Cee-Lo will be on this weekend’s Soul Train and the show’s website features a backstage interview with the rapper. Of his his social conscience lyrics, he explained, “I believe the social consciousness implicated in my music is different because it is just that. It is an option and an alternative, as opposed to music that chooses not to address or convey a message of any sort. It’s just about mainly entertainment, which is appropriate for the business that we’re in, but I have to obey my moral obligation, so to speak, as far as my music is concerned. You know, [I] have a different callin, I guess.” The video and the transcript have since been removed from soultrain.com.
