WWW.FLAMPRO.COM aka THE GUDWORD. R.I.P Roc Raida.... Can i please have a moment of silence




Can I please get a moment of silence.

When my sense of mortality is tested and I'm reminded of the fragility of life.
I only become more in love with life and the friends I have been blessed with.

Long live the spirit of Anthony Williams aka Grand wizard Roc Raida. God Bless His Family.

The strangest thing about his death is that,

Ajile Turner




Sunset

also on the same day

R.I.P.

Life is just a moment it takes you out and brings you back in - Roy Ayers

babies die/old people die/innocent people die (plane, trains, automobiles) it's a natural progression of life. You better enjoy it.

But raida and Ajile on the same day passing, two different locations is a mindfuck (pardon my French)
C'est la vie

I got broad strong shoulder
To handle burdens

So the healing process begins. It started in Harlem at a church filled with his family by blood and hip hop.
A few things I took in between tears was the preacher saying how that when someone dies, and they make the programs and put the years the person was born and the year they left. We tend to emphasize on that, when we should emphasize on the dash in between. The time that this person spent on this earth and the people that they touched and shared energy laughs and spirit with. People had traveled from far places to be there ranging from Europe to California. Sitting in the pews were originators of Hip Hop to current relevant artist, official djs east and west coast, well respected journalist, label executives and the Turtabilst/dj community outnumbered them all. As always when talking about wakes and funerals they suck when it comes to the amount of sadness that echos collectively to heaven. I won't touch on that I will celebrate the life and times of a guy I was lucky enough to know pretty well and respected like a MF on the two technique turntables.

I wrote the top part of this blog after he passed, its two weeks later and i have been working on this video for the last 3 days and it makes me melancholy about the fun times we have had on the road. This is also dedicated to my X-Ecutioner road crew. KYU, Boogie Blind, Massa, Marshall, Total Eclipse. It was great seeing you, and we will be X for life. I seldom look back on life its better to keep looking forward, I'm glad i have these memories on tape. I will continue to edit footage and remind you of the skills that these guys gave the world.

How lucky can you be when your friends create an artform that is respected worldwide, when you get to record an album with friends that is a classic in the artform. If you havent heard X-pressions by the X-ecutioners you should. The difference between most dj's and these guys is that there talent is above par. Equal to a Jay Z on the turntables. I was glad to see old friends it was great to talk with John Carluccio of Battle Sounds




I will let his quote sum up this dedication.

In an interview I did with DJ Rob Swift, he described Raida as "precious." I never forgot how pure and fitting that word described Anthony.

-
He was the personification of what many of his harlem brothers only dreamed of -- He saw the world and he did it his way.

-
I'm amazed how even his fiercest DJ opponents (DJ Scratch, Clark Kent, Shake, Supreme) came out today to pay their respects. I guess because in the spirit of competition Anthony's drive for greatness had made them even better. Behind the small quiet exterior was a gifted DJ who truly set the bar high and became a giant in the turntablist world.



Your spirit will live on!



CAN I PLEASE HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE!
