Goodie Mob on Fallon
So in one way, at least, it was 1995 again at B. B. King Blues Club & Grill on Friday night, when Goodie Mob arrived, following several years of fracture, as part of its reunion tour. Around 1:45 a.m., the 1980s New York hip-hop standout and nostalgia exploiter Slick Rick left the stage after his opening set; with him went about half the crowd.Goodie Mob's Friday night setlist included Cee-Lo performing his Gnarls Barkley hit "Crazy". One night earlier the group performed "Soul Food" on Fallon (backed by Fallon house band The Roots). Videos from both nights below...
And just as in 1995, all of those people missed out. Dressed in grays and silvers, with a female D.J. in a reflective tinsel wig and matching unitard, the Goodie Mob -- Cee-Lo, Big Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo -- were exuberant and comfortable, happily taking their rightful place as oft-overlooked pioneers.
