Mister Cee, Legendary Hip-Hop DJ

From the early days of Notorious B.I.G. to the rise of 50 Cent, legendary hip-hop DJ Mister Cee was a pivotal figure in the New York City rap scene and the careers of some of its greatest performers.

The entertainer, born Calvin Lebrun, has died at 57, confirmed Audacy, the parent company of 94.7 The Block — the radio station that Mr. Cee had worked at and had a weekday show playing throwback hits.

“Tonight I share the sad news of the sudden passing of our 94.7 The Block colleague & friend, Mister Cee,” Market President Chris Oliviero said in a statement on Wednesday. “A true iconic personality that left a lasting mark on the music and lifestyle culture of New York City and beyond.”

Skip Dillard, 94.7 The Block’s brand manager, also commented on Mr. Cee’s passing in statement, adding “The Block family are heartbroken but thankful for a chance to work with one of the most influential figures in NYC contemporary music history!”

Dillard also posted a heartfelt message on X, sharing the news.

“Your legacy will live on,” Dillard captioned a photo of the DJ. “God Bless your family. You’ve earned your rest. Well done….@djmistercee.”
