Remembering the late K-Swift

k-swiftAs if news of K-Swift's death wasn't sad enough.

She always wanted a national distribution deal that would get her albums in record stores around the country.

She signed with Unruly Records several years ago, which was a step closer to that goal.

Less than a day after her death, the national deal went through, according to Unruly Records co-founder Shawn Caesar.

"Last night could have been that announcement," Caesar said yesterday. "Instead, all this stuff went down."

Koch Records will still posthumously release her recordings, Caesar said.  

I'll post funeral details today.

Back in the 70,s & 80,s there was a very popular DJ in B-MORE who had the following of thousands his name is Wayne Davis and last Monday morning we lost a leader of thousands in the club scene who will surely be missed THE CLUB QUEEN K-SWIFT.


that's a real kick in the teeth. i was never a fan by any means, but it's pretty crappy that the news would come postmortem, especially after working so hard for it. i'm wondering if the proceeds from the album will go to any kind of charitable source, or fund set up in her name?

Beautiful girl wonderful talent how come people didn't help her? CPR might have saved her life. The news said that life guards was at the pool party. What happened? We need to make sure we are right with GOD before leaving this earth. you never know. GOD know best it very said though. RIP K-Swift

I didn't really no ha like dat but for sum reason im still sad. The gud die young. We love u gurrl.spread your wings and fly away

What's up I just want to say to swift and her family that we love you and remember to hold on just cause she is not down her doesn't me an that she can't see us we will meet again and to her sister and mother and also 92Q just hold on and my prayers goes out to all of yall I remember just being in the club rocky off of k swift jams love you boo

I didn't know K-swift personally but I loved her music and her ambition. I read a lot of comments from fans and we all can say what would've, could've etc..but that won't bring her back. I pray for her family and her 92Q family and all of her close friends because this is such a tradgedy.

God has a purpose for all of us and it was just her time to go. She's at piece now and at a much better place than any of us. She died what she loved doing and that was partying and making sure everyone was having a good time it's just one of those freak accidents. RIP Kswift you will never ever be forgotten.

Swift was a good friend and I want to thank everyone in Baltimore for showing her the love an respect she deserves her mom dad and sis. are really wonderful people that trully thank this City for the love Swift is getting.

God Bless you all.... and Swift love you honey. I know you are smiling down on us.
