In 1991, Cee Lo and fellow Atlanta rappers Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp joined forces to form the Goodie Mob. Goodie Mob (short for Good Die Mostly Over Bullshit) would go on to play a pioneering role in the development of Southern rap along with friends and frequent collaborators OutKast. In 1994, Goodie Mob introduced themselves to the world by appearing on OutKast’s debut album Southernplayalisticcadillacmuzik. Both groups were part of the Atlanta rap collective The Dungeon Family also includes the production team Organized Noize. Cee-Lo’s distinct voice and socially conscious rhymes made him stand out on tracks like “Git Up, Git Out” and suggested he may have star potential.
