R.I.P. DJ Roc Raida
I would have posted this yesterday when the news came about, but I didn’t have a chance to get to it. I had logged on to Twitter for the first (and only time yesterday) and saw that R.I.P. Roc Raida was a trend and I went motionless. I couldn’t believe that another legend in the game of Hip-Hop, not to mention one of the best DJ’s of all-time, passed away. I’m still expressionless about the matter, yet another talented soul that was taken much too early.
Many of you may know Anthony Williams (AKA DJ Roc Raida) as being a part of the DJ clique The X-Ecutioners, and many of you may know of his solo material that he released over the years. One thing is for certain, Roc Raida is one of the most talented individuals to have ever touched the decks. He was the 1995 DMC World DJ Champion, and anyone who has seen the man in action will testify that he’s unreal. If you don’t know what I mean, just watch the video I’ve attached below of Roc performing with Bussa Buss just a short month ago.
