A Funktastic Daily SAll-Star
Cee-lo Green, soul machine.
Most of you probably know Cee-lo as one half Gnarls Barkley, along with DJ Dangermouse, who produced the mega-hit Crazy in the spring of 2006. St. Elsewhere, the first album of Gnarls Barkley, was an incredibly huge success both critically and commercially and rightly so, with multiple tracks that got the funk juices flowing.
But Cee-lo has also been successful outside of his Gnarls-related endeavors. His first project was as one fourth of the Atlanta-based Goodie Mob. He then pursued a solo career that wasn't particularly successful but did produce mild hits Closet Freak (see below) and I'll Be Around. Cee-lo has also appeared on many tracks as a featured artist in collaborations with artists such as Jazze Pha and OutKast.
So, Cee-lo, keep on bringing the funk...for the children.
