Hip Hop's Founding Father, DJ Kool Herc Is Gravely Ill. Seeking Donations To Help Pay Medical Bills

The man credited with being The Founding Father of Hip Hop is gravely ill and is reaching out for public assistance to help pay his medical bills.

"Kool Herc is very sick," DJ Premier told listeners on his XM satellite radio show according to  AllHipHop. "For those that know about Hip-Hop, who we call the father of Hip-Hop, Kool Herc, is not doing well. It's funny how we have a father of a culture that still lives, where as in some cultures they are dead and gone even though they may still be worshiped or reflected on in some kind of way."

 

DJ Tony Touch announced via Twitter that Herc will be undergoing surgery tomorrow (Tuesday February 1).

 


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.

For all donations to Kool Herc, send to: Kool Herc Productions PO Box 20472 Huntington Station, NY 11746


"Being as though he is the man that set this whole culture off, y'all [the fans] should be willing any type of way you can." Premier added

My heart goes out...and I too will send help. I won't worry about what anyone else is or isn't doing. It just right if you can relate to his plight and identity and culture.

If this is true, I hope my fellow-yardie gets well soon.

I THINK ALL THE HIP HOP ARTIST SHOULD DONATE SOME MONEY TO HELP HIM , IT'S ONLY RIGHT BECAUSE HE IS ONE OF THEIR OWN.

In new york medicaid won't pay for certain things, ask any body who has been real sick and on welfare. Instead of a root canal medicaid pays for the tooth to be pulled. It wont cover cosmetic surgery unless it is life threatening. That is why obama passed the health law which is not fully in effect yet We got at least two more years before the whole thing kicks in.

I'm not saying if it is or is not a scam. And because of my own financial situation, I definitely wont be kicking in any money. I just felt that the people on carribean fever should know that one of your country men started this whole rap thing. He is truly the godfather.

This guy may be sick; but I smell a lot of BIG SCAM brewing in the picture. Let MTV, BET and other famous artist lead and I am sure folks will follow if it is legit...........
