Thats the rap from acclaimed hip-hopper Belly, whos teaming up with the Governor General of Canada, Michaelle Jean to help kids on his hometown streets.
Belly whose real name is Ahmad Balshe says people dont know how to reach out to the hoods, but hes working on an initiative to let kids know they have options.
And while the Palestinian-born rapper exposes social strife with his lyrics, which have been banned by some music networks, Belly is as comfortable in the club as he is in Congress.
He admits, Im a news junkie. Im on CNN.com all day. But I also go out and pop bottles and party and have fun.
Dont draw party lines with his music either.
He explains, Im Palestinian, but I dont overuse it. I express it when I need to, but you can also play my songs in the club.
