New York City hip-hop influencer and graffiti artist DJ Kay Slay died on Easter Sunday at 55 after a harrowing four-month battle with COVID-19.
“Our hearts are broken by the passing of Keith Grayson, professionally known as DJ Kay Slay,” the Grayson family said.
Grayson was apparently hospitalized with COVID complications back in January.
Born Aug. 14, 1966, in New York City, Grayson started his career as a graffiti artist, and performed hip-hop in his spare time.
Despite his talent for the art form, the rapper didn’t first intend to become a DJ.
In his final Instagram post in January, Grayson promoted the single “In My Soul,” which he collaborated on with artists Tre Williams, Papoose, and AZ.
