To be fair, he held on for quite a while, but the main event of the night was to celebrate the late Atlanta legend’s life.

CeeLo Green Falls Off Horse During Tribute Party To Shawty Lo

CeeLo Green hilariously fell off his horse during Wednesday's (March 22) tribute party to late Atlanta legend Shawty Lo. While many might find it unfortunate that such a mishap occurred on a day of remembrance, people seemed more dedicated to celebrating his life through a good time. Moreover, CeeLo decided to show everyone up by arriving on horseback, and actually held his own for some time. However, then someone startled the horse, they took a tumble, and brought the Goodie Mob MC down with them. Radio personality Lil Bankhead of V-103 captured it all, but the crowd presumably kept enjoying what would've been Shawty's 47th birthday.

Furthermore, the event took place at The BANK in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, and many other famous friends attended. For example, T.I. and DJ Street Greg were there, as were Lo's D4L partners Fabo and Mook-B. Shawty Lo tragically passed away in 2016 after a single-car accident in Fulton County. His solo albums, such as Units in the City, contributed to his already impactful legacy as a member of ATL's D4L. Their hit "Laffy Taffy" landed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006, and his solo track "Dey Know" made a big impact.

Tragically, CeeLo recently spoke on another close friend who left him far too soon: Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia. Moreover, he shared their last text message exchanges, which was an invitation for her and the rest of the rap group to be on his next Gnarls Barkley album. "I know you fought sis we love you unconditionally and we still gone ride for you baby boo," he wrote on Instagram.

"Boo is my sister," the 47-year-old expressed. "She a big Homegirl to my son he hurting we hurting! She is the queen a icon and innovator those that knew her knew that she was extremely intelligent. Hard ,real but sweet and kind at the same time. We #family round here! We all came up together and put the #south on our backs at the same time and took it to the top. I’m glad she got the opportunity to represent articulate and speak so well on all of the major platforms here recently and was given her flowers and she knew she was loved." As always, come back to HNHH for the latest on CeeLo Green. Rest In Peace Shawty Lo, Rest In Peace Gangsta Boo.
