DJ Kool Herc is gravely ill, the hip-hop pioneer’s family said Monday that he has “serious kidney stones” that require a surgery he can’t afford.
“He’s been in terrible pain for months,” said Herc’s sister Cindy Campbell. “The doctors say they’ve got to come out, but we just don’t have the money.”
Kool Herc Shortly Released This Statement Tuesday february 1, 2011
“We live in one of the superpowers of the world!” Give me your tired, your poor … ‘ and then you don’t take care of them? There should be no weak ants in the colony. There shouldn’t be anyone fighting for health care! This has been going on too damn long! We fought for 1520 Sedgwick to get landmark status, and in 2007, New York State officially recognized it as the ‘Birthplace of Hip Hop’. Now we are fighting for health care not just for me, but for everyone. I see this situation as another quest for me to shine light on a sensitive issue for the community. I’m an instrument of God. I’m here for a purpose and I want to be here for the solution.”
Its funny how they reach out to people who are struggling day to day in these hard times for a donation, Instead of DEMANDING from the people who have been Financially successfully in this HIP HOP CULTURE for years. Must i Say Names?? Or maybe just the people who blow a million dollars in strip clubs, chains,cars. U GET THE PICTURE!! That Bill can be paid in a matter of minutes, Lets see who really steps to the plate. Don’t be surprised, the moment of truth starts now!!!
