DJ KAY Dies At The Age Of 55 After A COVID Battle

According to his family and peers, DJ Kay died after a four-month fight with COVID.

The iconic hip-hop ambassador from New York passed away on Sunday, according to Wack 100 and others, as tributes began to flow in from all around the industry. “Our hearts are shattered by the passing of Keith Grayson, professionally known as DJ Kay Slay,” his family wrote.

“A prominent presence in Hip Hop culture with millions of admirers around the world, DJ Kay Slay will be remembered for his passion and excellence with a legacy that will span generations,” they continue.

Kay Slay, AKA Dez, began his career as a graffiti artist in the 1970s and 1980s, then moved on to music, making a big mark in the early 2000s through the local radio and music scene with his enormous personality and distinctive beat selection, not to mention his wicked flow.

He’s best known for his mixtapes, which he’s released since 2003 and include Nas, Swizz Beatz, N.O.R.E., Raekwon, Lloyd Banks, and Foxy Brown, as well as other solo and compilation artists. His mixtapes often feature big names in the game, including Nas, Swizz Beatz, N.O.R.E., Raekwon, Lloyd Banks, and Foxy Brown.

One of his major claims to fame is his “Streetsweeper” series, as well as his recurring radio spot on Hot 97, which was dubbed the Drama Hour… another nickname he went by. DJ Kay Slay was also noted for his disses in his tracks, and the New York Times reportedly dubbed him “Hip-One-Man Hop’s Ministry of Insults.”

Dez was hospitalized for a spell after contracting coronavirus in December. While he showed signs of improvement after that, it became evident that he was still trying to get back to 100%.
