The Hip Hop community has had a wide range of reactions to the controversial arrest of Hot 97’s Mr. Cee.
“It’s only entertaining because he means that much to Hip Hop culture and his association to it,” explained 50 to Miss Info. “I recognize Mr. Cee as the guy who offered us Biggie. So he means that much to the culture. A lot of the kids who hear the radio don’t hear him the same way. I’ve played my albums for Mr. Cee. Every album before it came out to see what he thought. When this type of stuff happens, you keep pushing.”
“When I said, ‘take the Tiger Woods route,’ means…say ‘I retire.’ Why? Why go that route? …I would’ve played the next tour! They can say what they want about it, how about if you say, ‘I’m Rick James, bitch.’ [laughs] How about if you say. ‘I don’t care?’ Who is to judge you other when there is an audience that’s probably one of the strongest audiences if you look at Lady Gaga’s career that says that that’s fine. If you say it’s not fine, then you’re gonna get attacked. You’re gonna write apology notes.”
Miss Info has declined to personally address the matter.
