In a new promotional black-and-white documentary by Abosult Vodka and the Fader called "Cee Lo Distilled," TheBoomBox.com shares parts one and two of Cee Lo Green reflecting on his career. For one, he says, “I’m not different because I’m different. I’m different because I dare.”

 

Regarding his mom, who died when he was 17, he explains, “My entire career is my mother’s work for me.”

 

Goodie Mob’s Big Gipp remembers first meeting Cee Lo during a battle and thinking, “he was so fly because it was the first I heard somebody rapping and singing.”

 

Cee Lo, 34, shares his own memories when Goodie Mobb opened for Biggie in New York and that Diddy directed Outkast’s first video. He says once the two Atlanta groups joined forces as the Dungeon Family, they became the Dirty South.

 

Busta Rhymes says, “The importance of Cee Lo to this grand scheme of things is everything. He sets a standard of greatness and excellence."
