Ghetto Pop Life is a studio album by hip hop producer Danger Mouse and rapper Jemini. It was released in 2003 on Lex Records and also featured Tha Alkaholiks, Cee Lo Green, The Pharcyde, J-Zone, and Prince Po. In 2004, a reprint of the album with three additional tracks was released in the United States.

Lex Records also released three EPs with tracks (and remixes of tracks) from the album: Take Care of Business EP, Conceited Bastard EP and the 26 Inch EP. Moreover, there was a special promotional CD, the Ghetto Pop Mix, a mixtape with short remixes of the tracks from the album fading into each other, along with a couple of new exclusive tracks.
