Goodie Mob have never rapped for the sake of rapping. Rather, their intentions have always been to enlighten and that is clear in their new visual for “Special Education,” featuring Janelle Monáe.
The Dungeon Family affiliates encourage listeners to be individuals while teens take on their roles and lip sync their lines at a school. Viewers will see each of the MC’s young counterparts overcome their respective adversities as the track’s synth-heavy production echoes in the background.
“I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and I grew up on OutKast, I grew up on Goodie Mob, I grew up on Dungeon Family,” explained Janelle. “So the fact that they’re coming back with music that is jamming and that I get to be a part of it, it’s just such an honor.”
“Special Education” will appear on Goodie Mob’s forthcoming album, Age Against the Machine, due in stores August 27. Catch the treatment below.
