The X-Ecutioners is a group of hip hop DJs/turntablists from New York. They used to include 11 members and were originally called X-Men, after the Marvel Comics characters, but had to change their name due to copyright infringement. The crew was later reduced to members Rob Swift, Roc Raida, Total Eclipse, and Mista Sinista, the last of whom later left the group. Their original name was chosen partly because Super DJ Clark Kent's crew of DJs was called the Supermen. They have been known to do several collaborations with Linkin Park, especially the group's MC, Mike Shinoda.Read More...
