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.
