With New York City deejay Mister Cee serving as one of a handful of artists who helped in establishing the career of The Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Cease says that if the late rapper were alive today he would be accepting of Mister Cee regardless of his sexual preference.
After a handful of arrests involving Mister Cee and male prostitutes over the past few years, the Hot 97 personality was thrust into the spotlight last year following his most recent arrest and even resigned from his position at Hot 97 due to the controversy surrounding his latest run-in with authorities.
Although Mister Cee has never admitted to being a gay man, those in The Mafia Dons (formerly Junior M.A.F.I.A) revealed that Biggie would have supported Cee during his recent ordeal.
“Definitely. Your friends is your friends,” Lil’ Cease said while speaking with Vlad TV. “You know what I’m saying? You got somebody you’re cool with they gonna tell you what they think the right thing to do is. I think just on the strength of their friendship Big would have supported whatever he was doing. Cause Big knows he was a major part in helping him get to where he was going in his career.”
Lil' Cease later stated that he too is accepting of Mister Cee despite his past situations or what his sexual preference may be.
“Mister Cee my homie, man. You know, that’s the home team, man,” Cease said. “Whatever his preference is is his. I’m glad he came out. Got it off his shoulders. That’s the best way to do it, man. Put it out there. Be one-hundred with it. People will accept you as you are. You know what I’m saying? At the end of the day, I ain’t got no problem with [it]…That’s that man’s decision. That’s what he do. I salute him, man. He’s still my peoples.”
During an interview with GQ, which was released at the top of this year, Mister Cee was asked if Biggie would have been supportive if the incidents from last year took place 20 years ago.
“I know Big stands next to me,” he said. “I have no question in my mind…You know who’s phony, you know who’s hypocritical, you know who’s real. So not only do I feel like Big has my back. I feel like every person that I have ridden for in their afterlife—I think they got my back as well.”
