” tag) is now boarded and whatever remains inside has been secured by a metal pulldown fence:
“Just for the record we collectively got together & tried to purchase the dungeon… It’s still in litigation” ~ Cee-Lo
I got y’all covered on the video footage and even live tweeted before during and after the tour. What wasn’t included in my live play by play was the pure emotion of everyone aboard that dayum MARTA bus. Each and every person, whether a fellow ATLien or not, was just as involved in what Goodie Mob had to say about their past and all are even more excited about the future of Goodie Mob.
