Hot 97 Jock Mister Cee Arrested for Public Lewdness

Mister Cee, the Hot 97/WQHT DJ and famed rap producer, was arrested on charges pertaining to oral sex with another man.

The New York Daily News reports Mister Cee, whose real name is Calvin Lebrun, 44, and a male companion, Lawrence Campbell, 20, were arrested Wednesday morning, March 30.

Both men were charged with public lewdness and exposure of a person. They were released after their arraignment and are due back in court in June.

On Hot 97, he hosts Throwback at Noon, a classic hits hour.

Rumors began to swirl over the weekend that the alleged incident involved Cee with a transgender person. However, rallying to his friend’s defense, fellow Hot 97 jock Funkmaster Flex squelched those allegations on his blog, inflexwetrust.com.

“Please be advised this rumor is not true,” he wrote. “Stating false allegations about somebody and presenting it as valid information is unethical. Please continue to listen to Mr. Cee everyday at noon Monday through Friday on Hot 97 and Hot97.com.”

The NYPD told the Daily News that Cee was picked up in lower Manhattan on October 8 and November 20, both times for loitering for the purpose of prostitution.

FishbowlNY attempted to reach Hot 97 for a comment.
