Cee Lo Green Quotes:
It's a double-headed coin, because technology is a convenience but it's stifled our attention spans. At one time, albums had songs that were like ten minutes long, with different variations and chord progressions and changes.
Yeah, it's like a kit: you get ten or fifteen necklaces, a white T, tennis shoes, chicks and a car in the video. It's meant to represent self-sufficiency. I've heard the the claim, "I'm not a rapper, I'm a hustler." A lot of MCs have modeled themselves after that, even Jay-Z. It's given birth to this nonchalant attitude. So if someone tries to do something heartfelt, they look too hungry, almost desperate for it, and let's face it, desperation is not attractive.
