Ice-T & Chubb Rock Launch Men's Health Foundation

Two 1980s and 1990s emcees unite to promote cancer screenings for men.

While Ice-T and Chubb Rock never collaborated as emcees, the two Hip Hop artists are launching a foundation together. According to AllHipHop.com, their Male Awareness Foundation was founded by Ice and Chubb, along with veteran music manager Mickey Bentson, his wife, Toya Bentson and Dr. Annie Ford.

The foundation promotes health through cancer screenings, specifically testicular, colon, pancreatic, oral and other forms of the disease. "A lot of issues can be addressed with early detection. Our mission is to encourage everyone to get screened on a regular basis.” said Male Awareness Foundation Co-Founder Mickey Bentson said to AllHipHop.com.

The Male Awareness Foundation will begin with mobile promotions in New England as well as New Jersey, where Ice-T recently screened his Iceberg Slim: Portrait Of A Pimp documentary at the Montclair Film Festival.

The foundation's website has more information.

Musically, Ice-T is currently wrapping up Manslaughter with his Heavy Metal band, Body Count. It will be the veteran group's fifth album. In 2009, Chubb Rock released Bridging The Gap with Maryland emcee Wordsmith.
