Last Thursday night, my co-worker and hip hop legend DJ Mister Cee was arrested and charged with allegedly soliciting prostitution from a male undercover cop in Brooklyn. He appeared on the Hot97 Morning Show today to talk to Ebro (who is both a member of the morning show cast as well as the program director for the station), Cipha Sounds, Peter Rosenberg and Kay Foxx. Along with stating that he is not gay, Cee said that the undercover cop was a Latina woman, and that he is taking time off from his Hot97 duties while he continues to get therapy for his use of prostitutes.
Video of the interview is forthcoming, but until then, we have transcribed some of the key quotes from the interview…
Ebro: This time around, now that it’s a reoccurring incident…your preference doesn’t matter to us, you’re our brother, but what’s scary for us, is that there are crimes being committed, if you need our help our support, we’re here for that…
I know it’s a scary place and in hip hop there’s this whole bravado…and being in denial…in your heart, you’re a good person, you’re not out trying to hurt anybody but a lot of people have negative things to say. We just want to make sure that you’re okay.
Here’s what everybody wants to know…are you gay?
Mister Cee: I am not gay. I’m looking in your eyes, I’m looking in Cipha Sounds’ eyes, Rosenberg’s eyes, Kay Foxx’s eyes. I am not gay.
Ebro: Why then, male prostitutes?
Mister Cee: Thursday night, friday morning, I was approached (there are certain things I can say) I was approached by a female latino undercover cop. Not a male cop. I have her badge number, so I know who she is. If you do your diligence, your rsch, the first story that came out in the Daily News, it was female undercover officer. Then from out of nowhere it changed to male undercover officer…I don’t know why it changed to that.
