Back on Wednesday, January 6th, Wack 100 took to instagram to reveal a DJ Kay Slay covid battle, sharing that the legendary deejay and advocate for the culture had been placed on a ventilator after 14 days. Wack also shared that it wasn’t looking good.  Not a good sign.

Just a week before Kay Slay being hospitalized Raysean Autry, the co-founder of the popular Hip-Hop blog Kollege Kidd, passed away from COVID-19. His twin brother, Rich Autry, also a Kollege Kidd co-founder, also fought off the coronavirus in the hospital.
