If it wasn't for Goodie Mob, the rap game might be drastically different. It took Khujo, T-Mo, Big Gipp and Cee Lo Green screaming "what y'all really know about the Dirty South?" to really help instill a sense of pride and unity among rappers below the Mason Dixon.
And a lot has happened since the Atlanta quartet dropped their 1995 debut, Soul Food. So before the Goodie Mob drop their reunion LP, Age Against the Machine, on August 27 they'll stop by MTV's "RapFix Live" Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT to catch us up.
Schoolboy Q will also crash the red couch — tune in RapFix.MTV.com and MTV Jams — to talk about his inclusion in MTV Jams' 2013 Fab Five class, alongside August Alsina, Gunplay, Chance the Rapper and Travis Scott.
We'll be sure to get plenty of updates from the Black Hippy spitter about his upcoming major-label debut, Oxymoron. Q's already linked with Kendrick Lamar on the LP's single "Collard Greens" and promises collaborations with Raekwon, J. Cole and Pharrell.
Pusha T will make an appearance as well to reveal some very important news about his much-anticipated solo debut, My Name Is My Name. The Clipse MC has been crafting the album for well over a year now under the guidance of G.O.O.D. Music head honcho Kanye West. Way back in 2011, Push gave MTV News a sneak peak of "40 Acres," a track that's slated for the album.
"One of the more thoughtful records would be '40 Acres,' and it's produced by The-Dream and Rico Beats," he told us. "It really harps on things that have happened in my life in regards to family — my brother being my partner, my parents not being together — speaking on how those things altered my views on relationships and so on."
