R.I.P. K-Swift

Baltmore DJ K-Swift (a.k.a. Khia Edgerton) died this morning due to a swimming pool accident in her hometown of Baltimore, MD, it has been reported. The 28-year-old artist, who has often been considered the Queen of the Baltimore club scene, rose to prominence as Female Mix Show Coordinator on Baltimore's 92Q Jams radio station. She was also a member of the Violator-All Star DJ Coalition and a member of the female group Murda Mamis. Growing up in Baltimore, I'm very familiar with K-Swift, having tuned in to her live club sets on the radio every week, jammin in my car like noone was watching. With the popularity of Baltimore Club spreading like wildfire recently, K-Swift has gone from a hometown name to a globally recognized artist. She will forever be the club queen of Baltimore.
