Kay Slay’s more than just a DJ. Five years ago, he got into publishing and created the men’s magazine, Straight Stuntin. He’s also set to release his graffiti book, The Master Of Dezasters.
But despite his brand extension, music is still the cornerstone. And later this year, he plans drop his fourth and final album, Rhyme Or Die. In our last segment, Slay discusses being the Black Hugh Hefner and the state of hip-hop.

Remember when DJs broke artists? Well, Kay Slay does. And during his reign as mixtape king, he “contributed strongly to the success” of artists like T.I., 50 Cent, and Papoose, who secured a million dollar record deal. His word held so much weight, that even Eminem contributed a pair of tracks for free, including this freestyle. In part two of our interview, Slay speaks on breaking new talent, Em, and his conflict with Jay-Z.

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.

After a stint in jail, Slay turned his hobby into a job with his Streetsweeper mixtape series and gig on Hot 97.
