Roc Raida's Memorial Service Is This Thursday
On top of our own Puja Patel's thoughtful remembrance, we should recommend Hua Hsu's, which explains the weird and transitionally transcendent spot Roc Raida claimed in the DJ universe before his untimely death over the weekend. "Art redraws the boundaries of our imagination, but at a simpler level, it also reminds us of the value of careful, concentrated, for-love-of-craft diligence"--the vitality, in other words, that made this guy interesting even after his chosen medium, "turntablism," turned to ashes at the flame of the laptop and the mp3. Salute Roc Raida this Thursday, at his Harlem memorial:
- Thursday September 24th MT Nebo Baptist Church 1883 Adam Clayton Powell JR Blvd (7th Avenue) & 114th St. Harlem, New York 10am - 12:30 - viewing 12:30- 3pm - service
