Stunning up-and-coming hip hop artist, London Dior, has died over the weekend in a fatal car accident. She was just in her early 20s.
Fast rising female US rapper, London Dior, who was heading home from the recording studio early Monday morning, has died in a car crash when the car she was traveling in, collided with a second vehicle in the intersection of Suitland Parkway and Forestville Road.
Family members say the 21-year-old Dasia Reds, who went by the stage name London Dior, was traveling with her boyfriend and another male friend. "I'm still messed up over it, it hasn't hit me yet," said Miguel Thomas.
Miguel runs Versus Visualz. He not only produced London Dior's music videos, he discovered the rapper when she was just 14-years-old and a student at Duke Ellington University. He is more than her manager.
"I'm her brother. I'm putting a tribute together for her and my brother is helping me out because there I just have so much of her; from her very first performance (at 16 years old), to her biggest show (opening for Rick Ross a few weeks ago in Columbus, Ohio), to us just chillin' and rapping," he said.
"She had a few different trends at first until she started to really come into her own," Thomas remembered.
"She was like a rose that blossomed but it didn't just blossom one color, it had a lot of different colors in it because whoever she was with she would make them shine."
He said the relationship she had with her mother was like none other.
"It was more than just mother-daughter, they were best friends and when they were together it was magical. Where she came from, it was no walk in the park, so she always wanted to help her mother, sister, and her father; like when she made it she wanted to bring everybody with her.
"She accomplished a lot in her career and was just at the cusp of getting out of here, when it was taken away," he said.
