DJ Kool Herc, often referred to as the "Father of Hip Hop," has been hospitalized, according to DJPremierBlog.com.
"Kool Herc is very sick...Kool Herc is not doing well," explained DJ Premier. "It's funny how we actually have a father of a culture [who] still lives, where in some cultures, they're already dead and gone..."
"Since he's very sick and has no insurance, uses a metro card to get around, needs to pay his bills so he can get out of the hospital, it's ill... If you don't know about it, now you know about it. ...We spoke today, and he needs some help to pay his bills for the hospital because he can't hold it down. And being that he is the man who set this whole culture off, ya'll should be wanting to do it any type of way that you can. People know how to reach us."
If you are interested in learning how to help, email email@example.com to remain updated on any details regarding the matter.
HipHopDX.com extends our well wishes to DJ Kool Herc for a speedy recovery.
UPDATE: DJ Tony Touch recently Tweeted that he has spoken to Herc and that he has been released from the hospital. According to Tony, Kool Herc is in "good spirits" but needs a surgical procedure.

New Rob Rush joint produced by Maclane. Rob has been behind the scenes mostly making the Rec-League machine work but he stepped into the booth this week on this heavy west coast beat produced by the new Rec-League secret weapon, Maclane. You can hear Rob on QM‘s release “Happy Hour“, as well as Richie Cunning‘s mixtape “Late Night Special“, also running the merch booth for Richie Cunning while he was touring with the mighty Hieroglyphics. Rob Rush was featured heavily on last years Rec-League release “Season Two” as well and continues to work on all angles of the Rec-League / Routine Fly operation.
Rob is also me, the guy sending you these emails each weak. Thanks for the love!
January 31st 2011 -- Native Virginian, singer-songwriter, Angela "Mecca" Scott is definitely no stranger to the recording industry. As a matter of fact, her first foray into the business came courtesy of, arguably, the hottest emcee in the game, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter.
That's actually Angela Scott scattin' her way through the catchy chorus on the Ski produced, "Feelin' It," which samples Ahmad Jamal's "Pastures," the fourth and final entry from Jigga Man's platinum-plus classic solo debut, Reasonable Doubt .
Angela later went on to appear on notable songs from the likes of Camp Lo ["Sky Box"] and AZ ["Your World Don't Stop"], with her most recent offering being "Google Me," which she wrote for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak. After a few false starts stemming from both shady business deals and personal hardships, the impressive veteran songstress has valiantly returned and is more than ready to take the music world by storm.
Currently readying the release of her "official" premiere outing, Angela Scott vs. Mecca, fueled by her brand new Marcus Frazier (Track House Productions) laced warm-up single, the appropriately titled, "I'm Free," 2011 is already shaping up to FINALLY be the year of Angela "Mecca" Scott -- Brace Yourselves! www.meccastylemusic.com .
Here is a joint from my album Working Class Legend: Overtime that I dropped recently. The song is My People. It's produced by my homie Stona straight from Poland! It's one of my personal favorites from this project. I discuss my thoughts on the current state of hip hop. Not just the music but the culture that plenty of people seem to have forgotten.
