More Than Just a DJ is the third studio album by DJ Kayslay.[2] It was released on February 9, 2010.[3] It was released 6 days before Valentine's Day.

Album information[edit]

The album was originally set to be released on October 13, 2009[4] then it was pushed back to November 10, 2009.[5] The third time the album was pushed was due to the album's first single "Blockstars" which originally featured Plies, was replaced by Yo Gotti because according to Kayslay, Plies could not be found when it was time to shoot the video.
