Mister Cee was recently profiled by GQ for a feature that focuses on his life, sexual orientation, legal issues and legacy. In the article, Mister Cee discusses how he began paying people for sexual acts.
“The best way I can explain it is that I was so knee-deep into doing it that it became a part of me,” he says in the GQ article. “It’s also the rush of: Get horny, A and B—you know, one plus one equals two. You get horny, go out, go get your shit. It became a part of my routine. Even though I was fearful, there was a part of me that felt invincible, too.”
In the article, Mister Cee is also asked if he is a homosexual person. When asked if he is gay, Mister Cee says: “Absolutely not. And it’s nothing—it’s no offense to transgender women, but I only get with transgender women for one thing and one thing only, and that’s for oral sex. Like I said: I never had sex with a man. I never had sex with a transgender woman.”
In the article, Cee also discusses the legal issues that could result from having sex with prostitutes.
“If I get arrested right now for that same type of activity, I’m doing sixty days in jail, hands down, done,” he says.
Mister Cee Says He Feels The Notorious B.I.G. Has His Back
During the article, Mister Cee also addresses how some of his past collaborators may feel about his life today. He is asked if his past collaborator and an emcee he helped discover, The Notorious B.I.G., would understand. An excerpt from the magazine with his answer follows:
I ask if Biggie would’ve understood, had this happened twenty years ago. “Oh, I know that,” Cee says instantly. “I know Big stands next to me. I have no question in my mind.” I ask him why he’s so sure, and he says it’s because they were friends, first, but also because hip-hop is such a transparent thing to those who’ve lived it: “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,” Cee says, “I feel like every person that I have ridden for in their afterlife—I think they got my back as well.”
In the article, Mister Cee also says he forgives J. Cole for rapping about his situation.
“J. Cole, if you’re reading this: I have forgiven you for the ‘Forbidden Fruit’ line, and we can move on,” Cee says in the article.
“The same reason they call Mister Cee ‘The Finisher,'” J. Cole raps on “Forbidden Fruit.” “Forbidden fruit, watch for the Adam’s apple.”
In 2013, Mister Cee spoke about his sexual orientation.
“Do I consider myself gay?” he said at the time. “No. I don’t consider myself gay. I do, I have gotten fellatio…from transvestites and that’s as far as it went…I’ve never had actual sexual intercourse with another man, and visa versa. That has never been done to me. But I have had fellatio, that’s the best way I could put it, with a transsexual person.”
In 2011, Mister Cee pled guilty to public lewdness and exposure charges after being arrested for allegedly engaging in a sexual act with a man in a parked car. In May, Mister Cee was arrested in New York City after allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover male police officer posing as a prostitute.
