Listening to Outkast right now. I think I'll give them my vote here.

It's close for me. I have Public Enemy at 1A and Beastie Boys and 1B.

I think the Beastie Boys have had the better, more consistent career. Licensed to Ill was a game changer (even if you're not a huge fan, like me) and Paul's Boutique is as good an example of using samples in rap as we've ever seen. However, they lose just a few points because they can occasionally stray outside of rap.

Public Enemy may have been a shooting star, burning out after their incredible first 4 albums. But you can make a solid, legit argument that It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and Fear of a Black Planet are both top 5 rap albums of all time. The political vitriol is something no other artist in history, maybe with the exception of Bob Dylan, could communicate so well. It's a shame Flavor Flav has the reputation that he does today. While he was the court jester with his viking helmet, clocks and YEAAAAAHHH BOIIII!!!; he made it that Chuck D could deliver his social critique that set him apart from just about any rappers back then and today.

Isn't Ceelo Green more Neo-soul/contemporary R&B, than hip hop or rap?

He has a unique voice and style, but he still has a ways to go, as for having a very mature and sophisticated sounding style. Some of his music just gets to "Bubblegum" for me.

I don't think he has found his true personality musically yet. Maybe he never will go beyond singing for 12 and 13 year old girls. Who knows? or cares.

What about CeeLo Greens solo work at the present time? OutKast and Goodie Mob are some of his prior work.
I'm not trying to be argumentative, just asking about his current ongoing solo career? (I'm not really familiar with a lot of his music until just recently). Is his work still mainly hip hop music?

PS. Thanks for the information concerning his connection to OutKast and Goodie Mob. I didn't know that until now.

Yes his most recent solo stuff is more contemporary R&B/Neo Soul

His past solo albums are considered more alternative hip hop though.

His unique style is what makes him so good to people, the whole singing to 12-13 year old girls thing I don't get. I guess you are basing that off of his radio single and not the album itself. Listen to Lady Killer then see if you still think the same way.
