Hot 97’s Mister Cee Breaks Down about Shame of Attraction to Transgender Women to...

Radio Facts: This is a great radio segment. Both Mister Cee and Ebro did a good job of being honest. The angst, the brotherhood, the compassion, the guilt and the fear are incredibly prevalent in this interview.

During this interview, Hip Hop legend and radio mixer Mister Cee is bombarded with the fear that he will lose the respect of the Hip Hop community after coming clean about his interest in transgendered women.

There are many awards given each year in radio but segments like this on Black radio are rare and this should have definitely been considered.

Today this would be a shoulder shrugging situation but 7 years ago, it was taboo. Mister Cee felt bad because of the perception and the judgement placed on him by the black and hip hop community. He keeps saying "I didn't want to let anybody down." Hopefully, after this interview, Mister Cee is at peace and has come to the realization that EVERYBODY has something about themselves they don't want other people to know about and nobody is perfect.

Radio Facts is sad to report that industry vet Tommie Allen died over the weekend. He was 57. Allen was a mix legend who is most famous for his work at WBLS and Hot 97 in NYC. We talked to his manager this morning who told us that he had retired from the industry even though he was still doing a few events and he was working in the education system and mentoring kids. We will keep you posted on arrangements. Tributes have been posted to his FaceBook page and YouTube below.

Radio Facts: Swizz Beatz stopped by the studios of Hot 97 to chop it up with Ebro in the Morning. Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Rosenberg talk to the producer about his No Commission Art show which is a revolutionary concept. They also get Swizz to talk about working with Kanye West, Jay-Z's personal art collection, and much more. The conversation really gets good when Swizz Beatz talks about police brutality and his personal encounters with the law. https://youtu.be/cqpoBbITRNM
