whoa kids. chill out - stuff is getting personal in here. Cee-lo is a very good lyricst and so is Andre - but they deliever different messages Cee-Lo's rhymes and messages in his songs are a little more design for the people - Andre writes and creates for himself - the people listening will take from it what they will. And far wise as them being able to play an insturment - yeah - I don't know. Don't care. Enjoy them both for what they bring and quit being worried on the likeness of their art.
