  • The Late, Great DJ K-Swift Receives Three New Musical Tributes

    This Thursday marks the third anniversary of the death of Baltimore club DJ and local radio icon Khia "Club Queen K-Swift" Edgerton, a tragic loss to the city's music scene that hasn't gotten any less heartbreaking or difficult to accept in the time since then. Countless tribute songs popped up in the months immediately following K-Swift's passing, but years after that sad day in 2008 there are still new tracks written for the beloved DJ surfacing, including a few that recently dropped in time to help remember her on the anniversary. Local battle rap champ EJ included the song "Queen Swift" on his new mixtape Retire the Instrumental, and shot a video (below) for the track directed by fellow Baltimore rapper Ray Lugar. EJ dons a suit as if still at K-Swift's funeral, and references the clubs she once ran with lyrics like "When I ride past Choices I swear to God it screams 'Baby come back.'" The video ends with a K-Swift photo montage set to another MC's tribute song, Comp remixing the current radio hit "Tupac Back" by Meek Mill and Rick Ross as "K-Swift Back." Another tribute, this time in K-Swift's own genre of choice, Baltimore club music, surfaced on Tunecore this week, by heretofore unknown Baltimore native Isaac Stalk. "The Incredible," which is being released via Island Def Jam Digital Distribution, features a dramatic synth horn riff over a "Think" breakbeat and a collage of vocal samples, including the title phrase as famously uttered by Chuck D and K-Swfit's name as shouted out by club producer Blaqstarr.

    Album review: The Gifted, by Wale

    Wale's third major label album, The Gifted, is a miracle, in that Wale has a third major label album. It's rare enough for anyone in mainstream hip-hop to reach that milestone these days, especially if they get off to as rough a start as Wale did. In...

    Album Review: Love And War, by Tamar Braxton, and Rebellious Soul, by K. Michelle
