Cee Lo Green had a treat for fans at the ESPN Super Bowl Party early Saturday (Feb. 2). The music star turned the gig into a reunion, bringing his Goodie Mob group members on stage.
After covering his most notables, “F-ck You,” and “Crazy,” the Atlanta native launched into some of his older music. Unfortunately, not everyone in the crowd was appreciative.
But the meat of his show, was an incredible musical moment: he reunited with his rap collection Goodie Mob– Bigg Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo — and for a good chunk of time on stage they took it back to the mid-‘90s.
Much of this moment appeared to be lost on the crowd and, in turn, the lack of enthusiasm was lost on Cee Lo. “I love all of y’all,” Cee Lo drawled from the stage, wearing a black tank top and stop-traffic bling around his neck. “Thank you for supporting me.”
Then, looking down into the crowd, and back at his crew, he shrugged “See, they’re not music fans; they’re sports fans.”
One of his group members got on a microphone and said “Are y’all ready to hear some hip-hop? Say hip-hop! Say ‘Goodie Mob!’” in an effort to rile up the crowd gathered in front of the staging area.
A sprinkling of folks in the crowd seemed to understand the cultural significance of what was happening here: a coming together of a group that for years has been teasing hip-hop fans with a full-fledged reunion.
The visibly “disappointed” singer reportedly explained why pulling his group members on stage was a big moment, before delving back into his solo work.
Since becoming known for the massively successful, expletive-laced single, “F-ck You,” Green landed a job on NBC’s The Voice. He’s currently taking a break from the singing competition and has several ventures in the works, including a scripted show loosely based on his life.
