Hot 97's DJ Mister Cee took to the airwaves this morning to address his newest arrest for solicitation of a prostitute. And while reports state it was a male prostitute Cee approached, the legendary DJ is denying it all. And for the second time, he's blaming cops & media for lying.
Cee's story about the prostitute actually being a female, plus his admission of having "problems with desiring prostitutes," inside....
We weren't sure how DJ Mister Cee was going to talk his way out of this one. But he damn sure tried this morning.
In an "interview" with Hot 97's Ebro (who is the programming director but likes to get in on the drama whenever he can) a little over an hour ago, Cee talked (and talked and talked) about what REALLY went down Thursday night/Friday morning that led to his arrest.
He admits to loving strippers and prostitutes due to a long time personal issue that started with an ex girlfriend over a decade ago (yeah, he tried it), but he was reluctant to admit to having an actual addiction to prostitutes.
And since this is the second PUBLIC time (third total) he's been arrested for allegedly soliciting a MALE prostitute, you would think he would simply fess up to being a gay man. Instead, just like back in 2011, Cee said the cops and media lied. He says the undercover cop was a female Latina. And it's all a conspiracy to keep her identity protected (yup, he tried it again).
Here's the highlights of Cee exposing himself in true addict form--he's got an explanation for everything and it's "all a conspiracy." Even his Hot 97 fam sounded doubtful of his explanations and begged him to simply be free and be himself because they would love him either way.

On why it was reported each time male prostitutes were involved
Thursday night/Friday morning, I was approached by a female, Latino undercover cop. Not a male cop. The female Latino cop, I have her badge number so I know who it is....The first story that came out in the Daily News said it was a female undercover officer and you can research and see that that story was posted [Editor's Note: We did not and still do not see this alleged "original story"]. Then they changed it soon after to male undercover officer. I have no idea why it changed.
I understand that cops have a job to do. She was undercover and she has to protect herself. She's going to have to be sequestered and I'm going to have to fight the case.
On whether or not he's gay
No, I am not gay. I have not engaged in homosexual activity. Out of the three incidents that happened in the past with me, there was only one person's name brought up that was a male.
If you do your research and look at the incident that happened in 2011, that male person put out 2 different videos. The first video was about him saying he doesn't know Mister Cee. Then, he did another with a comedian saying 'Yes, I was with Cee and he has a small penis.' If you do your research, you will see those two interviews.
On if he's covering up for being gay
No, I love the gay community. I always embrace those people who don't have that much power to be loud. Back when the Haiti thing happened, I was doing so much for the Haitians. I embrace the gay community more than you know.
On why these male prostitution/solicitation stories keep coming out
Shout out to the 83rd precinct in BK. They took care of me and what I'm going to say is not a reflection on all police. But the police's job is to build a case against me. And it's my job to build a case for myself.
In 2011, I pleaded guilty tot he prostitution case (which a male prostitute was also named with pictures in the ACTUAL police report) because it was too much money to keep going back and forth. And also because I have a family--both my family and my Hot 97 family and I didn't want to put y'all through the mud. Not because I like men, but because of all the court procedures I didn't want to go through.
But on the three occasions I've been arrested on solicitation charges, only one has been said to be a man. Where are the other names? And have y'all stopped to think about where that person is now? There's something to that.
On why he was even in the place (Madison & Broadway in BK) KNOWN to be crawling with transgendered prostitutes
Yes, I do like prostitutes. I have engaged a lot with prostitutes in my life many times. Same with strippers. I've tricked on them many times. But I happened to be in the area on Thursday. It was a beautiful day for me. Everything that had happened around this time in 2011, I didn't feel like my Hot 97 fam had my back. There were people telling me I shouldn't be on that Summer Jam stage. But on Thursday, I was in a great mood. So it just so happened I was in that area after leaving a party. I didn't know that corner is where prostitutes hung out.
On his account of what happened that night
I was leaving an after work party nearby and I remembered I needed to call somebody I said I would call earlier. I pulled over to call, and it was on the corner of Madison and Broadway, and I was approached by a female Latina undercover officer (who he claims was NOT scantily clad and was dressed regularly). So I rolled down the window.
(Cee was asked why he rolled down his window for anyone at midnight and he said he's not too stuck up to say Hi to somebody)
She offered to have oral sex. I can't say too much because I have to go back to court. But she said pull up to the corner. I said no and started to pull off, and all hell broke loose.
On why he keeps soliciting prostitutes
It's because of what I've been going thru the last 10-12 years of my life. Back in 2001, I was in a serious committed relationship (a girlfriend) with a young lady and I'm not going to say her name. About that time, my life started to change into wanting hit it & quit it type relationships. I was going into strip clubs and things. Then I wanted to get prostitutes. I got in a rut. The more I started getting into that activity, the more I wanted it versus the traditional way of getting to know regular women.
I found myself not trusting women as much. I found myself not wanting women to get closer to me in my world. I started seeing how my friends were getting jammed up in their marriages and relationship and I said that's not going to be me. If I get to a point where me and a woman get too close, I push her away. I have trust issues with women.
For me to have gotten caught 3 times. In relation to all the times I frequent prostitutes, it's really not surprising.
On whether he ever realized he is Mister Cee and too "known" to be soliciting prostitutes on the street
I don't drink and I don't smoke. I'm in my right mind. But sometimes in my weird sadistic way, I don't really know how big "Mister Cee" is. I don't understand the enormity of who I am.
On if he's addicted to prostitutes
I don't have an addiction to prostitutes. I have an addiction to instant gratification. I need help. I been dealing with it and trying to deal with it for the last 10-12 years.
On getting help for his prostitution problem
If ya'll want to fire me or get rid of me, I understand that. No company should have to be subjected to the the of negative activity I've been bringing to this company the last couple years. I'm getting help. I go to therapy and I'm dealing with it.
If you say so Cee. But we all have a few secrets in us we don't want everyone to know for whatever reason...
BONUS: Just like back in 2011, Cee's enemy & rival radio host Charlamagne Da God went in on the DJ this morning. Check out Char's Donkey of the Day where he calls him a serial purchaser of the penis. I'm done.
