Goodie Mob is an American hip hop group from Atlanta, Georgia. The group was formed in late 1993 by rappers Cee-Lo, Big Gipp, Khujo and T-Mo. Goodie Mob made their commercial debut in 1994 on OutKast's first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and were later inducted into the collective Dungeon Family. In 1995, Goodie Mob released their debut album, Soul Food, which was critically acclaimed and later became Gold-certified. The album aired social and political problems such as racism, discrimination, geopolitics, and gentrification. Along with the aforementioned OutKast album, it helped to popularise Atlanta's hip hop scene and made the group one of the most popular Southern hip hop acts.

In 1998, Goodie Mob released their second album, Still Standing. The album continued their tendency towards social commentary, and Cee-Lo's singing talents were utilized more frequently. The group's third album, World Party, veered away from their gritty style and instead incorporated lighter beats and party related subject matter. During its production, Cee-Lo left the group to pursue a solo career when he was unhappy with the project's direction. The group's fourth album, One Monkey Don't Stop No Show, was released in 2004 and suffered a poor reception, resulting in Big Gipp also leaving the group. T-Mo and Khujo, as The Lumberjacks, released the album Livin' Life as Lumberjacks in 2005. 

In 2006, all four members of Goodie Mob performed together following a Gnarls Barkley concert, marking the group's reunion. In 2011, Goodie Mob signed with Elektra Records and worked on a new album, which would eventually become 2013's Age Against the Machine.
