CHICAGO (Business Wire) -- Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) (http://www.groupon.com) today announces a deal for Goodie Mob's first album in 14 years. Groupon has a limited supply of Goodie Mob's new album, “Age Against the Machine,” which officially releases from Primary Wave on Aug. 27. The CD is now available for purchase at Groupon.com for $8.99 at http://gr.pn/180qCBQ.
The first single off the new Goodie Mob album is entitled, “Special Education,” featuring Janelle Monae. The album also features T.I., and Goodie Mob's U.S. tour kicks off this weekend on Aug. 24 in Washington, with a special stop the following night in Brooklyn, N.Y. for a post-VMAs concert at Brooklyn Bowl. Goodie Mob's last released single was “Fight To Win,” in the summer of 2012, an anthem of liberation, motivation and determination to always fight to win in life, a motto that the Goodie Mob lives by. Also, CeeLo Green's memoire, “Everybody's Brother,” releases Sept. 10. In addition to the new album, tour and book, CeeLo and Goodie Mob will be the subjects of a new reality series to debut in 2014.
Goodie Mob is a pioneering Southern hip-hop group and one of the most celebrated rap acts to come out of the hip-hop hotbed of Atlanta. Formed in 1991, Goodie Mob's original and current group members include CeeLo Green, Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo, all of whom grew up together in Atlanta alongside the rest of the Dungeon Family—the musical collective of Southern rappers, which includes Andre 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast, Organized Noise and Parental Advisory. After officially joining forces in the early 90s, Goodie Mob put out their debut album Soul Food in 1995, which was certified gold in the U.S. and is recognized as the album that put Atlanta's rap scene on the map.
