RIP Anthony Williams aka Grand Master Roc Raida

2:52 PM

Grand Master Roc Raida was one of the original members of the one of the greatest turntablist crews, New York based X-Men (later became known a The X-Ecutioners). He was the DMC World DJ Champion in 1995. He released 7 solo albums and several LPs with The X-Ecutioners and produced tracks for artists including Fat Joe, Ghostface Killah, Linkin Park, and Pink. The master of body tricks & beat juggling, he was known for being the ultimate showman on the 1200's. He passed away on September 19 and is survived by his wife and 3 daughters. This talented DJ and good spirited man will be sorely missed by the turntablists and music community.
