50 Cent has spoken out to defend Mister Cee after the hip-hop DJ and record producer was charged with public lewdness following an arrest in New York last week (ends01Apr11).
Mister Cee, real name Calvin Lebrun, was caught performing a sex act with a 20-year-old male in a car in Manhattan.
The scandal has turned many rap fans against the producer, but 50 Cent insists he's still a fan.
Opening up to Hot 97 radio personality Miss Info, 50 Cent says, "I'd make him my DJ any day... It's only entertaining because he (Mister Cee) means that much to hip-hop culture.
"I recognise Mister Cee as the guy who offered us Biggie, so he means that much to the culture. And a lot of the kids that hear the radio don't see him the same way."
50 admits he has played each of his albums for the DJ before they were released - because he values his critique.
