I think crossing over (especially when you want to attract white audiences) will always involve a degree of selling out...it just varies depending on the situation imo.

It is hard not to think he sold out. If it was just the music, it'd be one thing, but he left his homies behind (Goodie Mobb). He left his wife of over a decade (Christina Johnson) and he completely changed his style of music. All of those things together seem...questionable. I'm not judging Cee Lo, but I see where his critics are coming from.

we were just talking about Ceelo!  and our shock that he was in love with Lauryn. Almost made a thread about him.

Does anyone plan to read his memoir?

I dunno...cee lo is still a nicca. Undercover nicca, maybe. But a nicca nonetheless. Still with his black wife girlfriend..loves and supports his black kids..hmm.
