Legendary DJ Kay Slay is reportedly in a New York hospital on life support after battling COVID for 2 weeks.

Covid-19 is a novel coronavirus that causes flu-like symptoms. People most affected by COVID include the elderly, the immunocompromised, morbidly obese, smokers, and people with pre-existing conditions.

Music manager Wack 100 first announced the news on Tuesday. He wrote on Instagram:

"Pray for my brotha @djkayslay it's not looking good. He might be mad at me for this those that know Slay but he needs all the support he can get... Been 14 days fighting Ovid and he's just be put on a ventilator. Keep him in your prayers please [sic]."

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.

LL wrote: "Send strength @djkayslay. Love u bro."

Singer Jeremih (left) is reportedly "responsive" after testing positive for Covid-19 and on life support in an ICU in Chicago.

The news that the 33-year-old R&B singer was unresponsive and on a ventilator was met with skepticism, especially considering the source: rapper-turned internet troll 50 Cent (right).

50 Cent, 45, took to social media to ask for prayers for Jeremih over the weekend.

"Pray for my boy Jeremih he's not doing good this covid s**t is real," he wrote, while Chance the Rapper and Big Sean also offered up well wishes and prayers.

50 Cent returned to his Instagram on Monday to report that Jeremih was "responsive" and "doing a little better."

"Thank you for praying for my Boy @jeremih he is responsive today, doing a little better," he wrote in the caption of a recent photo of the singer.

There is an unconfirmed report that Jeremih has a pre-existing condition that weakened his immune system, making him susceptible to any respiratory virus.

Jeremih and 50 Cent collaborated on a single, "Down on Me", which charted at the No. 1 spot on the Rhythmic Billboard chart in 2010.

Jeremih is best known for his hit debut single, "Birthday Sex", which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2009.
 

The owner of the Nevada brothel where former NBA star Lamar Odom was found unresponsive spoke with HLN's Nancy Grace on Wednesday.
