The Real Tragedy: Hip-Hop’s Millionaires Aren't Helping DJ Kool Herc

DJ Kool Herc. "To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich." -Muhammad Ali

DJ Kool Herc, The Godfather of Hip-Hop, the first to loop beaks and develop the beat style that set the foundation of the genre, is desperate for aid, being unable to afford health insurance, racking up over $10,000 in hospital bills, and in dire need of kidney stone removal surgery that he can’t afford. Beginning with DJ Premier’s announcement, the fans, famous, and friends are fighting to gather donations, and despite all of the efforts, we’ve yet to see the million dollar hip-hop megastars pitch in to help pay the $10,000 price that is seemingly pennies to them. why.
......
Rick Ross dropped an easy million at The King of Diamonds Miami strip club on his birthday (January 28th) amongst a celebrity crowd including Pharrell and Diddy, both of which, according to Forbes, are worth well into the double-digit millions.

Not long back, Kanye had diamond teeth implanted for what merely seemed a publicity stunt, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy goes platinum, selling 962,000 copies as of January 23rd. Soon after, he spends $180,000 on a watch with his face on it. Nicki Minaj gets Platinum Certification as well with Pink Friday. Eminem sells 741,000 copies of Recovery in its first week.

Combined, as of last year’s numbers in Forbes, Jay-Z and Beyonce are worth over $1 billion. As of August 2010, Forbes lists Akon, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and Ludacris as being worth well over a million dollars each.

Its stuff like this that makes you lose faith in black people - 10 k - that is pennies to them for real. They don't respect Hip Hop.

It's sad that none of these millionaires have not stepped up to the plate ASAP, but its these so called hip hop moguls and celebs that will no longer be existent in the new era we are heading into. But who knows what kind of karma Kool Herc has gained himself also.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
