    yeah, I saw this earlier on DJ Scratch’s Twitter. Our emcees take health for granted and its sad how Males fans look at someone like LL Cool J as just a Sex Symbol because of his body. Mothafucka is in Shape & Healthy with his. Fat Joe is doing the same. Hip Hop has to support a healthier lifestyle. These rappers aren’t teens anymore !!

     America has too much fatty foods and no exercise too much tv watching and No Exercise got to stay out of McDonalds and KFC and get some roughage in the system. i mean everyone is overweight nowadays it is getting crazy.

      Um, yeah, all that weed never really lowered E’s blood pressure, it shot it up. Alot of rappers are suffereing form the shit they’ve been rapping about, drugs, booze, etc. Fat Joe Smartened up, so has Pharoah Monche. it’s about time we get away from the weed and the booze….promoting alcoholism is getting alot of us in trouble.

    Glad all is well, and E keep an Eye on That Hypertension bro. When my Pops was living he too was minutes from death from what I was informed by a pharmacist where he checked his Pressure. I rushed him to the hospital and was fortunate enough to get him there in time so Im very much aware of how serious that thing can be…

    The story that rappers have led you to believe is being proved untrue over and over again. If you are a rapper and live and unhealthy lifestyle rather it be excessive drinking and drugging do not excercise and have a cunclean diet you too will die.
