Last week, Hot 97’s DJ Mister Cee resigned, then came back to the station less than a day later, after more allegations of his dabbling with trans men came to light. The Brooklyn native sat down with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to speak somewhat candidly about his sexuality and what it means for him, and Hip-Hop.
In a morning show interview with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, Cee admitted to seeking out and receiving fellatio from trans men. In the new PSA, Big Daddy Kane’s old DJ says doing so was a weight off his shoulders.
“With the grace of family and good friends around me, they made me feel comfortable to exercise my human right of sexual freedom. Instead of finding myself being self-detained by discrimination, judgement, criticism and even violence from my own community,” says Mister Cee.
We do commend Mister Cee for speaking out. However, many will point to the fact that he only did so after salacious rumors, and arrests, came about as a reason to doubt his sincerity.
Let us know what you think in the comments. Watch Mister Cee’s PSA below.
