  1. Help Herc GIVE IT UP..

  2. Anyone know this? where you can contact?? if anyone has information please sirvampire11@hotmail.com .. thanks

  3. man, i have no money to spare
    and even if I’d want to send a symbolic 10$, I don’t have a bank account or credit card or anything like that so
    who in their right mind would use what is called “western medicine” for anything else than ER cases?!
    it’s the only thing it’s good at
    for this guy and ANYONE else in the same condition (and not only),
    a. asparagus
    b. beetroot (the best)
    c. watermelon & cucumber
    a lot
    natural cures r not intense as medicines u find in pharmacies
    also good:
    cider vinegar, carrots, black grapes, cabbage (sauerkraut if available)
    salt, soy, seafood, coffee, tea, alcohol, chili
    I hope this will benefit Herc or at least smone…
    There’s no discussion page on his website, just a “donate” button…
    no comment
    I hope this message will get to him somehow
    even if wants to go the stupid western medicine way,
    he is “the father of hip-hop”, isn’t he?
    wtf has he to struggle to raise a few hundred thousand $ when there r so many filthy rich rappers?!


  4. where is jay z puffy and the rest of the hiphop billionaires club?
    they got enough money to burn in clubs but no money for the oldschool…

    read yesterday the famous most used hiphop amen break drummer died homeless in 2006, never got a penny for royalties or sample use…
