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: Continue Reading…
The Goodie Mob is holding a reunion show September 19th at the Masquerade. I posted the first 2 of the 4 TV spots announcing the show last week which featured Big Gipp and Khujo Goodie. Now the 3nd drop has been released which features T-Mo discussing what the reunion means to him. Stay tuned for the remaining spot featuring Cee-lo.

I spotted Alphonso Ribeiro a few days ago during the Atlanta screening of “Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself.”? Ribeiro, best known for his antics as Carlton Banks alongside Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel Aire, has been in television since he was knee high to a grasshopper. He’s even starred alongside the Jackson’s during their Pepsi commercial days:
I got a chance to catch up with Alphonso to find out what he’s been up to lately.? As you know, Alphonso also starred alongside LL Cool J and Maia Campbell on “In the House” so of course the major question on my mind was if he’d seen that infamous Maia Campbell video.? Alphonso graciously answered and even shed some light on his Tyler Perry connection: Continue Reading…
Check out Shawty Lo’s “Atlanta, GA” featuring The Dream, Ludacris & Gucci Mane. I heard this song a while ago minus The Dream and although Luda was on it I was still like…ummm ok, it’s aiight. But it’s since been remixed with a different beat and The Dream jumped on the hook to make it complete (y’all know a Mr. Nash hook can make ANYTHING addictive)….instant classic!
Atlanta, GA ~ Shawty Lo ft. The Dream, Ludacris & Gucci Mane
Lil Kim made her annual trip down south last weekend to participate in Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride Weekend, which coincidentally coincides every year with Labor Day & Luda Day festivites. The rapper did double duty, performing LIVE at both The Georgia Freight Depot (Lesbian Club), as well as Traxx (Gay Male Club) on Saturday night. [Sidebar: Wondering wassup with the gender descrimination? Why couldn’t the lezzbuns *(c) Alexyss K. Tylor* & the gayboys party in the same building?] Kim was also joined in the celebration by close friends Anessa (of MTV’s Real World) and model Tocarra. Check out a few flix:
Tocarra & Lil Kim
Of course it wouldn’t be a party without V-103’s resident She-male, Miss Sophia!
I heard Kim worked it onstage…so much so that she came right out of her shoes!
Check out more Photos + video of Lil Kim’s performance under the cut:
