  • Lyrics
  • Long before he was a member of Gnarls Barkley and a coach on The Voice, Cee-Lo Green was one quarter of the acclaimed Atlanta crew, the Goodie Mob. The four members reunited to record their fifth album, Age Against The Machine, which included this track about Cee Lo's first love affair with a white woman. "It shouldn't even be a taboo," he said at the album's listening party. "So if you're mad, you're probably a racist."
