The hip-hop world went into mourning after it was announced that DJ Mister Cee died on April 10. Now, his family has revealed the hip-hop legend’s cause of death.

According to a report by the Medical Examiner of New York City, DJ Mister Cee died from a diabetes-related coronary artery and kidney disease.

The family also released a statement.

“On behalf of the Lebrun, Wilson, and Calixte families, we want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support for our brother, uncle, and nephew Calvin “DJ Mister Cee” Lebrun in the wake of his untimely passing. It’s a huge loss for our entire family, the borough of Brooklyn and the entire Hip Hop Community…Details about the public funeral service will be announced shortly. We ask that you please respect the family’s privacy during this extremely difficult time. Thank you,” the family said in a written statement to the media outlet.

“The Finisher” was first introduced to the hip-hop world when he debuted as the DJ for Brooklyn emcee Big Daddy Kane after meeting the lyricist in high school in the 1980s. While Kane was making his way crafting his lyrics into masterpieces, Mister Cee was perfecting his DJ skills before Kane released his debut album, Long Live the Kane, in 1988.

Before making his mark on the radio airwaves, Mister Cee was behind another Brooklyn icon who was then an up-and-coming emcee. Christopher Wallace, better known as The Notorious B.I.G., had Mister Cee in his corner from the inception of his burgeoning career and was partly, if not wholly, responsible for Biggie’s signing to Bad Boy Records.

While producing records, performing worldwide, and DJing events and parties, he was a mainstay as a popular radio DJ. He worked for Hot 97, RADIO 103.9, Rock the Bells Radio, and 94.7 The Block until his untimely death.

DJ Mister Cee was 57 years old.
