How do your favorite rappers write their rhymes? To find out, Complex TV has started a new series, The Process. Hosted by Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg and shot at New York City's legendary Chung King Studios, The Process features intimate conversations with established legends as well as exciting up-and-comers about how they put their rhymes together and the magic that happens when the pen hits the pad. New episodes of The Process premiere every Tuesday on Complex TV.
In the latest installment of The Process with Peter Rosenberg, Goodie Mob talks about how they first started working together. They use unique language to describe their process; at one point Khujo refers to a hook being "aged in oak."
When Rosenberg asks the group about whether or not they had a chip on their shoulder about proving down South rappers could keep up with their East Coast counterparts. "I hated the stereotype," says Cee-Lo. "I said this on many occasions, I felt like we were more activists than artists because we felt like, at that time, we were fighting for the civil rights of Southern hip-hop to be counted."
Towards the end of the video, the group touches on how their working process is different because they're older and more calculated. That might explain their new album title, Age Against the Machine, which is in stores today.
