Grand Master Roc Raida @ Viva Function Centre
Friday 19 May 2006
Last night Grand Master Roc Raida of the X-Ecutioners was playing a set in Adelaide, so the Streets On Beats team went and checked it out. Roc Raida played for about an hour and a half to a small crowd of around 150-200 people. Starting with a lot of Eastcoast stuff like Wu-Tang, Busta, Big L, Black Sheep and ONYX just getting scratched & cut up. He also played a couple of Snoop tracks to represent the west. He then played some old school beats which he mixed into some old 70's-80's rock, proving that he can scratch over anything and it will still sound good.
Finally near the end of the night he started doing what we had all come to see, some crazy breaks with body tricks at incredable speeds.
Here are a couple of flicks of the show, more were taken although the lighting was shit, even worse than these.
