Cee Lo and Goodie M.O.B. Starring in UK Reality Show


Cee Lo is one of the hardest working artists in the music industry. Along with judging NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ performing around the country and appearing in 7-Up commercials, Cee Lo Green is adding reality television star to his resume. The New York Times reports that the Atlanta rapper turned Pop star signed a contract with Mark Burnett (‘Survivor’, ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, ‘The Voice’) for a reality show called ‘Cee Lo Takes the U.K.’

The show—which has already started airing (but you have to be across the pond to watch)—trails Cee Lo and the reunited Goodie M.O.B. as they record a new album while taking in British culture.

The focus of the Times article is Cee Lo’s breakout success—he earned over $20 million dollars this year—and how he became a household name. Cee Lo’s management company, Primary Wave, was established in 2006. and along with his talent and star power, is responsible for the singer’s high visibility. Also worth noting, in September of this year, Primary Wave merged with Chris Lighty’s Violator Management.

“I’m still just a working-class artist, basically,” said the “Forget You” (you know the actual title) singer.
