Atlanta hip-hop icon, Gipp of Goodie Mob, delivers his infectious broad anthem “Shine Like Gold” featuring CeeLo Green.
The iconic rap pioneer and songwriter will release his first single, “Shine Like Gold” featuring CeeLo Green, on iTunes and other digital retailers July 7, 2014. He’s also currently preparing his long-awaited second full-length album and Epic Records debut—Zagga—for release early this fall.
In short, 2014 promises to be a landmark year for Gipp. “Shine Like Gold” combines his priceless verses and smooth, profound delivery with CeeLo’s instantly recognizable falsetto. It’s a timeless banger from two of the genre’s pillars. Take a listen here!
Meanwhile, Gipp stars alongside the rest of his Goodie Mob comrades on the brand new TBS reality show, CeeLo Green’s “The Good Life”. Making its world premiere Monday June 23 at 10:30pm (est), the program follows the group members as they maintain their lifelong friendship and uncanny sense of humor, while making new music and traveling the world together.
The series focuses on CeeLo's creative partnership with his longtime best friends—Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo—as they prepare to bring their legendary hip-hop group Goodie Mob back to the world stage. After a long hiatus and the explosion of CeeLo's solo music career, CeeLo now wants to share his success with the best friends with whom he started. Together, they brought the legendary hip-hop group Goodie Mob back into the spotlight with their fifth album, Age Against the Machine, which was released in 2013, and they have an international tour on the horizon. To enjoy this ride of a lifetime, all they have to do is navigate a demanding schedule, the perks and temptations of being at the top of the music game, and twenty years of history together, all while still keeping their friendship intact. For a glimpse of what’s to come, watch the trailer.
Slated for release early this fall, Zagga marks Gipp’s first solo album since 2003’s celebrated Mutant Mindframe. It also serves as the kick-off to the biggest and brightest chapter of his solo career yet.
