Rap Artists Master P, Lil' Romeo to Promote Michelle Obama Anti-Obesity Initiative

Rap music mogul Master P and his son Lil' Romeo are teaming up to host an event to honor the late singer Tina Marie, and to draw attention to health issues including "Let's Move!," Michelle Obama's childhood anti-obesity campaign.

Coinciding with the 2011 Grammy awards, the event will take place in Los Angeles on February 11th. Organizers hope to recruit other musicians and singers to join the father and son pair in promoting the first lady's child health initiative.

In a statement to the music website AllHipHop.com, Master P said, "We are taking the initiative to help fight childhood obesity by educating the next generation on how to eat right and exercise through music, dance and entertainment."

First Lady Michelle Obama launched the "Let's Move!" campaign in February. The initiative seeks to end childhood obesity by encouraging children to eat well and exercise.
