ROC ON ( May 17, 1972 - Sept 19, 2009 )

B.B. Kings Tribute Show (last year)

Grandmaster Status
Roc Raida passed 1 year ago today. One of the biggest shockers to hit the hip-hop world since the death of JMJ. Raida was participating in rigorous training under Krav Maga, a self-defense martial arts system that originated in Israel and is utilized by both military and civilians. The focus of the system is on using combat in “real-life” situations such as clubs and street corners, and emphasizes quick, vicious attacks to specific body parts. Raida had been studying this unique style for the past two years, and his 15 year old daughter had recently begun participating.A freak training injury occurred, causing Raida to go into cardiac arrest and pass away tragically at the age of 37.
Here's a little Dusty but Digi tribute I put together to honor one of the greatest DJ's of all time.
Grab what you want and respect the technics.
