Michelle Obama Is Releasing A Hip-Hop Album Featuring Doug E. Fresh, DMC And Ashanti

It’s not a surprise that the First Lady takes her fight against child obesity seriously, and now she’s getting into the hip-hop game to help spread awareness. Yesterday, the track listing and a promotional video (above) starring Doug E. Fresh hit the Internet, as Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign teams up with the Partnership For A Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health to release the album, which features 19 tracks and will include ten music videos.

“We believe that music built on cultural cues can inspire kids and families to make healthy choices,” said Dr. Olajide Williams, founder of Hip Hop Public Health, in a statement. ”Its ability to immerse and transport the mind is a great attribute for any educational tool. Throughout history, music has been a great teacher and motivator, from ABC’s and nursery rhymes to religious hymns and national anthems. It is time to harness this power for health.”
