One MusicFest 2013 is to music lovers what New York Fashion Week is to fashionistas and label whores: indelible bliss. Residents of the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood reaped the benefits of their cool, downtown space being invaded by thousands upon thousands of folks feenin’ for some good ol’ fashioned soul food.

In its fourth year, One MusicFest is proving to be the music festival to attend. Since its inception, it has seen artists such as Common, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E Fresh, The Foreign Exchange, Anthony David, Tortured Soul, Santigold, Chrisette Michele, Big K.R.I.T. and a host more kill the stages. In 2013, the lineup and the venue changed but the rules remained the same: come prepared to have a good ass time.

From noon to 11pm, the Historic Fourth Ward Park provided refuge to those seeking solace in the midst of uncertainty. OMF allowed its patrons to let go, let loose and vibe to dope sounds in the company of other like-minded musicheads. Hosted by my personal favorite sanger Joi Gilliam and Atlanta’s slickest, sickest host D.R.E.S. tha BEATnik, the event was transformed from a music festival to a huge block party. Blanketed by camaraderie and enveloped in a commonality of music appreciation, everyone gathered with the intent to enjoy themselves thoroughly.


Im Set Goodie Mob

Goodie MoB dropped the visuals for their new single, “I’m Set” from their upcoming album Age Against the Machine.  I don’t fully understand it but I’m diggin’ it anyway.  Check it out under the cut and share your thoughts about the video in the comments…

You can catch Goodie Mob in Atlanta at One MusicFest on Sept. 14th.  Cop your tickets here!

Oh, and if you can’t hear the song clearly in the video, get into it below.


Peep that logo.  Black & white, rockin’ out side by side, groovin’ to dope tunes, enjoying the commonality of love for damn good music.  This is absolutely the message and vibe to be expected from One Musicfest, one of the most exciting, anticipated music events of the year.  If music is the motivation, One Musicfest is the outlet.  Don’t even take my word for it, check the honest to God visuals below:




This is the Goodie Mob I’ve been waiting for.  The ones that kick in the door and stomp on the beat.  THIS is that Goodie Mob.  I wasn’t pleased with their “first” single and I think this track restores the hope and anticipation that was lost in that other joint (that shall not be named).

With a song about uniqueness and individuality, the inclusion of one of music’s most standout artist, Janelle Monae, was a smart move on Goodie’s part.  “I don’t wear the clothes you wear, I’m just different and I don’t care.”

Keep your fingers crossed that their August 27th release date is set in stone.  Listen below and don’t resist the head nods.
