Chilli of TLC joins forces with fitness empire to boost girls'
self-esteem and body image
(Atlanta, GA) 5-time Grammy Award winning singer/dancer/actor Chilli better known as one third of super girl group TLC and her foundation "Chilli's Crew" is hosting its 2nd annual summer camp for teen girls August 1-4, 2013. The 4-day/ 3-night camp will take place in the founder's hometown of Atlanta, GA.
Chilli has partnered her foundation with celebrity and community mentors to conduct workshops and fun activities to enhance the teen girls' self-esteem and body image. The 2nd annual Chilli's Crew summer camp will feature many special guests, to share and reflect upon their expertise and experiences in their respected industries, which will be used as a source of encouragement for the young ladies.
Health and fitness pioneer, Beachbody.com is sponsoring the event and supporting Chilli's objective of teaching the girls proper nutrition and exercise in order for them to lead healthy lifestyles.
The lucky participants can expect to learn about healthy body image and self- esteem plus beauty, fashion, entertainment and more.
"I'm very excited about this year's Chilli's Crew Camp," says Chilli. "I can't wait chillito see some of my girls from last year and meet new ones. We had soooo much fun last year and this year is going to be even bigger! I want the girls to have fun and learn the importance of loving themselves from the inside out."
2012 marked the first year of what will now be an annual event for Chilli's Crew. The 3-day camp was a huge success that drew girls from all different walks of life. Mentors including legendary hip-hop artist MC Lyte and celebrity OB/GYN Dr. Tosha Rogers, conducted workshops on the ups and downs of the entertainment industry, becoming successful businesswomen and nurturing and caring for their developing bodies.
"Beachbody's Core Purpose is to help people achieve their goals and lead healthy fulfilling lives, so Chilli's event is a natural for us to sponsor and support," says Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody. "And since I have a 13 year-old daughter, I totally understand the importance of educating young women at this age so they grow up with self confidence and a healthy body image."

Rain, Hail or Snow did not stop J. Cole's NYC fans from standing in line outside J&R Music store to cop his Sophomore album, 'Born Sinner'. Looks like the North Carolina native is gearing up to move a considerable amount of units, despite what the critics are saying.
Andre "Add-2" Daniels is not someone who wants to be viewed as your stereotypical rapper. He is a family man first. Also, he works to be a responsible human being. Those values are emulated through the music he constructs. Not one to take any responsibility lightly, I catch up with him to ask him a classic "21 Questions" to see where his head is at.
I bring you into the mind of Add-2!
1.) How does it feel to have so many fans amongst rap peers that you are either coming up with (ANTHM) or people you actually look up to (9th Wonder, Common, etc.)?
It's humbling because, as emcees, we take a lot of pride in our craft. So to give someone else acknowledgement on theirs shows a lot of character. I have so much respect for other emcees who study the craft like ANTHM, Kendrick and, of course, the legends like Common, Nas and 9th Wonder. So to get the respect back is something I don't take for granted.
2.) Between the release of Save.Our.Souls and More Missed Calls, can you tell me anything that has changed about your life, your career, and your mind set?
Between that time I was dealing with the loss of one of my closest uncles , was just stepping into this role of primary caretaker for my grandmother and one of my best friends was still in prison. During that time I felt like I was slowly going into a depression because I wasn't where I wanted to be. It brought out this sense of urgency which is why you may hear more of an aggressive tone or I may go harder on a verse because this is my way of venting. I felt like I cried as much as I could so now I have to get THROUGH it. Not over it but get through it. That's why I want to get the respect I feel I deserve.
3.) Since Chicago is gaining more steam due to the growth of certain movements and artists (from Chief Keef and 3-Hunna all the way to more abstract emcees like Change The Rapper), tell me your honest feelings on it all. Likes, dislikes, and lack of concern for it can be addressed. Just tell me: how do you feel about it all?
I love it. I love that Chicago is growing and showing how much of a gumbo pot of talent we truly are. A lot of people want me to speak out against Keef or would want me to be jealous of another person's success, but I'm not at all. I want the younger artists to be successful because that's creating more outlets for more people and showing kids that you can do anything. That's important to me because I know what some of these kids could be doing. Instead of rapping or in the studio they could be on the block smoking weed all day, posted, robbing people or in jail. Would I want more artists to speak out on whats going on for real? YES. But I'm not going to wait fo
