BREAKING: Busta Rhymes Announces DJ Roc Raida's Death, "My Personal DJ Is Gone"

Busta announced the unexpected news via his Twitter account Saturday afternoon.

"I am sorry 2 say that on this day at 2:05 Sept 19th we lost another incredible life...Dj Roc Raida died 2day my personal Dj is gone... I just wanna thank everyone 4 ur love and support and ur prayers...We will never let ur name die Roc...We love u and will 4ever miss u...RIP." (Busta Rhymes' Twitter)

This was later followed by a stream of Twitter "R.I.P.'s" from RZA, DJ Drama, N.O.R.E., Big Pooh, Talib Kweli and Kid Capri.

"yesterday i shouted out dj's across the world, dj am and dj jam master jay, today i say rest in peace to a close friend dj roc raider!!!!," Capri wrote. "dj roc raider was a real beast at his talent, and a very humble soldier, i will miss the homie, im deeply sadden, god bless his soul." (Kid Capri's Twitter)

Raida was reportedly checked into a hospital earlier this month after becoming the victim of a car accident.

While details could not be confirmed, it was reported that Roc Raida suffered injuries to his spine during the accident. "Anthony Williams p/k/a GM Roc Raida is in the hospital,' Roc Raida's family confirmed in a statement. 'His family thanks all of his fans for the well wishes and prayers. At this time please allow him and his family privacy to deal with the matter. The rumors and chatter is not accurate and we will release something more in detail at a later time. Thank you on behalf of the family and close friends.'
