Mister Cee spoke to GQ staff writer Zach Baron back in October for a piece that just made it onto the magazine’s website. It’s not an especially illuminating interview, there isn’t a whole lot here we didn’t already know, but it’s important because it’s the first time Cee is talking about his proclivity for transexual prostitutes with a journalist since his famous sit-down with Ebro back in September.
Here he comments on how he feels Biggie would react to the controversy were he still alive:
In our booth at the restaurant, 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.” Cee is real.
