Mister Cee, best known for his work on New York City’s RADIO 103.9 and Hot 97, has passed away at the age of 57.

Born Calvin LeBrun in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn in 1966, Mister Cee became famous as a member of pioneering Hip Hop crew Juice Crew, along with fellows titans such as Kool G Rap, Biz Markie, Masta Ace and many more.

Furthermore, he was also the DJ on Big Daddy Kane‘s explosive 1988 debut album Long Live the Kane as well as an executive producer for the Notorious B.I.G‘s 1994 debut album, Ready to Die. In fact, Cee was the first to co-sign the Biggie before he appeared in The Source‘s Unsigned Hype section, thus kicking off his career.

During his time on the radio — specifically with Hot 97 — the veteran earned the nickname “The Finisher.”

Just one day before his passing, Mister Cee took to Instagram himself to announce a new show on Rock The Bells Radio and wrote: “2NITE!!!
