Spin: “Can Hip-Hop Man Up? Mr. Cee vs. Homophobia.”


This week’s column is a continuation of last week’s discussion of hip-hop and homophobia via Mister Cee’s arrest. I’m trying to chart a sense of how rap’s dealing with homosexuality that started with this Sound Of The City piece and really, it’s not doing that bad! Like a lot of the country, it’s still got far to go, but it’s getting there.

The arrest of Calvin “DJ Mister Cee” LeBrun for public lewdness and indecent exposure is a sad, but unique opportunity to continue last week’s discussion about gay hip-hop and rap’s longstanding homophobia. For those who hide from SEO-obsessed gossip blogs and endlessly snarky morning-zoo radio, and as a result, haven’t yet heard, around 4AM on March 30, police spotted Mister Cee in his car, allegedly receiving oral sex from a man. As could’ve been expected, the incident soon became fodder for jokes and a mini-controversy ensued.

This Tuesday, the police report was released; it does confirm the charges, and at the very least, complicates Cee’s Twitter statements that nothing happened. It’s also worth noting that Cee, who is married, was arrested twice before on charges of solicitation, and that the pretty much awful Wendy Williams has been stirring up gay rumors about the DJ since 2007…
