Dj Kool Herc - The Father of Hip Hop


#DJKoolHerc has taken legal action against #HBO’s popular music series, “#Vinyl,” over how he was portrayed on the show. The 61-year-old musician, whose real name is Clive Campbell, filed legal documents claiming that the “Mr. Campbell” character on the show is actually him. Herc and his lawyers allege that when HBO offered him $10,000 for “waiving his rights and consultation services regarding the show,” he declined to sign off on the offer. However, HBO denies the agreement was meant to get Herc’s permission to use his likeness, especially since the “Mr. Campbell” character wasn’t portrayed in a negative light. The Bronx DJ is seeking more than $10,000 from HBO. #entertainmentnews
