Lots of shock-and-awe subliminals and innovative editing in this first look from Goodie Mob's forthcoming reunion album, Age Against the Machine. Noisey premiered "I'm Set" on Wednesday, and it's worth the buzz. In the first video Cee Lo, Khujo, Gipp, and T-Mo have appeared in together since the World Party era (circa 1999), they make a grand entrance donning space-age trap suits with fur hoodies. The visuals are plenty trippy, interspersed with shots of explosions, astronauts, war, civil unrest, animals gone wild, and Cee Lo toting a gold-plated AK-47. But it's the conceptual deconstruction and remixing of the song, featuring back-and-forth cuts to unrelated bars in different verses, that makes it feel like an intentional mindfuck. Or a bit of ingenious marketing. Either way, it leaves you wanting to hear more, which is the idea. The latest word on the album release date is still August 27. And here's the complete tracklist, according to HipHopDX:
1. U Don't Know What You Got (Intro)
2. State Of The Art (Radio Killa)
4. Silence... .. The New Hate (Interlude)
5. I'm Set
7. Pinstripes (feat. T.I.)
8. Special Education (feat. Janelle Monae)
9. Ghost Of Gloria Goodchild
11. Come As You Are
13. The Both Of Me
14. Balls (Interlude)
17. Uncle Red's (Interlude)
18. Father Time
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
