Rob Swift Roc’s for Roc Raida
Big shouts to Adam’s World Blog for always letting me jack his site content!
When someone passes away we can mourn them, celebrate their life, or do a little bit of both. For DJ Rob Swift, he decided it was time to celebrate the life of his friend Roc Raida, who passed away in 2009 from cardiac arrest. The project Swift has put together, titled Roc For Raida, features both the music and the thoughts on the fallen X-Ecutioners member. Swift describes it as “a really honest and genuine representation of Roc Raida the artist, the person, the human being.” Not only that, Swift is convinced that Roc had a hand in putting it together, and he told me the interesting story of how. In addition to discussing how the album came to fruition, Swift also shared his ideas on how we as a community stay positive despite so many of our peers passing away, and he revealed the one rapper who’s brain he’d love to pick.

D-Sisive ‘Ghetto Bastard’
If you are unfamiliar with Naughty by Nature’s 1991 hit ‘Ghetto Bastard’ you are not much of a Hip-Hop fan, or at least haven’t been one for very long…yeah, yeah I know there’s tons of artists out there and all, but there are just some songs that you should at least have heard of. This is one of them and Canadian MC D-Sisive does an incredible job capturing the emotional feeling of this song in a completely different context. DOOOOPE!
and if you are unfamiliar with the original track here’s the video…Ohh Yo! MTV Raps! I miss you
