DJ Kool Herc On ‘The Combat Jack Show’


Father Knows Best.

Kool Herc, the man responsible for this thing of ours, recently kicked it on The Combat Jack Show. For a hour and a half he spoke on his origins, creating hip-hop, drugs, and everything in between. Dig in your pocket and pay homage.

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!

    Almost 2 hours to listen to this old head? No I don’t think so. He’s no 50 or g unit.

      This “old head” is LITERALLY the beginning of Hip-Hop Culture. I assume you just don’t know better so I’ll give you a pass and just pray for yo’ hopeless ass. #Blessings

    The father of hip hop…. Listening to him, industry rap nigguz have been snakes and cheats from the beginning.

    It’s fitting the mentality and nature of the “fan base”, “journalists” and so called “gatekeepers.”

    Without this guy….this genre would not be what it was…shit may not of even been hiphop
