Goodie Mob member Khujo was in a car accident on Monday night and remains hospitalized in Atlanta, according to sources close to his camp. He had his right leg amputated below the knee due to the injuries he sustained.
The Goodie Mob’s record company, Arista, has not yet commented or issued a statement to the press, and the full extent of Khujo’s condition has not been released. On Tuesday night at the BET Awards in Los Angeles, Big Boi of Outkast told the world of his friend’s accident and wished his fellow Dungeon Family member well.
“I just got off the phone with Dre. He’s in Atlanta comforting Khujo right now,” Big Boi said of his partner’s absence at a backstage press forum. “He’s in good spirits despite losing a leg.”
The Mob’s last album, World Party, came out in 1999. One of the foursome, Cee-Lo, released his debut solo LP, Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections, this spring. Khujo and the rest of the members were said to be working on solo projects as well.
