Khujo a.k.a. Khujo Goodie (born Willie Edward Knighton Jr.; March 13, 1972) is an American hip hop musician. He is one-fourth of Goodie Mob (along with T-Mo, Cee-Lo, and Big Gipp), and one-half of The Lumberjacks (with T-Mo).

Life and career[edit]

Khujo was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the only featured guest to appear on every single Outkast album, including Big Boi's solo album. Khujo has released a new book titled "Straight out the A" that focuses on his life and the development of the Dirty South movement from OutKast to Goodie Mob. Khujo is a very spiritual man known for his distinct, grunty voice and free-flowing rhyming style. He rhymes about all aspects of street life, often intertwining those subject with God metaphorically or directly. In 2002 he was involved in a car crash which resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee.[1]

He released his debut solo album, The Man Not the Dawg, in 2002.
