R.I.P. Roc Raida

Not many DJ’s get elevated to Grand Master. Roc Raida did, and there was no doubt about it in any one’s mind. Roc Raida was a leader in the turntablist movement, and an integral part of World DJ battles, DJ crews, and perfecting the art of the scratch. From his early days as one of the leaders of the X-Men (X-ecutioners), to his work with Ghostface, Big L, the Jungle Brothers, Big L, Bob James, and many others, this guy was Hip Hop. Currently he was the DJ for Busta Rhymes, and even did scratches for Linkin Park and Pink. He was nothing but professional, an ambassador for DJ’s everywhere. It saddens me that this guy left us too soon. Rest In Peace Raida, you will be sorely missed.
