"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).
Boogie Blind, Daddy Dog, Roli Rho, Kuttin Kandi, Riz, JS-1,
Jab, Sugar Cuts, Neil Armstrong, Fat Fingaz, Q-Bert,
Mixmaster Mike, A-Trak, J-Rocc, Babu, Rhettmatic, Scratch,
Revolution, Rahzel, Bobbito, A.G., Lord Finesse, Dr.
Butcher, Vin Roc, DJ Grouch, Freestyle, Spictakular,
Shortkut, Supreme and Tame One.
We ended up going an hour longer then we should have. In
between calls I found some old cassette tapes of radio show
appearances by the X-Men. I hope you enjoy listening to the
show as much as I did. Thanks to the whole Halftime crew for
making this run smooth; Skizz, Petey Cologne and Marz One.
To everyone that showed up or called in, I love you all.
R.I.P. Grand Master Roc Raida. We're going to miss you"
