World Party is the third studio album by the Atlanta-based, hip hop quartet Goodie Mob. It follows their previous Dirty South classics, Soul Food and Still Standing. This is the last Goodie Mob album with the original four members before their breakup (though all four members have recently joined back together in 2010 to record a new album).Goodie Mob made two other albums after this one with a shortened roster, One Monkey Don't Stop No Show without Cee-Lo and Livin' Life As Lumberjacks without Cee-Lo or Big Gipp. World Party was released in 1999 under LaFace Records as a more commercial alternative to their usual socially conscious lyricism. What was maybe an attempt to appeal more to the masses was met with mixed reviews from their old fans and made little impact on the ones they were trying to reach. Goodie Mob was dropped from their label as a result of this album's lackluster sales. The song Rebuilding is one of Kanye West's first produced tracks to be released on a nationwide album.
The Album was Certified Gold By the RIAA in 2000
