Well, this isn’t good.
Popular New York City DJ Mister Cee was arrested on Thursday night after he was allegedly caught trying to solicit a male prostitute, according to the NY Daily News. Unfortunately for Cee, the “prostitute” was actually an undercover cop.
Cee, known for his “Throwback at Noon” and “Friday Night Live” shows on Hot 97 as well as his legendary connections with Notorious B.I.G and Big Daddy Kane, allegedly approached the man on Broadway and Madison Street in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. As the news started to spread of his arrest, residents of the area tweeted that the section is known for its “women and men of the night.”
This isn’t the first time Mister Cee, real name Calvin Lebrun, was arrested for lewd acts. In 2011, he was arrested for receiving oral sex from a man in a parked car. He plead guilty to loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.
An unfortunate situation indeed.
Ebro Darden, Program Director for Hot, took to Twitter on Saturday to seriously address the issue as well as well as drop a little joke in the midst:
Clearly, the Hot 97 family stands by Mister Cee during what is clearly a troubling time. Mister Cee has been on Instagram most of the weekend responding to fans who’ve been fairly positive in their comments and show of support.
On Monday morning, around 7:45 am, Cee will join the Hot 97 morning show (Black, Puerto Rican & Jew) for a conversation about what happened. Well, as much as he can share. It should be interesting.
Hopefully, Mister Cee’s June court appearance will settle the legal issue and he can move forward and deal with any emotional issues, if any, he has going on.
