The almighty Goodie Mob has joined forces with Funny or Die to premiere the official music video today for their latest single “Amy”, which is featured on their new album Age Against the Machine. The southern rap group, made up of CeeLo Green, Big Gipp, Khujo, and T-Mo, brainstormed the concept of this new music video, which tells a little story of a girl named Amy. With a retro, 80s vibe, the music video hilariously depicts each Goodie Mob member as rapping puppets pushing the message to Love Who You Want. The video also features the One Tree Hill starlet Shantel VanSanten, who plays Amy, as well as a scarily-similar Terry Richardson look-alike.
“In this new music video, we, the Goodie Mob, stylized a somewhat serious subject matter with some sense of humor,” explains CeeLo Green. “Simply because at this point, racism, classism, and the ignorance that encourages it is…Laughable.”

“Amy” is the second single off Goodie Mob’s latest album, and the group has preformed the catchy song on NBC’s hit show The Voice as well as Conan. Goodie Mob has also just finished filming a new unscripted TV series, “CeeLo Green’s The Good Life”, which will premiere this June on TBS. The series focuses on CeeLo's creative partnership with his longtime best friends — Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo — as they prepare to bring their legendary hip-hop group Goodie Mob back to the world stage. As they enjoy this ride of a lifetime, all they have to do is navigate a demanding schedule, the perks and temptations of being at the top of the music game, and 20 years of history together, all while keeping their friendship intact.
