Detroit, MI DJ, producer, rapper, and mixtape impresario DJ Clay got his start as a DJ at local house parties and by appearing on other Detroit hip-hop albums.
Most of his work at parties was done under the aegis of Psychopathic Records, the home of and label founded by the city's notorious rap outfit the Insane Clown Posse. 2006 would turn out to be the breakthrough year for Clay, when the DJ was invited by Shaggy 2 Dope to perform as DJ on the F.T.F.O. tour. The collaboration on-stage was a hit, and Clay was asked to DJ the Insane Clown Posse (and Dark Lotus, the label's "supergroup") on all their upcoming tours. In addition to his work on-stage, Clay's recordings began to get noticed. Shifting his attention from Psychopathic to its in-house mixtape label, Hatchet House, DJ Clay released the first of his Let 'Em Bleed mixtapes in 2008. (His first mixtape, The W-E-R-O-B-U Mixtape, Vol. 1, was released in 2007 on A.R. Entertainment.) Vol.2 of the series was released later that same year. As a producer and contributor, DJ Clay appeared on five Psychopathic full-lengths, working with such artists as ICP, Twiztid, and Dark Lotus. ~ Chris True, Rovi
