DJ Premier Reveals Kool Herc Is In Poor Health…

California Soul 2010 (Chinatown; Soul Sessions Event)

For the mainstream heads (or fans of the mainstream), I know for some of you, maybe you’re not caring about knowing the history of the music you learned to appreciate, but if you love hiphop, then this situation should being sounding off the alarm all across the country. I was one of many who was very fortunate to meet this man last year. In the words of DJ Premier:

“Kool Herc is very sick…Kool Herc is not doing well. It’s funny how we actually have a father of a culture [who] still lives, where in some cultures, they’re already dead and gone…”

“Since he’s very sick and has no insurance, uses a metro card to get around, needs to pay his bills so he can get out of the hospital, it’s ill… If you don’t know about it, now you know about it. …We spoke today, and he needs some help to pay his bills for the hospital because he can’t hold it down. And being that he is the man who set this whole culture off, ya’ll should be wanting to do it any type of way that you can. People know how to reach us.” – via HiphopDX
