DJ Kay Slay
Fridays, “The Drama Hour” 12 a.m. – 2 a.m.
DJ Kay Slay’s undeniable hustle and grind has no doubt been the largest contributing factor to his success outside of his keen ability to rock a crowd. He rose through the ranks by refereeing the biggest MC battles on his Streetsweeper mixtapes. Known as the Drama King, Kay Slay grew up in Harlem making a name for himself as a DJ. He signed his first deal with Violator records with the late Chris Lighty, and released his first two albums, Street Sweepers Volumes 1 & 2, through Columbia/Sony Records.
In 2004, Kay Slay became head of A&R for Shaquille O’Neal’s label DEJA34 where he released his third album, The Champions, featuring DJ Greg Street. Kay Slay was also the A&R of Ray J’s Album, “All I Feel,” featuring hit song “Sexy Can I.” In 2005 he signed one the most lyrical artists in hip hop, Papoose. Because of this ear for talent, Slay has also received recognition from other big name hip hop DJs, winning several “Justo’s Mixtape Awards”.
Kay Slay is currently the CEO of Straight Stuntin’ Magazine. The magazine hits newsstands quarterly and features interviews with the top Hip Hop artists and the sexiest models in the game. Recently, Kay Slay was the man behind connecting two NYC rivals on his hit single, “Free Again”, featuring Fat Joe and 50 Cent.
