50 Cent (April 2011)

When Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee was arrested and charged with receiving oral sex from a male transvestite last spring, 50 Cent was one of the few rappers who stood up for him. In an interview with Miss Info weeks later, 50 stated that Cee's sexual orientation—gay or straight—was irrelevant to his skills as a DJ or the impact he’s made on hip-hop:

“I recognize Mister Cee as the guy who offered us Biggie, so he means that much to the culture… It’s not like there’s gonna be a nightclub that doesn’t call Mister Cee because of [this].”
