Food: Styles P Talks Juicing & New Juice Bar

stylesp-2.jpg

In the late 80′s and early 90′s rappers used their music to spread wisdom. One of the tracks that stands out the most for me is “Beef” by KRS ONE where the Blastmaster discusses how eating cow is bad for your health. I had NEVER heard a message like this until this song. It took some years and more research, but I finally stopped eating Beef and have been cow free for the past 15 years.

In addition to eliminating beef from my diet, I started to get into juicing, which started with a fruit smoothie fascination.

It’s amazing the power that music and artist have to provoke thought, yet all we typically hear and many consumers seem to care about is messages of sex, violence, and drugs. That’s why I was more than thrilled to see Styles P (The Lox) has opened up his own juice bar in NYC and has been making his rounds speaking about the importance of juicing.

In the interview below he talks to the good people at Frank 151 about juicing and why he opened up the “Juices For Life” juice bar. It’s great to see a rapper speaking about being healthy in public again. From listening to music kids know what the latest drug is, how to sell it, how much it cost for a lot of it (Mr. 17.5) but can’t tell you what vitamin C does for the body. Time to reverse this trend.

I’m definitely going to check this place out on my next trip to NYC. If your in the BX you find this spot in Parkchester area at 1026 Castle Hill Ave & Chatterton. The reviews on Yelp look pretty great as well.

Happy Juicing.

Food: Heinz Gets New Ketchup Packaging

Heinz unveils the new “Dip & Squeeze” ketchup packet. If you live in the south and have visited a Chick-Fil-A lately you have noticed the new ketchup packets, shaped like an actual ketchup bottle. This is Heinz new to go ketchup packaging, made so you can either dip into the ketchup or squeeze it out like you did in the past with the old packets. The new packaging is designed to be less messy and also provides you with 3 times more ketchup than the traditional packets. I’ve been fortunate to test these things out, the good people at Heinz hit me off with a LOT of samples. So much in fact friends in Atlanta are starting to call me the Ketchup King! HA.

Look for the new “Dip & Squeeze” packets to hit more restaurants as well as grocery stores in the near future.

Health: Fat Joe “Drops A Body” Loses 100 Pounds

I recently caught this on the net. WOW. Congrats for Fat Joe for dropping some pounds. This comes a week after the loss Heavy D.

I personally thought Joe would of thought of dropping the weight after Big Pun passed away back in 2000. Seems like lately artists’ health isuses have been popping up left and right. You had Nate Dogg a few years ago with his two strokes, then Rick Ross recently with his seizures, and just a few days ago I heard news about Erick Sermon having a heart attack. It’s time to WAKE up people. If you don’t take care of your body, your body will take care of you that’s for sure.

But with all that said… Once again Salute to Fat Joe for seeing the light and getting his health on track. He sits down with CNN to talk about how even though the pounds are gone, he still will be known “Fat Joe!”

Dj Spinna 4th Of July BBQ: Video

I know this is like a month late, but better late than never. Here’s some footage from Dj Spinna’s annual 4th of July BBQ in Broooklyn, NY.

People I bumped into that day were Pharoahe Monch, Sadat X, Dj Sarah Love (BBC Radio London), Sucio Smash, Miss Al Boogie, Mazzi, Nelson George, Fresh Daily, P.So, Lisa, and Azza.

The party was rocking, plenty of food, great music, and lots of *refreshments* Lol.

What was crazy is, this is the first BBQ I’ve ever been too that had a bouncer and a guest list at the front door. If you wasn’t on the list, it was a WRAP.
