New York City's popular HOT 97 DJ Mister Cee went on the air this morning to address his latest arrest for soliciting a male prostitute, which happened Thursday night in Brooklyn. The prostitute turned out to be an undercover police officer.
Cee now claims that the undercover officer was a woman and not a man. The deejay insists he "is not gay" but if he "choose not to come out" that would be his business, reports MTV. The deejay claims that he has "suspended himself" and will be off the air for an undisclosed period.
According to Cee, who was born Calvin Lebrun, before the arrest he was approached by an undercover female police officer when he pulled his car over in Brooklyn to make a phone call. The female offered up sex, which he denied, but Cee says he was the victim of a "sting operation." "They tried to turn it around and say the female officer was a male officer. It was a sting operation," he maintained, again refuting the gay rumors.
Things began getting a little heated when Darden casted doubt and said that Cee was using "code talk." "Let's say if I'm lying, that's my choice," Cee proposed, after a Hot 97 DJ began to play Aly-Us' "Follow Me," a '90s dance record often associated with the gay club community. "If I'm lying and I chose not to come out, that's my choice."
This is not the first time Mister Cee has been implicated with rentboys. The radio personality and producer was arrested for public lewdness in April 2011 after cops "caught him in a car receiving oral sex from another man." The deejay was also previously arrested for loitering for the purpose of prostitution.
"Cee admitted that he does regularly engage in soliciting female prostitutes and paying strippers for sex," added AllHipHop. "But reinforced that he does not seek out men or" transgender women.
Cee had his first major break in hip-hop as Big Daddy Kane’s deejay. He produced Notorious B.I.G.’s first album Ready to Die.
Mister Cee earned Power 105's "Donkey of the Day" this morning. "Come out the closet and stop trolling for trade on the streets like this is the 1970s," said Charlamagne Tha God. "This is 2013. All you need is a boyfriend and an apartment."
Good point. But would hip-hop welcome openly gay deejays, producers and artists?
