Project: Funk da World is the debut studio album by rapper Craig Mack, released September 20, 1994. The album was the second release on Bad Boy Records, following The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic Ready to Die by one week. Propelled by the success of the Platinum RIAA-selling smash hit single "Flava in Ya Ear", the album reached Gold-RIAA sales status on February 22, 1995. "Flava In Ya Ear" also featured a successful remix (not included on the album), featuring guest verses from The Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, & LL Cool J. The album's second single, "Get Down", was the rapper's second Top 40 hit in 1994, & achieved Gold sales status in the United States in April 1995.

Though commercially successful & acclaimed at the time of its release, the album was overshadowed by the massive success of Ready to Die, & Craig Mack quickly lost public image, releasing only one other album, the commercially unsuccessful Operation: Get Down, in 1997.
