During his Live From HeadQuarterz show on Sirius radio this past weekend, DJ Premier revealed that DJ Kool Herc, widely regarded as one of the Founding Fathers of Hip-Hop, has been plagued with an unspecified health issue and is in dire need of financial assistance. Although exact details of Herc’s illness have yet to be revealed, (though they really aren’t our business anyway), I think it’s unfortunate that one of the guys directly responsible for bringing so much joy and prosperity to others has to find himself in such a situation in this day and age. I think it’s important, especially for people who work in the music industry, or eat in one way or another from this culture, to take a few minutes and donate whatever you can to Herc’s medical fund. Here’s to hoping for a full recovery and many more years of health.
