Ceelo might be doing pop right now but he has atleast 1 classic HIP HOP album under his belt with Goodie Mob. Ceelo can outrap half these dudes out right now.


I been saying this for the longest...thakyou Cee-Lo Green.


What a beautiful song...no wonder many people in here sound like their faces have turned red after Cee-Lo's comments.


I know our family on here remember before Cee-lo emasculated himself he was a pioneer with that Soulful Southern semi-conscious rap...the Good Die Mostly Over Bullsh*t.

Hes an OG I respect his contributions to the culture and appreciate his wisdom, keep in mind he is an insider speaking as an artist and not an outsider speaking as a fan so his words trump the naysayers.


Jimmy Iovine said Iggy Azalea is the new Tupac, Asher Roth got a Def Jam deal before Donny Goines...they have rappers from Detroit who dress up like circus clowns when they rap. A rapper named Necro made a r*pe-rap video and now rappers dress in full drag and allow nekkid men to sit on their faces.....


Polluted & Diluted.


HipHop, more specifically rap-culture used to be like an exclusive fraternity were you represented for your neighborhood, city, state, and your people....street poetry expressing yourself to your extended family around the way, and around the country and even around the world.


Now that it's been infiltrated and infested, commercialized and homogenized, the floodgates are open and all the K-Feds & V-nasty's are salivating at the opportunity to strip it completely of it's essence until all of it's cultural relevance is lost.


The Streets the Struggle and the Soul was the essence....now it's Suburban, Sickening, and just downright Shady.



Amen

He's right , go back and listen to that Soul Food , you used to have to have lyrics, something of substance. Now , you dont need anything hardly , just blabber on about meaningless BS. IMO , but Cee-Lo been out the game for a minute, but he has paid his dues .

Hold on... you saying Nas never dumbed down, and made dumbass pop songs with garbage subject matter?

Were you alive in the late 90's? That's all Nas did for a good 4 years.

Owe me back..

Cee Lo is right, and it's also obvious who here is too young to know about Goodie Mob. Cee Lo can talk trash about rap all he wants. A) The sh*t is true, and B) it's already known if he wanted to constrict his style, and drop a 16 (his style evolved past rap, honestly), he could still do it, and it would be better than 90% of sh*t out. Be real.

No one is saying there weren't gimmick rappers in the 80's and 90's but there was BALANCE.

We had:
Nas
Jay
Big
Pac
Wu-Tang
Redman
Outkast
Goodie Mob
NWA
Snoop
Scarface
DMX
Ma$e
LL Cool J
Run DMC
KRS-One

just to name a few. Which artists from 2005-2012 can be included in that list?

More importantly, you would hear more of my list on radio and tv than you would the gimmick list.

1 thing I disagree with in this thread is that you have to be from the streets. If a n*gga come out spittin like Big L, Biggie, Pac, & Nas all rolled into 1 rapper, yall gonna discredit him for not being from the streets?

And I love you all, unconditional, I get misty already missing y'all
And then I forgive those who rhyme to k!ll the time
While mine cultivate the consciousness and
Chill the spine, heal the mind, yet still sublime

My fav cee lo joint. Anyone questioning his rapping ability needs to stop.

Ceelo is still at the top of the game skill wise. He's like 3stacks. Of course he can get on tracks and rip n*ggaz while droping knowledge but his heart ain't never been in rap, its in making amazing music.
