DJ KAYSLAY aka THE DRAMA KING embodies real hip hop. A graffiti legend in the ‘70s, and later THE King of all mixtapes with his Streetsweepers series, respect on the streets for Kayslay is second to none. Slay also works like no other to bring together some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop and pairing them with some of today’s hottest producers.As the official “Drama King,” he was the first DJ to break landmark battles over the past decade including serving as referee for the now legendary Jay-Z vs. Nas battle and the brutal Ja Rule vs. 50 Cent war on the airwaves. Rappers consider Kayslay the go-to DJ to entrust their hottest battle raps with. The Street Sweepers, Vol. 1 and The Street Sweepers Vol. 2: The Pain From The Game (released in 2003 and 2004 respectively) have together sold over 350,000 copies. Kayslay is also the #1 DJ on New York’s premier hip hop radio station, Hot 97.
Slay’s new album MORE THAN JUST A DJ will be a fall release must have for hip-hop fanatics.
