NEW YORK, NY -- KOCH Records and Deja34 (Shaquille O'Neal's new venture) are proud to announce the upcoming release, "The Champions - North Meets South," presented by DJ Kayslay and DJ Greg Street.

Few DJs embody real hip-hop the way DJ Kayslay does. A graffiti legend in the '80s, and later THE King of all mixtapes with his "Streetsweepers" series, respect on the streets for Kayslay is second to none. As the official "Drama King," he was the first DJ to break landmark battles over the past decade including serving as referee for the now legendary Jay-Z vs. Nas battle and the brutal Ja Rule vs. 50 Cent war on the airwaves. Rappers consider Kayslay the go-to DJ to entrust their hottest battle raps with.
