R.I.P. Roc Raida

This weekend, another A-List DJ passed away. Roc Raida was not just any other DJ. He was a member of the X-men, who later changed their name to the Xecutioners for obvious copyright reasons.

He won battle after battle, culminating at the 1995 DMC World Championship. He was known for his beat-juggling and his tricks, like the one in the photo. Roc Raida was once featured on the show Saturday Night Live, being the only DJ to ever share the stage with the SNL House Band. Check out this video of Roc Raida from the 95 DMCs:

My condolences go out to his family, his crew, and his fans.
