You don't have to be a legendary rapper in order to help your community, but it certainly helps
Jadakiss and Styles P are bonafide hip-hop heavyweights whose careers have spanned three decades, but their legacies may be solidified by something other than their music.

These neighborhoods are often referred to as "food deserts," since access to nutritional food is virtually nonexistent. In this America Tonight excerpt, Sarah Hoye meets with Jadakiss and Styles P, who are leading by example and looking to help put an end to food deserts.
