As Dezzy Dez, his tag name at that time, Kayslay made quite a name for himself throughout New York during the late ’70s and early ’80s. Drugs started to take a toll on himself, though, as his flavor for dust and coke gradually gyrated into habit. He eventually met his fate throughout the early ’90s, when he was indicted for felony possession of narcotics. Upon his come back to the streets, Kayslay started living a new, drug-free life which was a real hustle. For a long time himself worked at random jobs, striving to make enough money to finance his own studio in Harlem so that he could satisfy his dreams of being a big-time DJ. He slowly realized his dreams, and from the early 2000s, he was really one of New York’s big-time DJs, churning out mixtapes that featured a lot of the city’s top rappers.
Himself’s break came throughout the arrival of high-stakes beefing sparked by the unprecedented furior surrounding Jay-Z’s ongoing bout with Nas.

His Streetsweeper mixtapes, which were trademarked by his signature loud-mouth voiceovers, were therefore hot commodities in this age, and Columbia Records took the initiative to sign him and finance a major-label version of the Street sweeper show. Meanwhile, Kayslay hosted a favorite radio show on Hot 97, The Drama Hour, where he would consistently debut the latest conflict-rap exclusives. At the conclusion of 2004, Kayslay became the head of A&R for the Shaquille O’Neal funded label DEJA34. Kayslay’s own Game of Death became the label’s first release in spring of 2005.
