DJ Kool Herc Hospitalized

DJ Kool Herc, 55, has been dubbed Hip Hop’s founding father for quite some time.  As such, it is a major blow to the Hip Hop community to learn that he has been hospitalized.  What’s even more tragic, is that he is having difficulty paying for his medical needs.  Herc, known for developing the breakbeat technique as well as providing other services to the Hip Hop community, holds strong feelings towards his craft:

“It ain’t about how much your gun canshoot,” Herc once wrote. ” It ain’t about $200 sneakers. It is not about me being better than you or you being better than me. It’s about you and me, connecting as one.”

Sounds to me like we have all lost sight of the true meaning of Hip Hop.

Specifics on Herc’s condition have not been released to us yet, however for those who are interested in donating can find the necessary information below.  Regardless, we are hoping for a speedy recovery for DJ Kool Herc.
