Cee-Lo Can Feel What’s Cool

HipOnline.com caught up with Cee-Lo Green and was asked when cooking up a melody or hearing one if you knows instantly that it’s hot. “I’m so used to going against the grain that I’ll compare it to what people think is around, ‘I’ll Be Around’ for example I thought that was hot,” Green responded. “I thought everyone would get into it I felt everyone could involve themselves in the rhythm of the track. You’ll feel it and that is always cool. It’s enough for me… it doesn’t have to be a monster hit because people do dictate what is big.” Read the entire interview here.

Cee-Lo tells James Mayo of the Cleveland Scene he’s on a quest to save hip hop. “I just believe hip-hop and music in general is in despair,” he says. “People want something that they can hold sacred and that is real to them and speaks to the heart of the people. All music doesn’t have to convey a message all the time — there’s quality nonsense and quality irrelevance — but I think it’s time where we need something profound. There needs to be a revolution, and revolution is synonymous with change. I’ve just come to set that in motion.”
