Mister Cee took to the Hot 97 airwaves today to announce his resignation from Hot 97 after new allegations arose about him soliciting a prostitute. This is not the first time Mister Cee has been involved in this type of situation.
A transsexual prostitute who goes by the name Bimbo Winehouse posted a video today, picked up by Bossip, which allegedly captures the audio of his interaction with Mister Cee, who picked him up in his car and offered $100 for sex. The video, which we’ve included below, made the rounds on social media today, and now the 20-year Hot 97 veteran—who made his name as an associate producer on Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die and as an early champion of many of Brooklyn’s breakout hip-hop stars—is resigning from his long-time post at the station.
“It is not a mystery that the past two years I’ve been through a lot,” he said on the air today after announcing that it’d be his last day. “When you dealing with corporate America, and you dealing with a station you love as much as I love this station, you don’t want to put them through this…I’ve been thinking about this day for a long time. I never want to be in a situation where I’m pushed out. I’ve been at this station for 20 years, since 1993. If I want to go out, allow me to say I’m going out. And the station is allowing me to have that, and I appreciate that.”
XXL will update this story with any further developments.
“Ain’t nobody perfect man,” he said. “And I’m far from perfect. I’ve made my mistakes, but when it affects the people that you love, the people that you come up with…I’m just gonna move on.”
