DJ Kool Herc has been Hospitalized

Posted on January 31, 2011 by


DJ Premier announced on his radio show that DJ Kool Herc, one of the pioneers of hip hop as music and as a culture is in the hospital.  From what I have read, there is not too much information except that he will require surgery, and so DJ Premier and others are asking the hip hop community to make donations to help pay for this expensive procedure.  Here is what Premo had to say: “We actually have a father of a culture that still lives, where in some cultures, you know, they already dead and gone, even though they may still be worshiped or reflected on in some type of way.”   Hit the jump to hear how to make donations.  As well as a recording of Premo’s announcement.
