Health & Wellness – (The practice of wellbeing, self-discovery while living in balance with ourselves and the planet). People in Hip Hop that are a personal mission to achieve and promote holistic health and this personal mission is a lifestyle has taken on many forms, such as plant based eating, organic gardening, fitness, meditation, sobriety, food justice and animal rights activism.
It is the study of the inner voice and the connection to the soul. It is in this silence and introspection that we find our true selves and through this self-discovery it has led many in Hip Hop to share this knowledge with one another. This path leads us to make the connection to all living things, the animals, the forest, the seas and our environment and challenges us to make a change as a society.
