Audio: Goodie Mob - "I'm Set" [Tagged]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Goodie Mob rep their set in red Adidas track suits

Coming with this exclusive Goodie Mob leak "I'm Set" The Los Angeles Leakers are clearly running a much tighter game than their basketball playing namesakes (I don't have a dog in that fight, really, I just dislike the Lakers on general principles). The song itself is evidence that the Goodie Set are tuning up their offense as well--eschewing gameshows, spacesuits and rock opera chords this time around in favor of straight ahead rap game over an undeniable marching band/go-go beat of big horns and kettle drums. In contrast to other recent outings, team captain Cee-Lo lets all the players get some time on the court (ok I'm just gonna abandon the over-stretched sports metaphor now, cause I don't even watch sports) and even his un-flashy but tuff vocal additions almost make you believe he still lived in the hood, instead of a hollywood mansion made out of pink cotton candy sprinkled with rhinestones. Which is where we know he lives in real life. Stream the tagged-up leak below and prepare to get cautiously psyched about the re-emergence of Goodie Mob.
