Kool Herc Needs Your Help

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.

Donations can be made by check to:

Kool Herc Productions
P.O. Box 20472
Huntington Station, NY 11746

Payable to: Kool Herc

or via Paypal to: cindycampbell1@aol.com

    not being insensitive, but you cant really ask people to fork over their hard earned money as a donation to the dude if you wont even tell us whats wrong with him.

    I just genuinely don’t like the taste. Add the fish smell and that pretty much precludes me from trying anything else. I used to eat cod fish as a very young tyke, though…

    I hope he gets better too.. but if all the sites and artist solicinting donations in his name pooled togeather they money there would be no need to to hit the fans up.

    I mean aint like we talkin bout Haiti.. were its millions of dollars and shit.
    We talkin bout a health bill, you sayin if a couple rappers abstained from the strip club for one week they couldnt help Herc out?

    this is dumb..

    how you gonna ask a nigga for financial help.. and then, in the same sentence, tell a nigga its none of your business what you helping for..

    FOH, b..

    you need to reword that…

  13. b-ease Says:

    Like Cashmere said tho, this really does speak alot to the health care situation. Why is ANYbody in the World’s wealthiest country in this position?

  14. Cypher Says:

    All i’m sayin is he couldnt get healthcare before now?.. he didnt have no plans for the future?..

    Just cause you’re famous doenst allow you to be irresponsible… if any thing a celebrity has more opportunities to be financially set then the average person.

    Holler at me theres a single mom needing a donation..

    nah i was talking charlie and his wild weekend but i had a C&P fail

    but yea it’s sad herc has no healthcare at all….hip hop legend or not

    barring aids or cancer… there really isnt a reason to not have health issurance or money set aside for when you get old.

    You make 10 dollars you need to save six..

    I see that side, but who knows what dude’s income was like? Health care is mad expensive if you’re paying out of pocket, and without it, a hospital stay of any real length is essentially unaffordable.

  20. DJ Chase Says:

    YO! This Ghostface blog has me in tears right now… nigga said this nigga Drake is soft man. If you cut him open, you gon get feathers flying around the room and shit.

    true… So here’s another question, why are artists and websites hitting fans up for money.

    Is this confirmed? not a scam or anything.

    shoulda been a second question mark there.

    im allergic to shellfish, but i still eat Lobster Tails… but id have to drink a Pepsi or Coke to burn that terrible throat itching sensation away…

    i dont fuck with no other shellfish though… shit is stinky and nasty

    ^^
    It’s really just Premier as far as artists soliciting, and the website owners are really just fans too. And like hl, land, and some other cats said, being that the news just dropped, I wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of it winds up being taken care of by some artists.

    i woke in the middle of the night remembering that shit, and LOLing in the bed…

  34. Strongchef Says:

    You cant be serious, there is enough over paid rappers ONE of them need to break down Eskay lets start with your man Jay z he could prolly pay the bills himself. He was pretty much massaging his balls at yankee stadium. It could also prolly work out to be a write off… Artists need to step up not fans. I do appreciate you saying “especially people in the industry” though…

    thats the truth. anyone here could name 15 rappers that could easily donate 20k each and cover everything.

    but i could see how he needs help financially. he came up in an era where there wasnt alot of money to be made in this game.
