Cee Lo and three guys from Atlantaâ€”Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gippâ€”came together in Atlanta, GA in 1991 to form what is now remembered as one of the most influential Southern hip-hop groups of all-time. Promoting a message of thought provoking change with insightful lyrics, the Atlanta-based rap quartet released their debut album, Soul Food, in 1995. As a reflection of significant community issues portrayed through song, the groupâ€™s debut LP reached No. 8 on Billboardâ€™s R&B Albums chart. Over time, the album went on to sell more than 500,000 copies.
Three years later, Cee Lo and his counterparts released their sophomore album, Still Standing, which also went on to sell over 500,000 units. The project went to the top of the Billboard charts, reaching No. 2 on the R&B Albums chart and No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. Since then, the group has released two more albumsâ€”World Party (1999) and One Monkey Donâ€™t Stop No Show (2004)â€”and is rumored to be working on their first album in almost a decade.
