Hot 97′s Mister Cee Comes Clean in GQ Interview

MisterCEEGQPhotoFascinating piece from GQ staff writer Zach Baron in the February issue. It starts with a guided drive-through tour of the Brooklyn neighborhood that bore Calvin Lebrun, a.k.a Mister Cee, and progresses to Lebrun candidly explaining the motivations and minutiae of a sordid sex scandal.

The Daily News , a newspaper that was instrumental in bringing said scandal to the fore, got the embargoed advance look; full GQ article is here. The interview is a great primer for those who know little about Lebrun, Hot 97 and-or the lead-up to his messy, protracted downfall:

On the Kane tours, he says, he was “f*cking everything in sight.” The whole time he had a steady girlfriend, too. Once, he says, coming off tour, he gave her gonorrhea. “It was the most horrible thing I ever did to a woman in my life,” Cee says.

On the air, Cee said he was stepping down because “I never want to be in a situation where I get pushed out anywhere.”

Early this morning, the Internet erupted when a drag queen by the name of Bimbo Whinehouse (sigh) posted a recording of what he claimed was Cee soliciting him. This isn’t the first time Cee has had his name connected to solicitation; he has been arrested twice in the past for incidents involving prostitutes.
