Happy Birthday: Grandmaster Roc Raida

Grandmaster Roc Raida
(May 17, 1972 – September 19, 2009)

We pay our respects and say happy birthday to Anthony Williams, better known as Grandmaster Roc Raida, the greatest turntablist of all time. Winner of the 1995 DMC World DJ Championship and was inducted into the DMC Hall of Fame in 1999, he was also a DJ and producer for the DJ group The X-Ecutioners. Raida produced songs for artists including Ill Al Skratch, Showbiz and A.G., the Jungle Brothers, Mad Skillz, Smif-n-Wessun, Jehst and Big Pun, and served as the DJ for MF Grimm (in the mid-1990's) and Busta Rhymes.
