The tragic death of the leading MC battle referee was confirmed to The Post in a statement from his family.

“Our hearts are shattered by the passing of Keith Grayson, better known as DJ Kay Slay,” the grieving Grayson family wrote in a touching tribute.
“A dominant figure in hip-hop culture with millions of fans around the world, DJ Kay Slay will be remembered for his passion and legacy that transcends generations.”

Growing up in Harlem, Grayson immersed himself in the early New York City hip-hop scene.
He began his life as a graffiti artist in his teens and appeared in the 1983 hip-hop documentary Style Wars.

He began selling illicit mixed tapes on street corners in the early 1990s and released his first studio album – The Streetsweeper, Vol. 1 – in May 2003.

Grayson has released several more albums and has worked with the likes of Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes.

“Hot 97 is shocked and saddened by the loss of beloved DJ Kay Sly,” the station said in a statement.

The Sun reports that Grayson succumbed to complications from COVID-19 after being hospitalized with illness in December and put on a ventilator.
