From Publishers Weekly

Pop star Cee Lo calls himself a sensitive and magical child feeling lost and terribly alone in the wilderness in his outrageous new memoir, assisted by his longtime pal Big Gipp and writer David Wild. Born to a hardworking nurse in Atlanta, Thomas DeCarlo Burton (aka Cee Lo) remembers both the hard knocks of his early life, the death of his father when Cee Lo was two years old, and hearing the mysterious sounds of a visitation from the Good God of the Holy Groove in his grandmother's living room. He was always a fancy dresser, a self-described half-angel-half-devil, who dropped acid, smoked grass, and shoplifted as a young tough. Influenced by the likes of James Brown, Jackie Wilson, Bill Withers, Tupac, and Prince, he created an outsized, flamboyant persona, which, along with his soulful voice, enthralled audiences. He eventually became a judge on the hit TV show The Voice. Brassy, often snarky, and totally madcap, Cee Lo mouths off in this ribald tell-all, to the enjoyment of his fans and newbies everywhere. (Oct.)

Great biography on CeeLo and a bit of a bonus insight into other artists in the Dungeon Family. I've always appreciated the music of not just CeeLo as a solo artist but Goodie Mob as a group and I have a much greater appreciation of him as a artist.

Cee-Lo has had an interesting life, but this is not a good book. He tries to use creative wordplay and puns but it feels forced and hard to read. I groaned in agony while reading most of it and skipped sentences because I just couldn't hear the CLICHES!!! I've been a fan since Goodie Mob. If you have too, then stay a fan and dont read this awful book. Big Gipp has a few pages every chapter and I found his wiring to be more honest and straight to the point and at least bearable. Ok here's a gem from Cee-lo:
'If life gives you lemons, then you dang sure better find a different delicious flavor of lemonade to sell.'
That is the kind of writing that plagues this book!

This is a "Crazy" good book by one of the most interesting and colorful characters around these days. It's also an inspiring look at how an underdog overcame huge odds and rose right to the top and shared his powerful voice with the world.

This was interesting on many levels. Yes it went in detail about Cee-lo, it is a biography, but he did it in a very entertaining way, as if telling a fairytale. Another interesting point is the many other stars he knew and hung out with and grew up with before they too were stars. It makes you wonder what they put in the water in that neighborhood. If you're interested in Cee-lo or music in general, this would be a good read to check out.

I bought this book because I've been a fan of his since his time with Goodie Mob. This book took me on the journey of his beautifully interesting life and the many ways he's found the good in an unpredictable world. There are so many facets to this "mutant" man and I encourage everyone to read this book and take the journey with him.
