      MORE FROM CEELO GREEN BELOW

      New York, NY (April 10, 2020) – Five-time Grammy award winning singer, songwriter CeeLo Green releases new music today with the first track “Lead Me” from his forthcoming album entitled “CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway” (Easy Eye / BMG). This is CeeLo’s first album in five years and for this highly anticipated next project, he has collaborated with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who took on the role of producer of this new, artistic endeavor with CeeLo. The album is out now. (UPDATED July 1, 2020)

      Dan Auerbach invited CeeLo to Nashville for some writing sessions without the intention of creating an album, but this unexpected, musical pair started vibing and walked away with a timeless record. For the first time ever while recording, CeeLo sang with a live band in the same room. It was comprised of noteworthy Nashville musicians including Gene Chrisman and Bobby Wood of the Memphis BoysRuss Paul, Dave RoeBilly Sanford, Ray Jacildo and Mike Rojas. Working closely together in the studio, the two award winning artists along with renowned writers Bobby Wood, David Ferguson, Roger Cook, and Paul Overstreet created a lyrically positive and inspiring, redemption album that is easy to listen to from start to finish. 

       

      “I didn’t walk into the studio as the artist CeeLo Green going to record songs for a new album; I went in solely as myself, the writer Thomas Callaway. CeeLo Green preforms the songs that Thomas Callaway writes,” he explains. “I’m a shaman for that old soul and it came through on this album.”

       

      The name of the album gives fans an idea of what to expect from the overall music as “Thomas Callaway” is CeeLo Green’s given name. This raw album is a real glimpse inside his true soulful character and life beyond the Gnarls persona and “Forget You” pop-sound. “CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway” is soulful, with gospel undertones and naturally was influenced by its surroundings in Nashville. It is a reflection of who Thomas Callaway is and a nod to his church-going, southern family roots. The soulful single and overall album finds CeeLo channeling luminaries like Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway and Staple Singers. 

       

      "We spent weeks writing and singing songs and we never once talked about trying to write a hit....it was so liberating. I think it freed us to where we could follow our hearts. So, we ended up singing about the things that mattered most in our lives - our kids and our loved ones and what we hope for them. We always came back to love and forgiveness and the passing of time. I feel like together we captured some very special moments on tape. For me, this record is about love, healing and peace of mind,” explains Dan Auerbach.

       

      Additionally, CeeLo Green has partnered with @LYFT to provide essential workers in his hometown of Atlanta with transportation. CeeLo is giving away rides to those who need it most. If you or someone you know has a critical need for transportation in Atlanta (i.e., hospital workers, transit workers, first responders, etc.), DM CeeLo (social handles below) and he will respond to as many essential workers possible with a discounted ride code (up to $10). The campaign launches tomorrow April 11th and will run until April 14th. #DoYourPartChallenge #LyftUp 

       

       

       

       

      A man of many talents and projects, CeeLo Green is still traveling globally preforming his solo act as well as touring with his original, rap-group Goodie Mob, but all dates have been postponed during the pandemic. Additionally, on August 11th, CeeLo will return to Las Vegas for his 3rd residency entitled “Man in the Mirror” this time at The Flamingo. He also recently appeared on WEtv’s “Marriage Bootcamp” alongside his lifetime partner Shani James, which was also a glimpse into his real life as Thomas Callaway. 

       

      As CeeLo’s lyric states in his single ‘Lead Me’, please remember during this unpredictable time in the world that, “It doesn’t matter where we started, just as long as we finish together.

      OMB Peezy: Watches Make Him Claustrophobic

      OMB Peezy: Watches Make Him Claustrophobic

      OMB Peezy is in his own lane in the rap game. Hailing from the projects in Mobile, Alabama and relocated to Sacramento, California would give him the best of both worlds, combining that hard-hitting West Coast production to that Southern trap sound. With his 2017 single “Lay Up” cementing his name in the industry, the 23-year-old continues to bless his very loyal fanbase.


      Most recently, Peezy released the visual for “Let Up,” along with a joint EP with producer DrumDrummie called In The Meantime. The project is meant to hold fans over until his TOO DEEP FOR TEARS tape arrives.


      King Ice caught up with Peezy via Instagram Live who took  a break from getting his hair done to show off his iced out Overkill Peezy chain.


      Do you have a favorite chain?

      Yeah, I’ll show you. This motherfucker right here, this my baby. No rap cap. Badabing Badaboom. You see that Overkill right? I wear it out every day. You have to show the people that you’re working with something.


