Last year, Hip Hop lost one of its true masters, in New York turntablist and 1995 DMC World Champion Roc Raida. The longtime member of the X-Ecutioners and popular deejay for a number of high profile emcees passed away last September after complications from a spinal injury. It has been now announced that watch-maker Flüd is honoring the scratch icon with a limited edition “Tableturns” watch for Raida.
