By now, I'm sure your News Feed has been flooded with images of little kids' lifeless bodies lying on the shores, just as mine has. Some people may be a little confused as to where those images come from and why they are making their rounds on social media.

For years now, Styles P and Jadakiss have been one of rap music's best one-two combination. So it only seems right the duo take that teamwork outside of the studio into the streets. For the last couple of years, Yonkers own Styles P has been promoting the juice bars they've opened up in New York. Well, now those juice bars are getting national exposure, as Styles and Jada attempt to help give lower income neighborhoods healthier options.
Of all the artists we've featured on The Urban Advocate over the years, Colby Savage is one of the brightest stars. Colby Savage is an East Texas rep who has held it down on the Dallas scene for years now.
