TV One’s music documentary series Unsung will next focus on Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob.

In an episode set to air Sunday, April 19, the series looks back at how the hip hop quartet changed the rap game in the mid-90s.

Formed in 1991, the group was made up of Big Gipp, Khujo, CeeLo Green, and T-Mo. In a time when New York and Los Angeles dominated hip hop, Goodie Mob changed the game for Southern rappers and received nationwide recognition.

With hits including “Dirty South,” “Black Ice,” and “Cell Therapy,” the collective cemented their place in hip hop history. But when CeeLo decided to pursue a solo career, it threatened to end the group for good.

In a preview clip, Big Gipp said he was angered by CeeLo’s decision. “I was pissed off at ‘Lo for leaving,” he recalled.

CeeLo countered that he thought “the split would be amicable.” “As far as I was concerned it was,” he said.

All four members of Goodie Mob, along with friends and family, including Big Boi, T.I., and Killer Mike, came together to tell their story.

The episode of Unsung airs Sunday, April 19 at 10 p.m. ET/9C on TV One.
