Legendary Hip Hop legend, Dj Kay Slay, dies of Covid-19

According to veteran Hip Hop promoter Van Silk, the 55-year-old died on Easter Sunday (April 17), four months after being hospitalized with COVID-19.

“Hip Hop lost a real gem,” Silk tells DX. “My dear brother is gone. I’ve known him since he was 16 years old. He was my little brother. I introduced him to many and we did a lot of things together. We last talked December because we were finishing up the 200 rolling deep project. He was gonna do his video part with MC Sha-Rock.

“From the mixtapes to helping him launch Straight Stuntin‘ magazine and the whole What The Science project, the world not only lost a real dedicated person to the culture of Hip Hop but a source of bridging the gap in Hip Hop. I’m gonna miss my little brother.”

Eventually, Kay Slay would emerge as one of the most profound DJs ever, which a decidedly uncompromising view on the culture. As the Drama King, his Street Sweeper series from the early 2000s would prove epic and helped keep the streets on fire. He released six studio albums, innumerable mixtapes and broke artist after artist, almost exclusively based on talent.

Most recently, he was releasing a series of monster posse cuts that consistently shook up the Hip Hop landscape. The last one was “Rollin 110 Deep,” which featured as many rappers in one incredibly long song

He served as a DJ on Sirius XM at the time of his passing, but had a lengthy run on Hot 97 with the “Drama Hour.”
