Goodie Mob is back. And that’s no joke. Cee-Lo announced a summer release date for Age Against The Machine yesterday. Less than 24 hours later, we receive a sampling with a high-energy single called “Special Education.”
Like most Goodie Mob tracks, this isn’t catered for radio. Nevertheless, the legendary collective managed to drop knowledge on the quality jam. Heavy synths bellow, while the Dungeon Family affiliates question the uniformity in Hip-Hop and society overall.
Janelle Monae assists with a chorus that chants “I don’t wear the clothes you wear/ I’m just different and I don’t care/ It’s kind of sad and it’s a shame/ Everyone wants to be the same,” before asking “don’t you want to be special?”
Bravo! And just that fast, we’re officially excited to hear what else the Goodie Mob has to say on Age Against The Machine. If all goes as planned, fans will hear the project August 27. Cross your fingers.
Hear “Special Education” below.
