This wasn’t no regular ole concert. Nope. Not at all. ATLien’s united in the rain and mud to celebrate the reunion of one our most heartfelt groups. Khujo, T-Mo, Big Gipp & Cee-Lo. Collectively known as The Goodie Mob. The venue was outside and the weather was rainy but I, personally, was in heaven from the moment the show started. DJ Jelly was on the ones and twos providing Atlanta classic jams during each intermission while DJ Kizzy Rock, Pastor Troy & The Youngbloodz all performed as we celebrated our A-town musical history. These weren’t just no regular ole opening acts either. Each one has a history about as colorful as the Goodie Mob and each shared in the historical value of the event.

The two shared the stage during VH1’s DIVA’s the other night, while a fight was brewing behind the scenes.

The 2009 Georgia Music Hall of Fame Awards went off without a hitch this year…well, that is until the family of the late Shakir Stewart approached the stage to accept his award. Stewart, who’s death rocked the foundation of the recording industry when he took his life in November 2008 at the age of 34, was being honored posthumously with a hall of fame induction.

Maia Campbell, former “In the House” actress and daughter of deceased author BeBe Moore-Campbell, became famous once again after this video surfaced of the former actress acting erratically. Maia was called everything from a crackhead to a prostitute once the video hit the net, however it was soon revealed that her behavior was due to a psychological disorder. Most asked the question: Where’s her family? Why aren’t they helping? Now, after a facing a ton of criticism, Maia’s father and grandmother have come forward and released a statement to Essence Magazine addressing the events that placed Maia in such a horrible situation:
Our hearts have been deeply touched by the outpouring of love that so many of you have freely displayed in the past several days about our beloved Maia C. Campbell. Our spirits have been lifted by your words of support and your acts of kindness and we have been encouraged to continue our efforts to assist our daughter and granddaughter to become whole again.
As a family, we have been struggling with Maia in her illness for quite some time. We continue to hold fast to our faith and hope that some day she will realize that healing will begin when she decides to reach out and accept the help and treatment that have been offered to her. We all have challenges in life that we must face, but when compound problems such as mental illness and substance abuse are prevalent, it can appear that there is no way out. However, our sustaining faith and trust in God compels us to believe differently. We strongly believe that Maia will be healed.
