A little more than seven years after releasing their fifth studio album, Age Against the Machine, Goodie Mob has returned with their highly-anticipated follow-up, Survival Kit. The project was produced by none other than Organized Noize and features contributions from Dungeon Family alumni Big Rube, Big Boi, and even Andre 3000, who provided a guest verse on “No Cigar.”

OutKast has not released an official studio album since Idlewild back in 2006. Over the course of the last five years, 3K has been featured on tracks with Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Solange, A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson. Paak, and more–but his features are scarce. A 45-year-old Andre made it clear years ago that he didn’t want to be a 40-year-old rapper, so any time fans get just one guest verse, it’s something special and unexpected.

According to T-Mo, he and his fellow Goodie Mob members—Big Gipp, Khujo, and CeeLo Green—wrote Survival Kit as a response to the Black Lives Matter movement and the ongoing civil unrest sparked by police brutality.

“Right now, just seeing all of our people on TV marching and protesting and being shot at, bottles and stuff being chucked at the police, people burning down buildings and looting because we’re tired of all of the injustices,” he explained.

Earlier this month, the Atlanta hip hop icons celebrated the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough album Soul Food. The expanded edition of the release features remixes and A cappella renditions of classics off the album like “Cell Therapy” and “Dirty South.” There are also 8 bonus tracks included in the revamp too.

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
