Founded in 1989 with the intention of dethroning the reigning battle-DJs of the moment, Clark Kent's Supermen, the crew has seen several changes of membership since its inception. With the departure of Rob Swift in 2004 Roc Raida, the only remaining founding member of the original X-Men and Total Eclipse welcomed virtuoso turntablists DJ Boogie Blind (Pharoahe Monch/2000 Vestax World Champ) and DJ Precision (Beatdown World Champ 2002) as official members of the touring group. With its latest members, The X-ecutioners now restructure as a four-man DJ band again for the first time since the departure of Mista Sinista. Watch out for the X-ecutioners new stage show which will bring much needed excitement to the turntable genre touring in support of their "Revolutions" release and their upcoming "Xpansion" mix cd.
Over the years the X-ecutioner's have toured the world many times over and have opened up for Linkin Park and most recently toured with and opened up for Eminem on the "Anger Management" World Tour with Eminem, Ludicris, Xibit and Papa Roach.
