Rap Radar Interviews DJ Kay Slay Pt. 1

shot: the dark nyte | canon eos 60d

DJ Kay Slay’s been in the game for years. During hip-hop’s infancy in the late 70s, the Harlem native was known as the graffiti artist, Dezzy Dez. As one of the city’s top bombers, he was featured in the documentary Style WarsEventually, he parlayed his skills to DJing. After a stint in jail, Slay turned his hobby into a job with his Streetsweeper mixtape series and gig on Hot 97.

In the first of our three part interview, Slay speaks on his origins, mixtapes, and beefing with other DJs. The Drama King is in the building.

    In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin’ around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it and just get it out the way. Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away. You can keep flyin’, just fly somewhere else, though.
