The hip-hop gossip mill went into overtime this past weekend when Mister Cee, a veteran hip-hop producer (Notorious B.I.G.'s "Ready To Die") and DJ at New York's Hot 97, was arrested for misdemeanor public lewdness and indecent exposure. According to a police report published by the Smoking Gun, Mister Cee (real name: Calvin Lebrun) was caught performing a sex act with a 20-year-old male in a car in Manhattan.
Although the news has surprised many -- and even resulted in some throwing homophobic slurs his way -- one of New York's biggest rappers, 50 Cent, is defending Mister Cee and saying that he would "make him my DJ any day."
"It's only entertaining because he means that much to hip-hop culture," 50 Cent tells Hot 97 personality Miss Info in an audio clip posted on her blog. "I recognize Mister Cee as the guy who offered us Biggie, so he means that much to the culture. And a lot of the kids that hear the radio don't see him the same way."
