Goodie Mobb


Goodie Mob is an American hip hop group based in Atlanta, Georgia, consisting of CeeLo Green, Khujo, T-Mo, and Big Gipp.


The group was formed in 1991 by Cameron "Big Gipp" Gipp, Willie "Khujo" Knighton Jr., CeeLo Green (born Thomas Callaway), and Robert "T-Mo" Barnett in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1995, Goodie Mob released their debut album, Soul Food, which was critically acclaimed and certified Gold. The album aired social and political issues such as racism, discrimination, geopolitics, and gentrification. Their debut single "Cell Therapy" reached number 39 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also topped the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart. Goodie Mob is part of the hip hop/R&B musical collective, Dungeon Family, also based in Atlanta.

In 1998, Goodie Mob released their second album, Still Standing. The album continued the group's style of social commentary, and CeeLo's singing talents were used 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, CeeLo left the group to pursue a solo career when he was unhappy with the project's direction. Goodie Mob'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 formed the duo Lumberjacks, which they released the album Livin' Life as Lumberjacks in 2005. Big Gipp, as part of the duo Ali & Gipp, released their album Kinfolk in 2006.

Also 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 Age Against the Machine, released in 2013.

After a seven years gap, they released a new album Survival Kit in November 2020.
