Salute family! This is a special message from your comrade Khnum “stic” Ibomu of dead prez and founder of the RBG FIT CLUB. We are so excited for the rapid growth and the developments of this community movement so far. Amazingly, in just a few months since the release of my album The Workout we have touched hundreds of thousands of lives and have witnessed countless health and fitness transformational testimonies from around the globe, inspired by The Workout and The RBG FIT CLUB Movement. I’d like to personally thank Chris “Knotti” Green of FITISM.COM for coming on board as our Web Development Administrator. He has been putting in grade A work on the new site and for the development of our Movement and i look forward to building with this talented, like minded comrade as things progress. We are seeing a tremendous amount of support for our ongoing campaign to “raise the bar”. But of course there is so much more work to do.
RBG FIT CLUB recognizes the urgency in our communities in general to revolutionize our priorities as it relates to health. Hip Hop and the Entertainment Industry, in particular, has been really hit hard from health issues and deaths. We lost Big Pun due obesity complications. Heavy D‘s recent sudden death was a big shock and sad day in Hip Hop. And a long list of others…
- Guru from Gangstarr (cancer),
- Pimp C (death from codeine “Syrup” overdose complications),
- Easy E (AIDS complications),
- ODB (overdose),
- JDilla (lupus),
- Rick James (drug overdose),
- Gerald Levert (heart attack),
- Michael Jackson (drug addiction and overdose)…and many close calls as well
- Phife Dawg (kidney failure),Rick Ross (seizures), Erick Sermon (heart attack)…
It is beyond obvious the epidemic state of poor health that our communities are in; and as we can clearly see celebrities are no exception. In addition, with the epidemic abuse of weed, syrup sippin’, alcohol, ecstasy, dust, meth and cocaine in hip hop and popular culture today it is urgent that a healthy movement such as the RBG FIT CLUB exists . Don’t you agree?
RBG FIT CLUB‘s mission is to be not only a positive example of healthy living; but a practical example as well. A movement that is authentically centered in hip hop culture is what can impact our culture toward a more healthy direction. RBG FIT CLUB promotes the value of fitness, nutrition, sobriety, meditation, alternative healing, social justice around health issues and such things because we’re not just talking about it or just reading about it or just rapping about it or just complaining about it…we are living it!
We know through our collective example we can shift the popular emphasis away from self-degeneration, sickness, disease and death towards preventative healthy lifestyle choices. Our existence as a movement is a powerful tool in building better health in our culture and in our communities. And with the cost of conventional health care these days, and it’s increasing ineffectiveness; prevention is our best bet.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
RBG FIT CLUB is happy to be at the forefront of this movement innovating and leading the way to help break the cycle! We know it takes lots of consistent motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle and thats exactly what we are here for!
We invite YOU to join ranks with us (it’s free!), dedicate your self to health, fitness and wellness for the benefit of yourself, your family and areas of influence. We invite you to be a part of the Solution!
Help us spread the word on the 5 principles of the RBG FIT CLUB which are: KNOWLEDGE, NUTRITION, EXERCISE, REST and CONSISTENCY. Support and promote The Workout album and proudly wear the RBG FIT CLUB branded merch so more people can be made aware of what we are doing and be inspired and encouraged to join in as well.
