Keith Grayson was born on August 14, 1966 and died on April 17, 2022), professionally known as DJ Kay Slay, was an American disc jockey (DJ) and record executive from New York City.
He is referred to by The New York Times as "Hip Hop's One-Man Ministry of Insults". He released four studio albums, The Streetsweeper, Vol. 1, The Streetsweeper, Vol. 2, The Champions: North Meets South (with Greg Street), and More Than Just a DJ.

Grayson was originally a prominent graffiti artist, having been featured in the 1983 hip hop documentary, Style Wars. One of Grayson's better known tags was "Dez".As a youth involved in New York’s flourishing hip-hop scene, Keith witnessed firsthand the ascent of legendary disc jockeys such as Grandmaster Flash, Grand Wizzard Theodore and Kool DJ Red Alert, in the late 1970s and into the 1980s. “I didn’t so much set out to be a DJ,” he said. “It was just something to do that was fun and that I enjoyed doing.”[With the decline of the graffiti movement in the late 1980s, Dez began dealing with narcotics and consequently ended up in jail by the late 1980s. Grayson was released from jail in 1990, and claims to have abstained from using drugs ever since. He is from East River Projects located in East Harlem, New York.

In January 2022, DJ Kay Slay's brother said he was in hospital after contracting C19 but was "in a recovery state".He later died of complications from the disease on April 17, 2022, at the age of 55.
