Although the sad news of DJ Roc Raida’s death is true, there seems to be some confusion as to what actually killed the DJ. Some report it was a martial arts accident while others maintain it was due to injuries from a car accident.
Roc Raida was recently in an mixed martial arts accident, something the DJ had been involved in for years. Williams had two different surgeries and was released to an inpatient physical therapy center, but he began having complications and passed away.
Others reported it Roc Raida’s death was not from a martial arts accident but a car accident?
