In 1997, Greenwood was featured in The Washington Post weekend section.
After releasing his demo tape, Cope was signed to Capitol Records, where he recorded Shotguns. In 1998, he was dropped from Capitol, without releasing the album.
In 2000, Greenwood signed with the DreamWorks Records label, which released his first album in September 2002, Citizen Cope. To promote the record, Greenwood toured as an opener for Nelly Furtado. He performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, in 2002.
The Washington Post did a large feature on Cope in early 2002, declaring Greenwood the most soulful artist since Marvin Gaye.
In October 2002, Carlos Santana released his record titled Shaman. Greenwood wrote and produced one of the tracks on that album.
After the release of Citizen Cope, Greenwood felt that the label «mishandled» the record. Tension between the label and artist prompted Greenwood to buy out his contract with the label, using the advance he received from his next label, Arista Records and RCA Records, to do so.
In September 2004, Citizen Cope released his second record, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, which became an underground classic. The album has sold more than 273,000 records to date, without any commercial or college radio play. From 2004 through 2008, Citizen Cope endured a heavy tour schedule.
