This is dope.

This is another time lapse video by J “masaro” G on Grandmaster DJ Roc Raida (R.I.P., May 18, 1972 September 19, 2009), the first skratch DJ from NYC to win the DMC champ back in 1995.
The beat is track 3 from his Champion Sound Mixtape (2003).
The illustration is done in Ball Pen & Ink within a 6.5 hours period. The video is complied with still pictures taken approx every 5 minutes.
Roc Raida is one of the pioneers for the turntablist culture and also one of the infamous members of the Xecutioner crew.
Anybody that had met him before can tell you that he got this charismatic ” humble swagga” to him….!!!
Roc You will be missed but def not forgotten!

DJ Eclipse – The Halftime Show Roc Raida Tribute

Friday, September 25th, 2009


I’ll just let Eclipse explain:

On Sunday night I threw together a short Roc Raida tribute set at the beginning of my Sirius show. On Monday night Premier and I held our monthly “Like They Used To Say” party at APT which we dedicated to Roc Raida and were able to raise over $4,000 for his family. On Wednesday night I wanted to do a proper tribute show so I contemplated on what to do. As I compiled every song I could that Raida was featured on (production or scratches) I thought it would be better to reach out to his friends and get their take on what the man meant to them. What started out as a dozen or so people that I intended to talk to snowballed into phone call after phone call of friends wanting to share stories. Please forgive me if I left out someone’s name (or misspelled) in this email, but following is a list of who called or showed up at station (no particular order).
