Cee-Lo Green is one of the most AMAZING singers I've ever heard...

I've always been a fan of his work since his days w/ the Goodie Mob, but his ode to the state of Georgia would make Ray Charles smile....this is just a small sample of what he can do behind a mic. What an incredible talent. I know a lot of you are familiar with him from his work with Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley), but I strongly suggest you to give his Cee-Lo Green and his Perfect Imperfections or his Soul Machine album a listen. Honestly, Lady Killer can't drop soon enough....enjoy

Refreshing to see this kind of talent nowadays. Thanks for posting this

Songs like "Georgia" kinda get lost in the mix with all the stuff that's on the radio, MTV, etc, but wow....I'm not even from the state and I can't help but to smile each time I hear the track. REAL music.

And for the dude who said I'm nuts because of this opinion and Cee-Lo is just "alright," do you care to expand on your blanket statement?

*I forgot to add....his Stray Bullets mixtape is a good listen as well....

Amazing how far Cee Lo has come since the days of Get up, Get Out and Dro in tha wind. He must be doing something right to be relevant today!

BTW, Georgia is a pretty good song and I'm digging on **** You, too.

Oh yeah...if you like Gnarls Barkley, check out their performance on Austin City Limits...good ****.

I have always loved Cee-Lo. I always thought his verses with Goodie Mob were the most thought provoking

"Me and my family moved, in our apartment complex,

A gate with a seriel code was put up next,

They say that this community is soo drug free,

but it don't look that way to me,

Cause I can see the young bloodz hangin out at the sto,

24/7 junkies lookin for a hit of the blow,

its powerful,

Oh you know what else they try to do,

Make a curfew especially for me and you,

Traces of the New World Order,

Time is getting shorter,

If we don't be prepared people theres gon be a slaughter,

My mind wont allow me to not be curious

My folks don't understand so they dtdon'take me serious,

Bute every now and then,

I wonder if the gate was put up to keep crime out,

or keep our ass in,"

That whole first album is littered with intellectual flow, but most promanently from Cee-Lo
