Over the weekend Roc Raida, legendary DJ champion and member of the cut-tastic turntablist group the X-Ecutioners died of complications arising from a spinal injury.

Besides being one of the illest DJs, most notably incorporating body tricks into his spin routines, Roc Raida also toured as a DJ for Busta Rhymes. He is survived by his wife and three daughters. Nothing more needs to be said, just watch this video of his routine at the 1995 DMC Championships:

Or this video of his “ninja of rap routine” at the 1996 DMC U.S. Championships:
