The good people over at Saturn Never Sleeps have put together this beautiful 18-track compilation in honor of Hip Hop pioneer DJ Kool Herc as a way of saying thank you to the legendary DJ for his contribution to music and culture. The compilation includes music from Dam-Funk, Ursula Rucker, Damon Bennett, Hezekiah and many more, which you can listen to and download below.
The legendary Kool Herc recently fell seriously ill to kidney stones earlier in 2011 and is without health insurance. In order to help him deal with his health issues and mounting medical bills, the Hip Hop community have come together to create the DJ Kool Herc Fund – to donate, visit djkoolherc.com.
