Born Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, Cee Lo Green arrived on the Southern rap scene as the sugar-voiced counterpart to Atlanta-based hip-hop outfit Goodie Mob, with whom he released 1995's Soul Food, 1998's Still Standing and 1999's World Party. Green eventually parted ways with Goodie Mob to pursue a solo career, signing with Arista Records.
In 2000 Green appeared on OutKast's Stankonia, which earned a GRAMMY for Best Rap Album. Two years later he released his debut solo album, Cee Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections, which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200. In 2004 he emerged with Cee Lo Green … Is The Soul Machine, which featured highly regarded producers such as Timbaland, Jazze Pha and the Neptunes, as well as production work by Green himself.
In 2006 Green earned greater mainstream success when he teamed with producer Danger Mouse for Gnarls Barkley. The soul duo's debut, St. Elsewhere, climbed to No. 4 on the strength of the GRAMMY-winning hit "Crazy" and won a GRAMMY for Best Alternative Music Album. "Crazy" dominated radio playlists in summer 2006 and was followed by the duo's sophomore effort, 2008's The Odd Couple, which peaked at No. 12.
Green returned to his solo career with the release of 2010's The Lady Killer, spawning the mega hit "F*** You," which won Green his first GRAMMY as a solo artist. In October 2012 he released the holiday album CeeLo's Magic Moment and peaked in the Top 40 on the Billboard 200. In March 2013 Green launched his CeeLo Green is Loberace Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood.
