Mister Cee is currently on air announcing his resignation from Hot97. After already having his name in and out of headlines for the alleged solicitation of male prostitutes and denying it, the popular New York DJ has been busted once again. This time a cross dressing drag queen named Bimbo Winehouse claims to have a voicemail recording of Mister Cee soliciting him/her for sexual services.
“It’s time for me to take care of myself because there are situations when I try to do the right thing, a setback happens.”
Apparently this recent bit of evidence is enough to cause Mister Cee to take a step back from the scene.
“Today is my last day on Hot 97. Mister Cee, I’m resigning today. It is not a mystery that the past two years I’ve been through a lot and I’ve tried to deal with it the best way that I could deal with it and Hot 97 has tried to deal with it the best way they’ve had to deal with it. But when you’re dealing with corporate America and you’re dealing with a station you love as much as this station, I don’t want to put this station through more than what they’ve been through I’ve been thinking of this for a long long time.
I’ve been thinking about this day for a long time, I never want to be in a situation where I get pushed out anywhere. I’ve been at this station for 20 years since 1993 and if I’m gonna go out let me go out with me saying I’m gonna go out. Allow me to have that and so the station is allowing me to have that today and I appreciate that.”
The rap community is definitely taking an L here, and naturally this will reopen the debate about homophobia in the game as well.
Update: Mister Cee took to the airwaves today to share all and come clean about the situation. He also stated he wants his job back and will be on air at noon.
Have I lied about getting head in a car from a transsexual? Yes. I have been in denial about this for a very long time. Do I consider myself gay? No. I have gotten fellatio from transvestites. And that’s as far as it went. I never had actual sexual intercourse with another man. Or vice versa.
The person I was in the car with, I know exactly who that person is. I don’t know why he would want to harm me like this. That video is an old video, probably like the end of last year. (Bimbo Winehouse claims the video was taken 2 weeks ago.)
