As most people in the DC area have probably seen already, 18-year-old DC rapper Douglas “Swipey” Brooks was killed this weekend in Prince George’s County. Swipey was someone we had our eye on over here, and honestly, I wish we had posted him more, but the energetic artist was so active with his music that it was sometimes hard to follow. He certainly was on to something with his music. Unfortunately, we will never know. Anyways, I’ve included some Swipey favorites below. If you’re a fan these songs are nothing new, but certainly an example of his promise.
