According to Premier, Kool Herc, one of Hip Hop’s founding fathers, is seriously ill (here is an update on the story).
Our thoughts go out to Herc and his family.

damn. hope he is okay.
Me too. But looks like he's going to have a lot of trouble paying his bills.
 yeah, going to be tough without insurance.
hopefully primo and some others can help out for the time being.
They better help; the mega stars have the means to largely due to him. If not, like someone else commented, they better not be there for his funeral or any kinda tribute. It's a shame that something like this illustrates the problems "regular" folk experience without insurance; like it's all their fault they don't have it.
