How Jadakiss And Styles P Are Bringing Juice Bars To The Hood [INSIGHTS]...

You don’t have to be a legendary rapper in order to help your community, but it certainly helps.

Jadakiss and Styles P are bonafide hip-hop heavyweights whose careers have spanned three decades, but their legacies may be solidified by something other than their music.

Through their chain of juice bars, Juices For Life, The LOX members are looking to provide a much-needed place for people in low-income neighborhoods to consume something good for them. These neighborhoods are often referred to as “food deserts,” since access to nutritional food is virtually nonexistent.

Styles P said, "In the poorer communities, mostly, the money gets invested in liquor stores and the kind of things we don’t need."

Jadakiss and Styles P are leading by example and looking to put an end to food deserts through their Juices For Life locations, but they aren’t alone.

Jeff Brown, the founder and CEO of Brown’s Super Stores, a chain of grocery stores that offers high quality and nutritional food at affordable prices, said, "What Jadakiss and Styles P are doing, they’re successful, and they don’t need to be concerned about society... They’re deciding to use their success to make a difference for people. I think if we all did that, we’d fix a lot of our country’s problems."

With its three locations, Juices For Life is giving people unprecedented access to nutritional options in the Bronx and Yonkers, New York, with hopes of expanding in the near future.

KXNG Crooked f/ Truth Ali “Don't Close Your Eyes (Ashamed)”

Kxng Crooked of Slaughterhouse (Shady Records) opens up about alcoholism, depression and suicide in this brand new music video that was filmed in Louisville, Kentucky. Back in July, Billboard premiered the demo version of the audio to "Don't Close Your Eyes (Ashamed)" to celebrate the birthday of the late Keith Whitley. This is the official "retail" version produced by Jonathan Hay and Ajami. This is from the forthcoming release, The Urban Hitchcock, LP that features Cyhi The Prynce, Chino XL, Canibus, Professor Griff from Public Enemy, Royce Da 5'9, Skyzoo, Planet Asia and more collaborations from Kxng Crooked which will be released on 10-5-15.

“I’ve been in several dark places in my life,” Crooked told MTV. Betrayed by those closest to me, or feelings of hopelessness in situations I can’t control, or even others trying to remove me from this earth. It takes its toll. I have to rise above and keep moving forward for myself and my loved ones. I like to meditate and read a lot so that helps. Music is my ultimate medicine, though.”

"We stay hard til we're broken down and in love. My mother used to tell me that 'one day one of them girls are going to hold you down'. In other words, you'll be forced to settle down one day. I've never been a love hater. I just wasn't quite looking for it. This joint represents some of the thoughts that go through the mind of a young man playing the field." Click here to stream Sincere on Bandcamp.
