SOBs pays tribute to the Grand Master Roc Raida, with the help of some great musicians. All proceeds from the show go to the family of the recently deceased pioneer. Mostly known for his spectacular talent as a DJ, Roca Raida has successfully contributed to the hip hop world. Roca Raida, also known as Anthony Williams, was considered a professional at working with turntables, DJ'ing at enormous events, and producing for well-known artists such as Busta Rhymes and Big Pun. Roc Raida formed an ultimate DJ group with a few other artists that quickly became known as, The X-Ecutioners. Throughout the late 90's and early 2000's, the group released three albums but Roca Raida felt it was time to work on a solo album. Despite the unfortunate loss of a talented artist, his gift for creating quality spin moves and distinctive cuts on a turntable will continue to be remembered by his fans. Join us in his celebration as S.O.B.'s hosts a benefit concert for Roc Raida's family. Artists such as,Immortal Technique, Brand Nubian with Grand Puba, The Beatnuts, Large Professor, DITC, and many more will be performing on November 17th, as a tribute to the legendary DJ.
