Goodie Mob was a hip-hop/rap group based in Atlanta, Georgia that formed in 1991 and currently consists of members Cee-Lo Green, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp. The group's name acts as a double backronym. As explained on the track "Fighting" on Soul Food, Goodie Mob means "The Good Die Mostly Over Bullshit".
All four members were born in Atlanta, and the group is based there with the rest of the Dungeon Family, a collective which includes OutKast and Parental Advisory (P.A.). Goodie was first heard featured on several songs from OutKast's first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
Cee-Lo was the most visible member of the group prior to his departure in 2000 (among other projects, he is now recording in collaboration with DJ Danger Mouse as Gnarls Barkley), while Big Gipp has made several rounds on other Dungeon Family members' albums, and T-Mo and Khujo form a duo within the group called The Lumberjacks.
It was reported that all four Goodie Mob members are back on good terms and have reentered the studio to release a brand new album. Cee-Lo and Big Gipp both referenced this in multiple interviews. The four members appeared on stage together on October 1, 2006 following a Gnarls Barkley show, stating that they were back together and on good terms. Goodie Mob officially announced the group's reunion November 19, 2007 on Atlanta's V-103 radio station.
