R.I.P. Grandmaster Roc Raida (1972-2009)
Hip Hop lost a legend earlier today as legendary Dj Roc Raida passed away. Details of his death have yet to be confirmed but reports say it was due to complications of a spinal injury.
Roc Raida was one of the founding members of the world famous X-Ecutioners (formerly X-Men/Ill Insanity) DJ Crew. Roc Raida won numerous awards in the field of turntablism including 1995 DMC World Championship.
We will be paying tribute to him tonight on the radio show, and if you're in NYC on October 22nd, there will be a benefit concert at BB Kings for his family.
