Biggie and his best friend Mann

Filmmaker and author dream hampton shed some interesting light on Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G. via Twitter. Late last night she posted the above photo of Biggie and his best friend Mann on her Twitter page.

Hampton also shared this interesting anecdote:
Dream talks Biggie
Dream talks Biggie 2
Dream talks Biggie 3

Damn… so not only is Biggie’s DJ, Mister Cee suspect, but his best friend was out the closet?

Dream’s tweets came shortly after BET.com posted her thoughts on the Mister Cee scandal humorously titled “Mister Cee What You Started.”

Hampton’s take recounted the scandalous revelations of the last week along with her brand of ‘radical thinking.’

I believe that Mister Cee’s sexuality is a personal matter, one he must reckon with himself and his wife. But Charlamagne’s co-host Angela Yee took the position widely held by heterosexual women—that closeted bisexual men are a health hazard, exposing trusting women to AIDS and more. While I’m not dismissive of those concerns, particularly in a marriage, where condom use is expected to be abandoned, I do know that we heterosexual Black women don’t exactly offer safe spaces for bisexual men to express their desires.

I’m also far more concerned that the transgendered 20-year-old who allegedly serviced him be safe, particularly if he is a sex worker. I wished aloud on my own Twitter feed that the discussion about Mister Cee would be one about decriminalizing sex work and focusing on harm reduction rather than speculating if Mister Cee is closeted.

All gay jokes aside, there are a lot of issues that aren’t being confronted. Homophobia in hip-hop is obscuring larger societal problems.

Still, decriminalizing sex work? Isn’t that like saying let the trannys suck d*ck in peace?

    What’s wrong with that? I don’t see a problem with him being friends with a gay guy.

    I mean I get the tweet but the guy getting head from the transexual is denying it. If u gay or like gay like men that is cool but it should not be in the closet. Be who ever u are. Being in the closet isnt good for anyone for social and health issues.

    Why did she find it necessary to tell this information anyway? She speaks entirely too much about some things. Okay cool Biggie’s best friend was openly gay; but is it a must to tell everyone just to prove a point. What is the deal with her and Big? Was she a girlfriend or what?

    • Sugarbaby

      I agree she is saying way too much. I’m trying to figure out why is it black women’s duty to make bi-sexual men comfortable to induldge in their sexual desires. She needs to miss me with all that bullshit.

      Because, Sugarbaby…

      Sigh. It’s ridiculous that someone even needs to explain this simple ish to you.

      The fact is, if straight Black women (and straight Black men) DON’T drop their ridiculous holier-than-thou homophobic rhetoric – y’all will CONTINUALLY have to deal with men who are so scared of coming out the closet, that they’re willing to LIE TO YOU and PRETEND TO BE STRAIGHT, just so they won’t be banished from the rest of the Black community.

      I am in no way suggesting that lying to his wife/girlfriend is in any way ok – but I AM suggesting that homophobic straight folks CREATED A VERY HOSTILE COMMUNITY TOWARDS GAY PEOPLE – and so they should only expect that folks will be scared right into a closet that Y’ALL CREATED.

      How difficult is this to understand? Folks that want to pretend that they don’t understand something so simple, will continue to be shocked and surprised when they find out that someone is gay. Y’all really need to get over yourselves.
