In 1998, Goodie Mob released a second album, Still Standing. The album continued the group's style of social commentary, and Cee-Lo'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, Cee-Lo 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, 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.
