Big Gipp’s “Paradise Life” Is All Furs And Ferris Wheels
Watch the FADER premiere of the Goodie Mob legend’s new clip.
2013's Goodie Mob reunion may not have been as fun as fans had hoped. But considering the fertile ground the group laid for crops of young Atlanta characters popping up today, it's fitting that Mob standout Big Gipp still sounds as distinct and outlandish as he did on last fall's Mr. Get Down, his first and last free project. "Giving away an entire album for free felt foreign to me," Gipp told FADER. "But after a recent tour appearance in ATL with Outkast last year, I experienced the strength of the love that my fans have for me. Truth is, it got me a little emotional." "Paradise Life" was a highlight on a tape filled with ratch-and-clank production and hindsight street stories—them licks used to be sweet, nowadays they sour—and this clip will be Gipp's last drop before turning to his upcoming album, Zagga.
