blame it on Meka April 9, 2015

It’s been said numerous times over, but it must be mentioned once again: if it weren’t for Kool Herc, hip hop as a global influence may not even exist today. The unequivocal father of hip hop sat down with Combat Jack and Premium Pete for an extensive interview.

The father of Hip Hop Kool Herc gives us a very rare interview documenting the birth of Hip Hop, how he ran the game throughout the 1970’s, how his man Coke La Rock was the very first rap emcee, the records he discovered, how he almost died for this culture, his battle with drugs, health issues and his top five emcees and deejays. This one is for the history books. We do this for the culture.
