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.
