The family of DJ Kay Slay is grateful for the love they’ve received as he continues to fight a severe bout of COVID-19. On Thursday (Jan. 6), they released a statement via HOT 97, where he hosts his own radio show.

“Legendary #HOT97 @djkayslay’s family sends their appreciation for the outpouring of prayers, love and support as he works through a current health issue,” the New York radio station tweeted. “They ask everyone to please respect his privacy during this time, and continue to send your positive energy and prayers.”

Kay Slay was reportedly placed on a ventilator after a two-week fight against COVID-19. Wack 100 revealed the news late Wednesday (Jan. 5) while asking for prayers.

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

Members of the hip hop community have since rallied together to send well wishes for the DJ‘s speedy recovery.

“Prayers Up For The Homie @djkayslay..Get Well Soon My Guy,” tweeted DJ Clue.

“Prayers up for my man Kay Slay, the mixtape king aka Dez the graffiti genius. JUST spoke to him a few weeks ago. Smh,” added New York emcee Skyzoo. “An absolute legend in the game who brought NY back and kept us up. Speedy recovery king.”

Page Kennedy advised people to be safe as he asked fans to “plz keep my dog in your prayers.” “Plz plz plz. This is serious,” he wrote. “I love you @djkayslay.
