Cee Lo Shares Memories of Mom, Music in New Documentary


In a new mini-doc by Absolut Vodka, Cee Lo Green shares the secrets of his ever-growing success. Check out the sleek black-and-white two-part ‘Distilled’ doc for his wisdom, exclusive performance footage, cameos from Goodie Mob and Busta Rhymes and just a tad of product placement.

The rapper-turned-singer gives fans the back story to his song, ‘F— You,’ recalling how it hit the airwaves during Cee Lo’s flight to London and by the time he landed, “It was a hit record.” On a touching note, the southern gentleman tributes his mom, whose death has profoundly effected him: “My entire career is my mother’s work for me.”

Taking some jabs at the “boring” state of music today, Cee Lo delivers some epic, self-assured quips. “We must set a higher standard for our art,” he says, adding a comment about his cross-genre success. “I wasn’t born a poet to be passive.”

See Cee Lo and his newest incarnation when he plays Raekwon‘s father in an upcoming Wu-Tang Clan biopic.
