DJ Kool Herc Is Sick And Unable To Afford Surgery

Sad hip-hop news: Clive "Kool Herc" Campbell, whose block parties in the Bronx in the 1970s gave birth to hip-hop, is sick with an undisclosed illness and having trouble paying his medical bills. A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip suggests, "maybe island/defjam, warner, interscope, can pay dj kool herc's hospital bills?" That would be nice.

In the perfect world, most modern artists would owe this guy big royalties.

Breaking my heart. Donating when I get home.

I can't afford to donate, but I'd be willing to help with the Hip Hop Senior Center. On Saturdays I'll drop by and spin the chi-lites records where beats come from and cook for Kool Moe Dee and Lovebug Starski.
