New York City icon, record executive, and graffiti legend. DJ Kay Slay passed away at age 55. Hip-Hop promoter Van Silk confirmed to HipHopDX that Kay Slay died on Easter Sunday. Kay Slay was hospitalized in early 2022 due to COVID-19.
“Hip Hop lost a real gem,” Silk said to 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.”
In January, Kay Slay was removed from a ventilator that was helping him breathe. At the time, Slay’s brother Kwame Grayson provided an update: “Kay Slay is a private dude and he didn’t tell anybody in the hospital who hew s, and we was kinda getting average treatment. When they found out who he was, that’s when everybody stepped up the treatment. He was slowly fading way, but God didn’t let that happen.”
Born Keith Grayson, Kay Slay was admitted to the hospital in December for COVID. During his career, Kay Slay released classic bodies of work in The Soul Controller and Accolades.
