After 35 Years In Hip-Hop, DJ Kay Slay Brings Papoose, Vado & Ransom To Illustrate His Present-Day Definition (Video)
If ever you’ve watched the film Style Wars, you know that DJ Kay Slay’s roots in Hip-Hop run deep. Back when he was an Uptown train-bomber (with paint, that is) named “Dez” to his days winning back at Justo’s Mixtape Awards, The Drama King brought as much love for the core elements of the culture as he has a penchant for barking on other DJs.
In 2014, Kay Slay is out to show that’s not alone with it either. Two days after putting together a cypher featuring Pap, Termanology, Baby Pun, and William Young, The Drama King unloads his “Real Hip-Hop” visual. A different definition, feel and vibe than Heads got 19 years ago with KRS-One and Das EFX, this flashy video from three street-respected, culturally-aware MCs from the Tri-State may open you up further to the range of Vado, Papoose, or Ransom.
