10-17-09 - Radio Show - Roc Raida Tribute / Rob Swift Interview

On October 17, DJ Rob Swift came to Pittsburgh for Classic Material's Grand Master DJ Roc Raida tribute/fundraiser. It was one of the best performances I have ever seen. DJ Selecta, DJ SMI, and DJ Hank D held down the 1's and 2's for most of the night prior to Rob performing. The local break-dancers did their thing for nearly two hours, getting the quickly-growing crowd hype!! BZE also came through and blessed the mic, while Knowledge Build Allah hosted the event. Another special guest also made an appearance, DJ Z-Trip, who was performing at the Andy Warhol Museum earlier in that night. Needless to say, magic happened. Videos from the event are coming soon.

A week prior to the event, I did a tribute to Roc Raida on my radio show. DJ Rob Swift gave me an incredible interview over the phone during the show. I have separated the two and posted them below.
