Hot 97’s Mr. Cee Issues Safe Sex PSA After Male-Prostitution Arrest

by Amanda Andries

On Friday, popular New York City radio personality DJ Mr. Cee (whose real name is Calvin LeBrun) issued a PSA for The Aids Healthcare Foundation promoting the benefits of safe sex. This comes after Cee’s arrest a week ago for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover male officer posing as a prostitute.

“I can honestly say I have an addiction and that’s something I’m going to have to deal with as I move forward in my life,” said Cee in the PSA.  “Everybody is not living a righteous lifestyle out there. Even myself. What I wanted to do today is to talk about the importance of safe sex, talk about the importance of using a condom, just talking about the importance of being healthy in your life as far as taking an HIV test.”

Cee, who is also known as “The Finisher,” reportedly didn’t get time to finish, when he was arrested for trying to pick-up the male undercover cop on May 4 in the Bedstuy area in Brooklyn.  He has been charged with patronizing a prostitute in the third degree. Cee also has at least one prior conviction— stemming from charges after he was arrested in 2011 when Police found him receiving oral sex from a male prostitute named “Brook-Lyne.”

Hot 97’s program director Ebro Darden and some of the stations most popular deejays refer to Mr. Cee as “family,” and conducted an intense on-air interview with Cee, to give him a chance to explain his recurring “situation.”

“I have an addiction to getting the quickie,” Mr. Cee said to Ebro. “I am not gay.”

In the interview, Cee also said that he fully supports the gay community and  claims that the officer who approached him was a female not a male.

Since Cee’s arrest Twitter has been abuzz with commentary from Cee’s fans and haters:

“@QtipTheAbstract “Never be ashamed to be who you are just be honest with yourself.”

@RikkiMartinez “I’d like to thank Mister Cee for all he’s done for our genre & culture. Remember who brought you Biggie before you ridicule the man Hip Hop.”

@Aqua174 “Straight people think Mister Cee is buggin. Gay people think Mr. Cee is buggin. L’s all around.”

@claudiajordan “Dang! Not again Mister Cee. Can’t be an accident if it’s a habit.. just saying!”

@Who_Is_Walter “Mister Cee said if I am Lying I’m flying but it is my Choice to Fly when I lie. Gone Head Mister Cee. Tell them to mind their business!”

@LL_Cool_D “Wow Mister Cee’s interview was crazy and he def a liar he an undercover brother just say it bro it’s not that serious.”

@Momsmadeeasy “Addicted to prostitution???? Jesus take the wheel! Mister Cee I wish you wud have thought this out better. #speechless.”

Charlamange the God, a rival radio personality on competing station Power 105  dissed Cee by naming him the “Donkey of The Day.”

If Cee decides to come out of the closet and make hip-hop history, as Jason Collins did recently for sports, remains to be Cee-n…
