Hip Hop’s Founding Father, DJ Kool Herc Is Gravely Ill. Needs our help!!!

DJ Kool Herc has been released from a medical center, but he still needs to treat his “serious kidney stones” that require a surgery he can’t afford. Herc’s sister says:

“He’s been in terrible pain for months…The doctors say they’ve got to come out, but we just don’t have the money.”

Herc is widely known for creating the break beat in the early 70’s. He helped create a key DJing technique that was vital in hip hop.

DJ Premier spoke about Herc on his radio show:

“He needs some help to pay his bills for the hospital because he can’t hold it down…Being that he is the man who set this whole culture off, ya’ll should be wanting to do it any type of way that you can.”

The call for help is because Herc doesn’t have health insurance. If you’ve ever been to the hospital without it, you know how you’re treated.
