DJ Kool Herc, the inventor of breakbeats and hip-hop founding father, is allegedly not in a good way and is described as "very sick". Herc apparently does not have valid health insurance and needs help to pay for the surgery he requires.
DJ Premier spoke of Herc saying that as he was a DJ and not a producer, he made little money for all the hard work he put into establishing hip-hop in the early days. Premier is urging people to donate what they can to help one of the founding fathers.
