Which celebrities should give back to hip-hop?
Hip-hop’s acknowledged founder, DJ Kool Herc, is involved in a struggle that really shouldn’t even exist.
Herc is calling on rap fans across the world to help him save the music’s birthplace, 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, New York.
According to Allhiphop.com, the location is currently on the auction block as it stands to lose its affordable housing program when its owners, BSR Management, sell the project to a private investment group.
Considering they owe the beginning of their careers to hip-hop, do you think rap moguls like Jay-Z, Diddy and Russell Simmons should have already given Herc the money to keep the historic spot in the hands of the people?
