    The clip on the web is only a few seconds of the song. I would be willing to PAY for the full version of this song!

  19. linda says:

    That song was awsome. I currently live in GA and my parents back in MI called and told me I had to go online so I could listen to it. That was the best song .Kwame is where he need to be in jail. He though his shit didn’t stink but guess what it does.

  20. Tara says:

    LMAO I just heard it on the radio, it is hilarious!

  21. NancyB says:

    Dedicate this song to the whole Kilpatrick family & friends!!! The original song is great, but this takes the cake !!! Maybe Mich can get some dignity back.

    1. 99.5 WYCD says:

      You can hear the snippet here: The full length version can be heard by listening live online or tuning your FM Dial to 99.5 WYCD! We are playing it every hour! Or you can call in your requests to 313-298-1999! Thanks for visiting WYCD.COM!

      1. Patti says:

        I’ve been listening online while I’m at work and it hasn’t been played every hour. I believe it was only played once from 10am – 1pm. It would be great if it was played every hour or better yet, if you made it available to at least those in the VIP club.

      2. Ashley says:

        I pray Lindsay Lohan is next.

      3. Andrea says:

        So great! Thanks for sharing

  26. kd says:

    I would gladly pay for the whole “Detroit Prays for Kwame” version….perhaps a part of the proceeds could go towards the legal fees to keep Mr. Kilpartrick IN JAIL 🙂
    LOVE IT ….. LOVE IT …… LOVE IT ….

  27. Jeff says:

    I realize Grunwald was involved in the creation of this song, but the way it plays at the end, it sounds like WYCD want’s Grunwald to be in the slammer with Kilpatrick? That’s worse than when Grunwald had to get back from central Africa with $99.50!

  28. nicole says:

    that song is the great i love it
    he got what was comeing to him

  29. Cherie' says:

    I LOVE THE SONG!!! Had 99.5 on all office radios today and just kept listening for it. Kwayme got what he had coming to him and it took a long time coming. anyone else on probation or parole would have long since been violated and sent to prison. It does not matter who he WAS, all he is now is a convicted felon. And he will be one of the know it all types in prison who will most likely end up having to reach down to pick up the soap eventually. Guys in prison don’t like guys like Kwayme. If you are interested in tracking him, just to see what prison he might be at or you can even write him a letter, hate mail is always nice to get in jail lol scroll down, click I agree, the put Kilpatrick in on the search part, his whole MDOC record shows up, how much time he got, where he is currently being housed as of today he is still at Charles Engeler Reception And Guidance Center but he wont stay there, that’s quarantine and he will be moved elsewhere. Maybe in the general population, I hope he ends up at Macomb Regional Facility so I can have him in one of my substance abuse classes. I think he needs some more education. The song so fits, hope we can buy it? Maybe on iTunes?

  30. Cherie' says:

    sorry had to comment again, I just looked at Kwayme’s MDOC page and guess what? He entered prison on his 39th birthday. Happy Sucky Birthday sucker. You owe the City of Detroit more than money you owe us all an apology and proof that you will change your ways. So far you think you are the million dollar life person, now you are the scumbag of Detroit. You need to learn to humble yourself and realise that you fu***ed up and be done with it. Stop trying to get your way out of a situation that you yourself put yourself in. Own up to the things you did, like the Manoogian party that shhhhh never was, Get honest first with yourself and then with everyone else. I pray your wife decides she is better off without you,. God knows she can do much better, you are not the king of Detroit, but rather, the slum of Michigan and the entire county.
    ok I will shut up now

  31. pb says:

    I luved it!!! I purchased the original song on i tunes but will glady pay for the detroit verison.!!! Maybe someone will have the courage to come forward about the manogian party/ homicide he was behind!!! Since he’s behind bars..

  32. Krista Wolter says:

    Not sure who made this video… It was definitely much more powerful to listen to this song while watching Kwame in handcuffs tonight but for all those wanting the full Detroit version this link was posted on the Official Jaron and the Long Road to Love Facebook Page 20 minutes ago…

  33. Krista says:

    Just posted on Jaron and the Long Road to Love Facebook Page

    1. 99.5 WYCD says:

      You most likely have to wait until Jaron decides to release it.

  36. Betsy says:

    I can’t wait to hear the whole thing! My son is an attorney and just called to tell me he just heard it on the radio. I tried to get the whole thing, but can only get the snippet. Thank was enough to make me laugh! I just hope Kwame hears it soon!!

  37. Tracy says:


  38. Dawn says:

    I love this song and the original too. Thank God for song writers, you write and sing what a lot of us are thinking and would like to do – but don’t.

    Kwame I hope your loving your new arrangements

  39. Lil Ms Me says:

    Hopefully Jaron will release this he will make the money from all the Kwame haters. So call him up and tell him we all love the song.

  40. Lisa says:

    This has to be the funniest song I ever heard. I thought Jaron and the Long Road to Love had the funniest song (Pray For You) but they out did themselves by re-creating this one. This would be a hit in any town, but, we as Detroiter’s, will always give this one a thumbs up and lots of laughs. It has to be released in it’s entirety on the web. TY WYCD for your broadcast of this song on the air! It made my day!!

  41. Susan says:

    I SOOOO want to play this for some people at work. Please post the whole song !!!!!!

  42. Jackie says:

    Hey how can I download the song from the website????

    1. 99.5 WYCD says:

      Not available for download. Jaron has the rights to that, so it will be his decision (or his record label)

  43. Rochelle Gotham says:

    I love both songs. but this one was great. it cracked up the whole family and is now the favorite song for ages to come

  44. Ray doughty says:

    This song is great I laughed so hard when I heard it play today. Go WYCD!

  45. jody says:

    Can you notify me when a download is avalible?

    1. 99.5 WYCD says:

      It is available now!

  46. Katherine says:

    I can’t wait for this rendition to be released! Loved the original, Love this one more!

    Please keep us informed, would love to send this to our loved ones in michigan! Even my loved ones in Texas!
