Michelle Obama will release a music album that will include Iman ShumpertPosted by Inside Hoops
Michelle Obama will release a hip-hop-inspired album. Although she probably won’t rhyme or sing on any songs, it will be the first time that a first lady has delved into hip-hop for a greater cause.
The album will promote Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign in an effort to fight childhood obesity. Obama enlisted DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Ashanti, Monifah and other artists to create songs on the 19-track album.
The project, sponsored by Partnership For A Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health, will seek to raise awareness through entertainment.
Track no. 11: “Pass the Rock” f/ Iman Shumpert and Artie Green

Ten music videos released with the album are set to be distributed to schools in New York City before being circulated to other major cities.
