Goodie Mob ft. Janelle Monáe - Special Education

DJBooth_logo2x

In the eyes of many, claiming that someone is in need of “Special Education” is just a polite way of saying that they're suffering from a handicap. But why does “different” have to mean “worse?” On the latest single off their long-awaited reunion album, legendary Southern crew Goodie Mob attempt to reclaim the phrase, adopting “special-ness” as a badge of honor. Young Fyre's buzzing, whirring synth boardwork bangs in the back as Big Kipp, Khujo, T-Mos and Cee-Lo Green enthusiastically celebrate the ish that sets them apart from their peers in the game. And who better to guest on an ode to nonconformity than Janelle Monáe? The ArchAndroid lends her always-engaging vocals to the record's hook. Goodie Mob's Age Against the Machine LP as yet lacks a drop date but, as always, fans can keep it locked for further details.
