Hip Hop's founding Father ,Dj Kool Herc Is Gravely Ill,Seeking donations to help pay medical bills

The man credited with being "The Founding Father Of Hip Hop" is gravely ill & is reaching out for public assistance to help pay his medical bills.

Kool Herc is very sick, " Dj Premier told listeners on his XM satellite radio show according to AllHipHop. "For those that know about hip hop, who we call the father of hip hop, Kool Herc, is
not doing well. Its funny how we have a father of a culture that still lives,where as in some cultures they are dead & gone even though they may still be worshiped or reflected on in some kind of way."
Dj Tony Touch announced via Twitter that Herc will be undergoing surgery tomorrow. (Tuesday,February 1)
Kool Herc is reportedly ok & in good spirits.
The call for help is because Herc doesn't have health insurance. If you've ever been to the hospital without it , you know how you are treated.
For all donations to Kool Herc, send to : Kool Herc Productions PO Box 20472 Huntington Station, NY 11746
"Being as though he is the man that set this whole culture off, yall (the fans) should be willing to help any type of way you can." Premier added

Russell Simmons Rules for Getting Super Rich

Now, as Chairman and CEO of Rush Communications, Simmons’ philosophy is spiritual and based on the inner peace he has found from 15 years of practicing yoga and meditation. So without further ado, here are: Russell Simmons’ Top Principles to Super Richness

#1 Give Your Talents Until They Can’t Live Without It

“Wake up in the morning and find out what you want to give as opposed to what you want to get,” he says. “Through this practice of becoming a good giver you become a good getter.”

Simmons gives examples of many of his former selfless, tireless and upaid interns that went on to greatness, including Sean Combs, Kevin Liles, and Julie Greenwald, recently named COO of Atlantic Records Group.

“Those who focus on being good servants usually attract the most in the end,” he says.

Basically, offer your talents and skills for free and the rewards will find you.

#2 Relentlessly Pursue Your Goals Without Appearing Needy

Simmons’ law of attraction says: “when you chase things, they will always run from you.”

This principle goes hand-in-hand with principle number one by virtue of the more you give, the more good that will just find you.

#3 If You Don’t Love it, Leave it Alone

This is not only the idea that you should do what you love and a wealth of richness will follow, but the idea that you should only do things you are “karmically” comfortable doing.

“People can sell anything,” from bombs to drugs, he says, even though there are very serious ramifications to those actions. “I want to stress that making money just for the sake of getting paid is a pedestrian activity that you can rise above.”

If you don’t love it, don’t do it.

#4 Let Go of the Results

“You really have no control over the results, you have control over the action,” he says. “So make sure you perform your action and your duty well.”

In the accompanying clip, he explains that he has no recollection of his very first paycheck, but says he certainly does remember making his first good record.

“All I could think is ‘when my friends hear this record’ it will make them so happy,” he reminisces. “Do things you love. Do things that you have faith will make other people happy and that will give back what you give them.”

#5 Get Open

“You want to always be open, creative and fluid as possible, and never become rigid, old or tight,” he writes, encouraging readers to let loose and lower your defenses.

And if you’re thinking these principles are easy for someone worth millions to say, Aaron asks him about that too in the accompanying clip.

The Joy of Giving

Simmons’ list of his successes are deep but the endeavors most important to him may be those that go along with his first principle listed above. The idea of being a “good giver.”

He is known globally for not only his business acumen, but also his commitment to philanthropy. Simmons has devoted an entire division of empire to charity and non-profit work.
