Legendary Turntablist DJ Roc Raida dies

leave a comment »

Damn. 2009 is proving a tough year. DJ Roc Raider has died. Also known as DJ Roc Raida, he was the DJ for X-Men also known as The Xecutioners. Last month, I saw reports that he had been hospitalized and thought nothing of it. As a hip hop fan, I was very concerned about his health though. Roc Raida won numerous DMC championships and I know him via a Bay Area turntablist legend friend of mine DJ Qbert and Ritchie aka Yoga Frog.

Roc Raida worked on some classic hip hop albums including Big Pun’s Capital Punishment and Immortal Techniques Revolutionary. Roc Raida’s real name is Anthony Williams for those who don’t know who I’m referring to. For those who don’t know what the DMC Championships are:

Rest in Peace, brova. Hip hop and the Underground Millionaire mourn your loss. Prayers to the Williams family during this tough time. God bless you all.
