Kool Herc Needs Your Help

As you may have heard by now, Kool Herc is in the hospital for unidentified health issues. The man widely credited for laying the foundation of hip-hop is in dire need of financial assistance, according to DJ Premier. He doesn’t have health insurance, and I’m sure his family could use the help. My hope is that there’s a good Samaritan out there who will heed the call and write this man a check. The hip-hop nation thanks you in advance.

Peace, love and speedy recovery to Herc.



Rizoh is the most powerful man in all the lands. He lives in Houston where he earned a BS in Nerf Herding. He's the founder of The Rap Up, the former editor of Roc4Life.com, and is in the Grammy-awaiting band Pervertable Disciples.
