Last week, we got the sad news about DJ Kool Herc‘s health condition, and his need for financial assistance. Thankfully, some members of the hip-hop community have taken it upon themselves to help out. To help raise awareness and funds, Oakland’s DJ Child, along with Ras Terms & Safety 1st (Black Diamond Shining) put together this vid to pay homage, DJ Child Presents STRENGTH – A Tribute Mix Livicated to DJ Kool Herc. Says DJ Child: “I feel that we as a culture glorify death rather than honor life—let’s shift the paradigm of this mindstate and act to provide strength & support for individuals while they are still here to appreciate it.” It’s not too late to make a donation, head over to his site to help Herc out. Visit our fam at Large Up to download DJ Child’s full 30 minute tribute mix and to find info on BDS’ benefit event next Friday.
