Legendary DJ and rapper Kid Capri took to Instagram on Thursday, Jan. 6, to reveal he is deathly ill.

The 54-year-old rapper from The Bronx revealed he is having a rough time battling COVID.

Even though he is vaccinated and boosted, Kid Capri told viewers:

"I'm sick as sh*t, man. Y'all gotta be careful out there, man. Y'all gotta be careful 'cause it's bad out there. I've been sick for the last three days. F**king head is pounding. Back hurt. I'm pretty far from good. I just wanted to pop on here and tell y'all take care of yourselves, man. F**k them parties. F**k hanging out. If you ain't gotta be somewhere then don't go. Just relax, 'cause this sh*t is no joke. And a couple of my friends -- a lot of people I know are dying."

He added: "Force MDs, Jessie D died today," referring to Force MDs lead vocalist Jessie Lee Daniels.

He continued:

"Every shirt I put on, I sweat it out. The lady just left here to give me my test. I had the home test, she came over here and tested me. F**king head is pounding. But like I said, man, just stay out the way. Take care of yourself out there because it's serious. Sh*t is serious."

DJ Kay Slay, real name Keith Grayson, is a popular mixtape DJ, graffiti artist, and record executive who released 4 studio albums, including The Streetsweeper, Vol. 1 and The Champions: North Meets South (with Atlanta's own Greg Street).

Grayson first came to prominence after he was featured in the 1983 hip-hop documentary, Style Wars as a prominent graffiti artist.

"I didn't so much set out to be a DJ," he said at the time. "It was just something to do that was fun and that I enjoyed doing."

When the graffiti movement faded in the late 1980s, Grayson began dealing drugs and landed in jail in the late 1980s.

He was released from jail in 1990, and went on to sell hip-hop mixtapes to make ends meet.

Grayson's mixtapes were wildly popular and gained a large following. His studio became the destination for many rappers and artists including 50 Cent, Eminem, Foxy Brown, Kid Capri, and more.

LL Cool J was among the celebrities paying tribute to Grayson on social media.
