Calvin LeBrun, better known as Mister Cee or DJ Mister Cee (born August 17, 1966), is an American DJ, broadcaster, record producer, record executive and radio personality on New York's RADIO 103.9. LeBrun is best known as the DJ for rapper Big Daddy Kane during the late 1980s and early 1990s. He also served as an associate executive producer for the Notorious B.I.G.'s debut album, Ready to Die (1994). He has also developed and endorsed a variant of the Tropical Fantasy soft drink, which he named "Island Punch Finisher".
LeBrun was born in the Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York. He started working summer jobs at age 14, and graduated from high school at 18, where he met Big Daddy Kane. After graduation, he worked for several messenger companies. He worked for Airborne Express up until he and Big Daddy Kane released the album Long Live the Kane (1988). In 2008, Mister Cee was featured as himself on the hip-hop radio station "102.7 The Beat" in Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV.
Mister Cee pleaded guilty to loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution with 20-year-old Lawrence Campbell. Campbell was known on the street as Brook-Lyne. In a New York Daily News article, Mister Cee was quoted as saying "And it's nothing — it's no offense to transgender women, but I only get with transgender women for one thing and one thing only, and that's for oral sex," he said. "Like I said: I never had sex with a man. I never had sex with a transgender woman." In 2013, Mister Cee was arrested for allegedly agreeing to have sex with an undercover police officer who was posing as a prostitute.
On May 9, 2019 Wendy Williams mentioned on her TV show that she ran into her "old school" friend Mister Cee the previous night, and said that he is now happy and "comfortable in his own skin" but would invite him onto her show to do his official coming out.
