Sadly, the legendary Hip Hop veteran died on Easter Sunday (April 17), at 55 years old. 

“Hip Hop lost a real gem,” Van Silk quoted. “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.”

Kay Slay served as a DJ on Sirius XM at the time of his passing.

Our prayers go out to DJ Kay Slay’s family and friends.

The Grayson family released a statement, saying:

Our hearts are broken by the passing of Keith Grayson, professionally known as DJ Kay Slay.
