Goodie Mob & Geto Boys Reunite For Cypress Hill's Smokeout
GNARLS BARKLEY star CEE-LO GREEN's former group, GOODIE MOB, has added a second reunion show at CYPRESS HILL's upcoming Smokeout festival return in California.
The hip-hop act and Geto Boys will both reform for the event, which was last held in 2003.
The two-day festival at the San Manuel Amphitheatre at the end of October (09) will be hosted by stoner icons Cheech & Chong and feature Slipknot, the Deftones and Sublime.
Rappers Cypress Hill launched Smokeout in 1998 to create awareness around cannabis counter-culture.
The band's B Real says, "This will be our best Smokeout ever. Slipknot, Deftones, Sublime! Cheech and Chong, Redman and Method Man, Geto Boys, Goodie Mob... It's a stoner's dream come true. Our fans deserve an event that celebrates our love of music and marijuana culture. It's gonna take two days to take it all in."
Bandmate DJ Muggs adds, "After six years we are returning with the world's premier cannabis music festival. The spirit of the Smokeout is centred in unifying people, music, while being embraced by the world's oldest miracle herb. This two day festival of high vibrations of lifted music with friends and family is truly exciting to see take form and once again rock the stage with some of the best musical acts in the world."
Goodie Mob announced plans to reunite for a one-off show in in their native Atlanta, Georgia on 19 September (09) last month (Jul09).
A statement from Green reads, "The Goodie Mob Reunion is something we have collectively talked about doing for a long time. The people have called for it, and with the state of the union the way it is, the time is right."
Green quit Goodie Mob, who stormed the world's rap charts in 1995 with the album Soul Party, in 2000.
