Hip Hop suffered a major blow today with the release of GQ Magazine’s  expose on Mr. Cee and his tranny lovin ways.

Over shrimp fried rice, he finally admitted (not to US … the Hip Hop Nation…who he SHOULD be explaining himself to) to the white media that he loves tranny booty juice.

Why am I mad about this?  I’m digging deep to explain why.

I love hip-hop.  I am tired of seeing it continuously bastardized.  The feminine clothes, the videos, the lyrics, the selling out, the materialism and more recently the cartoon that appeared on FX about the first gay white rapper.

It’s like we, the leaders and originators of hip hop, are carted out on the world stage as the perpetual joke.  Constantly.  When it’s something bad or crazy in hip hop, they MAKE sure they put a Black face on it, if it’s good or has an award attached, it goes to everyone else other than the originators.

How could Mr. Cee not understand his legacy … and by consequence, the legacy of Hip Hop?  He had a greater responsibility than the average fan.  The GQ article is a disgrace to his name, his work and anyone attached to it…. example…

the reporter asks if Biggie would understand him being on the down low… he said:

Oh, I know that. I know Big stands next to me. I have no question in my mind.”

They also spoke about other MC’s Mr. Cee worked with; Jay Z, Big Daddy Kane etc.  There was even a kid friendly map inserted into the article to show just how closely the Hip Hop community is connected.  It would also imply these people stand with him and approve of his illegal and dangerous sexual behavior (guilt by association).

This looks like a damn child predator map. A very powerful graphic used in conjunction with a story about a down low DJ.

The one thing the article did not cover is WHY, they, a white publication, would be interested in a DJ who would never even cross their radar at any other time?  I believe there is a solid movement to discredit Black Hip Hop on the world stage.  Those that can’t be bought will be disgraced.

WHY GQ?  What relevance does dragging him out on the world stage hold for you? The community already heard his BS and we got over it.

Why are you so stupid Mr. Cee?  You have guaranteed without a shadow of a doubt that from now on you will be known for your gay, undercover practices instead of one of our pioneers.

Please don’t fall back on that BS about you wanted to let us know.. you got on Hot 97 and spoke to the entire Hip Hop nation like we were fools.  But we gave you a pass and said “You know what.. we preserve the legacy.  Let’s treat him like the guy in the choir at church and keep it moving.”

Does your legacy … our legacy, mean nothing to you?  Do you understand you are a part of something bigger than yourself?  Do you understand this paves the way for the complete whitewashing of Hip Hop?  Answering to the community is one thing, but spreading your ass for GQ and telling them everything is different.  You are not a tortured artist, you being gay doesn’t take away from your work, nor is it anything to be ashamed of..if you prefer men, that is your preference and your right.

This could have been a clarion call for gay rights.  Maybe you could have triumphed by calling for tolerance of gay issues. You could have shown some class by talking about gay rights in Africa..maybe bring light to the injustices and social backlash felt by gay men who feel they have to creep under bridges to satisfy themselves because they can’t do it publicly.

If anything, you should be clear about who you are and your accomplishments.  This portrayal has you looking like a disgraced pervert.

I hope you enjoy whatever rewards were promised to you for doing this… as for the Hip Hop nation.. We are embarrassed by you. Again.

  1. “WHY GQ? “”The one thing the article did not cover is WHY, they, a white publication, would be interested in a DJ who would never even cross their radar at any other time?” GQ ironically as white washed as it is … has many young black gay men on staff who are in very high positions. So … when they FINALLY voice their desire to do a story on black culture it going to be something like this. The last story was on Jason Collins. The last before that I believe was a snippet about Chris Bosh. I’ve been a subscriber to GQ since 1985 and there have been very very few articles on black folks. but when it is. this. That’s why. You have black persons in a position to direct stories but because of their lifestyle … this would be the story. Plus they pay well for their articles even though they are notorious for making the articles looks they way they want and why …smarter..celebs… know to have final say on whats printed. Plus … the black community is done with him. All we are going to do is drag this shit through the streets to poke fun or point at. He needs to win over the white establishment to start play their parties.
