Dart Adams presents A Tale Of Ten Trailers 20 AKA The Great Adventures Of Grandmaster Roc Raida Edition

This edition of A Tale Of Ten Trailers is dedicated to the legendary turntablist Grandmaster Roc Raida who passed away recently. He was one of the best to ever touch a pair of Technics 1200's. Not only was he a world champion multiple times and an unmatched performer/battle DJ but he was a DJ for legends such as MF/GM Grimm to Busta Rhymes. He had a gang of well received mixtapes, albums and he did some legendary scratches over quite a few Hip Hop classics. Whether he was in a team routine/demo with the X-Men/X-Ecutioners or just doing body tricks dolo there was no one that could touch Roc Raida's drive, determination, focus or creativity.

Roc Raida worked tirelessly doing something he loved. He felt as though it was his calling. The turntables became an extension of his very soul and he used them as an instrument so masterfully that he was bestowed with the highest honor anyone in Hip Hop can ever hope to achieve, the title of Grandmaster. I've known of Roc Raida for so long that he's one of those people that you just take for granted. I used to watch the VHS tape "The Adventures Of Grandmaster Roc Raida" on Big L's birthday. Now, next time I see it will be in memory of them both. X-Men Forever. Rest In Eternal Peace Grandmaster Roc Raida, I hope you & DJ AM come up with an ill routine in heaven.

Today I offer you all ten more trailers for upcoming film selected by none other than me. I'd also like to pray for the swift recoveries of Kon of Kon & Amir, Kutfather and Hex Murda. We love all of y'all. In order to view each trailer just click on each individual film poster. Enjoy:

Rest In Eternal Peace Grandmaster Roc Raida. You will never be forgotten.