      Do you like watches?

      Not going to lie, I’m claustrophobic. I don’t really like things on my wrists or on my face. When that face mask thing came up, damn how the fuck am I supposed to wear a face mask all day? I can’t do it.

      Bankrol Hayden: "First Thing I Bought was a Rollie"

      Bankrol Hayden: "First Thing I Bought was a Rollie"

      Bankrol Hayden is here to put on for Modesto. The 18-year-old has been through hell and back, and you can hear it in his music. After surviving a near fatal car accident two years prior where Hayden was in the back seat and his two friends had passed, the “29” recording artist is determined to go crazy, thanks to the second chance God had gifted him.


      Most recently, he tapped Kid Laroi for the “Costa Rica” remix and released his new single “Rich Bitch.” The latter he describes as something small for the fans, to hold them over until the release of his forthcoming project Pain Is Temporary.


      King Ice caught up with Bankrol Hayden to discuss his Rolex which was stationed upstairs in the house in Malibu he was temporarily recording at.


      How’s that Atlantic Records bag looking?

      It’s cool, I fuck with Atlantic tough. They’re going hard for me. 


      What did you do with your first advance? 

      Shit, the first thing I bought was a Rollie. It’s upstairs [shows the light-up box]. Really clothes. I don’t really spend my money like that, I be chillin’. 


      How often do you wear the Rollie?

      I try not to wear it too much all the time. I’ve been wearing it recently. I got it in Atlanta, Atlanta’s dope. It feels good, it's like a little trophy for me.

      Mikey Polo: The "Best Artist in the World Right Now"

      Mikey Polo: The "Best Artist in the World Right Now"

      Mikey Polo describes himself as the “best artist in the world right now,” alongside his bro Trippie Redd. While living with Trippie and being part of his 1400 Gang is a ball in itself, Mikey has his own movement: Emo Gang.


      Mikey is a walking ball of light, decked out in face tates, vibrant colors, and he loves skinny jeans. When it comes to his sound, “emo-slime” is the best description. Most recently, the 25-year-old was able to travel overseas to Europe with Trippie, but the Coronavirus pandemic shut everything down.


      King Ice caught up with Mikey in downtown Los Angeles to discuss his love for chains and why he never takes them off.

      Talk about all your chains you got on.

      I don’t got ‘em all on. I got the RR, it stands for Real Right. It looks like the Rolls Royce symbol but it has the swords at the bottom. Everybody who knows me knows what Real Right stands for. I got the TRAP: take risks and prosper. This right here is the skeleton, I used the skeleton mold. I like skeletons, I can't help it. Skulls are my favorite.


      Do you always wear those chains?

      Yeah, I pretty much don't take them off ever. I shower with them, go to sleep with them, all that. If you can’t shower with your chains on, then you’re a bum. That's how I look at it. If you’re a rapper and you want to wear diamonds, if you can’t get in the pool and you can't get in the shower with your chain on, your neck’s going to turn green.

      What about when you’re making love?

      I fuck with my chains on. I definitely do, trust me. I fuck with the ring on, the chains on, everything. I say it in my music, “I fuck her with my chain on.” Sometimes she wants see the ice glistening while you’re looking up, you never know. [laughs]

       

       

      SKOOLY Drops $38,000 On His Watch 🔥

      SKOOLY Drops $38,000 On His Watch 🔥

      While you may recognize Skooly as 2 Chainz, he’s actually been in the rap game since the age of 14. Coming up as part of Atlanta rap group Rich Kidz, his transition into his solo artistry was seamless. In fact, the real ones know how much of an influence he has on the new generation, creating a lane where he can both sing and rap and make it sound good.


      Most recently, the 25-year-old released his new tape titled Nobody Likes Me, showcasing his truest, deepest feelings and emotions about where he stands as both an artist and human being. The project hails standout single “Go,” which he created for both females and gangsters to dance to.


      King Ice caught up with Skooly via Instagram Live to discuss his chains and very shiny AP.


      Can you show us your chains?

      This is a 6, with a halo on top of it. I got this from Golden Sun in Detroit, along with my watch. This is an AP, the Royal Oak Offshore collection. This is actually big for me and monumental. My man Blow got this for me, he's locked up right now. Free him, he'll be home soon. 


      How much is that AP?

      Skooly: It's not as new as the new rappers, but I have original VS1 stones in here. This is like $37K to $38K.
