The Father of Hip-Hop, DJ Kool Herc, is Sick & Needs Our Help

Yesterday, news surfaced that the father of hip-hop, Clive Campbell aka DJ Kool Herc is sick. He’s doing better, but is still in need of surgery (for an unnamed condition), and he doesn’t have health insurance. The list can go on forever of people who have benefited (and become millionaires) off of hip-hop. Whether you prosper from hip-hop financially or your quality of life has improved from being able to listen to it on a day to day basis, we all owe thanks to Herc. It’s sad that a man who has done so much for us would be put in a position like this in the first place, but now it’s our time to give back and help one of our own in need. Donations can be sent via check to:

KOOL HERC PRODUCTIONS
P.O. BOX 20472
HUNTINGTON STATION , NY 11746

or donations can be made via paypal to his sister: cindycampbell1@aol.com
