Goodie Mob Reunited
So...last night. The choice was: Free Bun B show at The Loft or Free Nelly show at The Tabernacle or Lloyd at Pure.
I chose Bun. Obviously all the women were gonna be at the Nelly show and the late night action was gonna be at the Lloyd show. I chose Bun tho. Then...I get an email from my nigga Matt The Mayor:

Man.... Goodie mob just performed at Nelly concert!! even ceelo perform with these nigga!!!
No lie...i went around to every person I knew at the show, showing them the email. Everybody had the same reaction....slight disappointment.
You can't get too mad because you're at a free Bun B show. But at the same time, you're like, damn.
I mean, the whole day. I was clowning cats who chose to go to the Nelly show over Bun's show. I like Nelly, but c'mon now. But I'll be damned, Pimp Juice brought out every fourth of the Goodie Mo-B.
Bun, who evidently went to the Nelly show before hitting the stage and I must add, reads EVERYBODY'S BLOGS...sent pics over to Eskay.
I got this pic outside after the Bun show. That's cool how they all swung over to show support. Sometimes I wish I was more ruthless with the camera. I could have easily got a pic inside. But Gipp asked me to respect their space. Which I can completely understand. Unlike the Nas/Jay-Z shit...Goodie Mob were friends and brothers before rap stardom. Same goes with the Big Boi/Killer Mike shit. After I got those pics and video of them, alot of folks were wanting me to get them together for interviews and stuff. But we have to realize, those dudes were friends and just now started back talking to each other again...gotta respect the situation and their space.
But, Gipp assured me that they was gonna look out for me later, and they did. I'm grateful for that. I'm also grateful that they let me snap this pic on the strength of remembering me from an article I did on Soul Food a few months ago.
I got some video of the Bun show that I'll post later. I'm kinda tired right now and don't feel like waiting on the YouTube uploads this very second. But I got ya'll though.
