From his Style Wars-era time as a graffiti writer to becoming a top mixtape DJ, Kay Slay has been in the center of the hip-hop scene for decades. He's continuing his time at the top with a new album, Hip Hop Frontline, coming out on Jan. 25. The project, a follow-up to 2017's The Big Brother, features artists including Raekwon, Bun B, Dave East, Moneybagg Yo, Styles P, Jim Jones, Mozzy, Joell Ortiz, and more.
Listeners already got a taste of Hip Hop Frontline with the Kevin Gates-featuring "I Do This on the Regular." Complex is proud to premiere one of the album's highlights, "They Want My Blood," featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes.
DJ Kay Slay says his goal in putting the rap legends on a track together was to create something for the ages.
"Having Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes on this record was like the clash of the titans for me," he told Complex. "Two elite lyricists on the mic displaying their talents, neither worried about making a hit record; but instead make a dope record that can be talked about for years. Legendary!"
