Roc Raida Injured

While there's been no official word or explanation, the beat on twitter is that Roc Raida is in the hospital, having some kind of spinal surgery - I saw Talib Kweli mention an accident during a karate class? I don't know what the hell is going on with this Summer, I just hope he pulls through - he's truly a Grandmaster, and one of my favorite turntablists, ever. Need some proof?

Roc Raida "X-Men Style Beatz" (from Return Of The DJ, Vol 2)

Here's a collection of instructional videos Roc Raida did with DJVIBE.com.

EDIT (9/19/2009) Roc Raida has died.
