Kool DJ Herc, the deejay many credit with founding hip hop music is very ill without health insurance to help him pay his medical bills.

DJ Premier of the group Gangstarr said on his Sirius radio show:

For those that know about Hip-Hop, who we call the father of Hip-Hop, Kool Herc, is not doing well. It’s funny how we have a father of a culture that still lives, where as in some cultures they are dead and gone even though they may still be worshiped or reflected on in some kind of way. Since he’s very sick and has no insurance … he needs to pay his bills so he can get out of hospital.
