An event commemorating what wouldn’t been the late “Dey Know” rapper’s 47th birthday was held at The BANK in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday night (March 22).
CeeLo — who hosted the party — rode in on a horse to everyone’s surprise, but didn’t appear to be too comfortable when the colt started acting agitated as it entered the packed and loud nightclub.
The Goodie Mob legend’s equestrian flex backfired when he flew right off the horse’s back after its legs buckled. CeeLo tried to play it off and parlay his tumble into some dance moves, but the damage was done as he quickly became the butt of several jokes.
Footage of the fall was posted to social media by V-103 radio personality Lil Bankhead, who ignited a field day with CeeLo’s spill.

Everyone continued to party the night away in Shawty Lo’s honor, who was tragically killed in a single-car accident in Fulton County back in 2016.
Several other notable names were in attendance for the all-black affair on Wednesday, including T.I., DJ Greg Street and D4L members Fabo and Mook-B.
During his career, Shawty Lo released two solo albums including his 2008 debut Units in the City, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 and was powered by his aforementioned hit “Dey Know.”
The Bowen Homes icon was also part of the ATL foursome D4L, which reached the Billboard Hot 100’s apex in 2006 thanks to their infectious “Laffy Taffy” anthem.
