Earlier this month I posted an article showcasing DJ Kool Herc as my Black History Month feature for February and shared my insight & opinion on his history and his current health crisis.

In case you didn't catch that article, (read more HERE) what's basically going on is one of Hip Hop's founding fathers life is in threatening conditions due to a bad case of kidney stones. He recently had some work done that is actually causing more harm than good. His hospital tab is already in a $10,000 debt and the surgery he needs is backed by any health insurance. Thats right. The legendary DJ doesn't have Health Insurance.
Goes to show you how common our America's Health Insurance crisis is.

According to DJ Premier earlier this week, Herc is "very sick and is in need of surgery, the exact nature of the Hip-Hop founder’s illness has yet to be revealed."

One of North Carolina's popular underground Mixtape DJ's recently donated to the Kool Herc Foundation which was first highly announced and promoted by DJ Premier.

"When it comes to the Hip Hop community, Premier be on it." -DJ Bski

DJ Bski has not only showcased his DJ skills and Mixtape hosting abilities for hundreds of artists across this state but has done what many DJs and Hip Hop lovers across the country are doing. Forgiving Kool Herc's past and only focusing on the positive and showing support. He founded the DJ techniques. I salute DJ Bski.

Be sure to follow him on Twitter @DjBski and join him and his coalition at the Build Ya Brand DJs website and get network with some of the NC Music Industry's most respected and supportive DJs.

In the meantime, donations to Kool Herc can be sent to: Kool Herc Productions PO Box 20472 Huntington Station, NY 11746
or PAYPAL cindycampbell1(at)aol(dot)com.
