Usher & Gucci Mane on set of “Spotlight” video shoot
Check out a few screen shots from the set of Gucci Mane’s upcoming video for “Spotlight” featuring Usher. The song was featured on a recent “A” Pod (Click Here if you missed it) and is yet another hot joint for Gucci. As if an Usher duo wasn’t enought to create quite a buzz, there’s much talk about the video in that it features Bria Murphy, the oldest daughter of comedian Eddie Murphy and his ex-wife Nicole. The scenery may also look familiar to some of you club heads. It was shot at LIFE over on Cheshire Bridge.
A new video has recently been released from H-Town. You remember H-Town dontcha? Ok… lemme refresh your memory ~~> Knockin the Boots? OK. Now that you’ve been reminded, H-Town originally consisted of members Darryl “G.I.” Jackson and his longtime friends, Solomon “Shazam” Conner and Shazam’s twin brother, Keven “Dino” Conner. The 3rd member of the group, Dino was killed in an automobile accident in 2003. Since that awful loss, the group has continued to perform as a duo and is now back with a new video entitled, Knockin Your Heels Off which features Jodeci. Yep… you read right. JODECI is back in the game and totally stole the spotlight from H-Town!

I now pronounce this FLASHBACK Friday. Way before Cee-Lo came to his senses and decided to reunite with the group (Goodie Mob Reunion Concert Footage), there was a short documentary developed around the Goodie Mob which carried the name of their “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show” project. The entire Dungeon Family, including Outkast, participated in the video and I give the directors much props for putting all this great footage together. If you’re a true southern hip-hop head, this is one video that’ll make your day. Happy Friday!
Video ~ Goodie Mob Documentary (Part 1)
Synopsis:Goodie Mob, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is widely considered one of the founding hip hop acts of the Dirty South movement. Members Cee-Lo (Thomas Callaway), Khujo Goodie (Willie Knighton, Jr.), T-Mo Goodie (Robert Barnett), and Big Gipp (Cameron Gipp) make up the group, which has been functioning since 1995.
“GOODIE MOB”, as it’s written on their album covers, stands for “GOOD DIE Mostly Over Bullshit”. Cee-Lo notes in a song off the Soul Food album that, “[If] you take out one ‘O’ it stands for ‘GOD Is Every Man Of Blackness.’ ”
Its members were all born in Atlanta, and the group is based there with the rest of the Dungeon Family, a collective which includes OutKast and P.A. (Parental Advisory). Goodie was first heard featured on several songs from OutKast’s first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
Cee-Lo was the most visible member of the group prior to his departure in 2000 (among other projects, he is now recording as Gnarls Barkley), while Big Gipp has made several rounds on other Dungeon Family members’ albums and a solo album Mutant Mindframe, and T-Mo and Khujo form a duo within the group called The Lumberjacks.
