Kool Herc is the “father” of the Hip-Hop culture; this is not up for debate. The renowned icon stopped through The Combat Jack Show for what surely was an enlightening interview.

Says The Combat Jack Show:

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!

Check out more pics of Herc chilling with the #newmanati in the following pages, too. Listen below.
