Prayers are coming in for DJ Kay Slay, who Wack 100 says is currently fighting for his life against COVID-19. Wack shared the troubling news on Instagram Wednesday night (Jan. 5).

“Pray for my brotha [DJ Kay Slay]. It’s not looking good,” the longtime music manager wrote in a post. “He might be mad at me for this, those that know Slay, but he needs all the support he can get.”

Wack added that Slay has been suffering from Coronavirus for two weeks and was recently put on a ventilator, which is used to help patients breathe.

“Keep him in your prayers, please,” he added.

After word of Slay’s hospitalization broke, several other hip hop mainstays sent their prayers. Wack’s post was met with supportive comments from Uncle Murda, DJ EFN, Ebro Darden, Twista and more who sent their well wishes to the legendary New York DJ.

“To my brother Kay Slay: I’ve known you since you were 15 years old,” veteran NYC promoter and producer Van Silk told HipHopDX. “We done a lot together — from me helping you with Straight Stuntin magazine as the first editor to how the many DJs we put on during the mixtape era, and now working on the Rolling Deep 200 project. Brother, I love you and you gotta get well. You know how I was on your back about getting vaccinated.”

On Wednesday, DJ Kay Slay’s official Instagram account also asked fans to “keep [up] the positive energy” for a “speedy recovery.”
