Founded by Dr. Olajide Williams of Columbia University, this amazing not-for-profit organization that uses Hip Hop to both educate and entertain has reached over 20,000 underprivileged school children with health education programs that include recognizing the symptoms of stroke and the childhood obesity eradication campaign that partnered with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” and the Partnership for a Healthier America to produce the album that has had over 50,000 downloads and counting.
