CeeLo Green's 'TV on the Radio' Project Surfaces Out of Nowhere: Listen
While no one was looking, a new album by CeeLo Green titled TV on the Radio made its way onto the Internet.
The nine-song project, uploaded to a CEELO_TVONTHERADIO Soundcloud account two days ago, features Green rapping and singing over famous TV theme songs, including Taxi, Knight Rider, Peanuts and more.
Question is: Where did this come from?
CeeLo Green has gone into a virtual abyss since September, after he tweeted questionable statements on rape such as, "Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent."
Green deleted the tweets, deactivated his account and then restored it without the offensive tweets.
The stream of tweets came shortly after Green pleaded no contest to a felony count of slipping ecstasy into a woman's drink in 2012. The woman also accused the rapper of sexually assaulting her, but there wasn't sufficient evidence to charge him of that crime.
Perhaps Green uploaded the new music onto Soundcloud to not go through the hassle of getting the samples of the TV theme songs cleared.
A representative for CeeLo has yet to respond to Billboard's request for a comment.
