During the latest Live From Headqcourterz show, Premo let the people know that the Father of Hip-Hop, DJ Kool Herc is currently hospitalized. While information is slim on the exact details, it is known that he will be needing surgery, and being that he does not have access to health insurance, Premo and the rest of the Hip-Hop community is asking anyone who is willing and able to help out financially. Premo summed it nicely when he stated:
"We actually have a father of a culture that still lives, where in some cultures, you know, they already dead and gone, even though they may still be worshiped or reflected on in some type of way."
