One the all-time best hip hop collectives reunited this weekend for an almost unbelievable concert. Dungeon Family–the oversized Atlanta-area hip hop super group featuring Outkast, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike, and many more–reunited for One MusicFest at Aaron’s Amphitheater in Lakewood, Georgia.First of all, the festival had a ridiculous lineup of Ice Cube, Erykah Badu, A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Gary Clark Jr., and Busta Rhymes, on top of scheduled sets from Dungeon Family members Big Boi, Goodie Mob, Cee Lo Green, Killer Mike, and Organize Noize. What. A. Lineup.The individual sets turned into one giant Dungeon Family party, with Andre 3000 making his surprise appearance early on in the set and staying there for the majority of the evening, spitting fire like he was a teenager again. With a live band and DJ combination backing them up, each member/group had their time in the sun. The show featured group blowouts like “Trans DF Express” alongside Outkast hits like “The Whole World”, and “So Fresh, So Clean”, Goodie Mobb hits like “Cell Therapy”, and solo songs like Cee Lo’s Gnarls Barkley mega-hit “Crazy” and Killer Mike’s “Never Scared”, which featured guest appearances by ATL natives T.I. and Bone Crusher.Perhaps the most surprising moment of the night, Erykah Badu hopped on stage with Outkast for “Liberation”, making a rare on-stage appearance with her ex-husband and father of her child Andre 3000. It was that kind of night, as the love on stage between the members of the Dungeon Family was clear. We hope this wasn’t a one-off, as a Dungeon Family tour would be truly epic.See below for a few videos from this incredible and rare performance (please excuse for the extremely heavy bass!!!!)Watch “Trans DF Express” with Dungeon Family, courtesy of YouTube user elbudooWatch “The Whole World” with Outkast and Killer Mike, courtesy of YouTube user AP MorinWatch Outkast perform “Hootie Hoo”, courtesy of elbudooWatch Cee Lo perform his Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy”, courtesy of YouTube user Spencer ClementsWatch “Liberation” with Outkast, Cee Lo, and Erykah Badu, courtesy of YouTube user Amber D Rampley
MASON CITY — A Florida woman accused of cashing stolen checks in north-central Iowa banks has pleaded not guilty. 30-year-old Christina Whitaker of Lantana Florida was accused of going to four different branches of First Citizens Bank in December of last year and cashing eight stolen checks with a total value of $16,300. Authorities say Whitaker used the stolen identity of a bank customer and impersonated the account holder. Whitaker has been charged with ongoing criminal conduct, a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison, as well as identity theft involving over $10,000, a Class C felony punishable by up to ten years. Whitaker was due in court Tuesday for her arraignment hearing but filed a written plea of not guilty to the charges late last week. Her trial is scheduled to start on December 1st. She remains in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $50,000 bond.
