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.”
