“Workout 357” by Legendary Dance/Rap group Oaktowns 357 sets the Fitness Industry on fire with the new Hip Hop Healthy Workout

With so much death and illness attacking the HipHop and Urban community, Sweet LD and Lil P of Oaktowns 357, felt the need to share their healthy eating and fun workout routine with the world.


Forth Worth, Texas- Starting their career as the main dancers for MC Hammer and eventually having a successful solo career as Oaktown’s 3.5.7., Sweet L.D. and Lil’ P are no strangers to fitness. Their high-energy dance routines are part of what made them popular in the early 90’s and it was still keeps them healthy and happy.

Interviewed by in March for Women’s History Month, Oaktown’s 3.5.7 stated that they were working on a fitness program and they kept their word. Workout 357 is a high energy dance/fitness program that combines world beats with urban flavor and takes Oaktown’s 3.5.7. fans on a proverbial trip around the world, while helping teens and adults enjoy being fit. The Hip Hop Healthy way.

The ladies, who were already in talks about bringing out an enjoyable, hiphop based, daily workout felt that the passing of legendary rapper “Heavy D”, who once was under the same management as the group, really served as motivation to do so…. Another big motivation for the project was Sweet L.D’s loss of her brother at an early age to Diabetes and the fact that she herself suffers from High Blood Pressure… In conjunction, these things ultimately led to the decision that it was not only important, but also necessary to add a healthy component to the project.

It has been widely complained about that the entertainment industry doesn’t offer a Healthcare Package and judging from the financial loses in the industry from 2010 to 2012; it doesn’t seem like we are about to see any benefits within the near future. For entertainers constant shows, appearances, parties, drinking and balancing life with work, cause the body to gradually to shut down. “Healthy life or Die” begins to be the campaign.

The full project “Workout 357” consists of healthy eating tips, a full workout from Warm Up to Cool Down and discussions with Doctors, nutritionists, as well as, testimonies and struggles. “Our audience will have a chance to learn the workout through our bi weekly blogs on the Oaktowns 357 site.” says Sweet L.D. Oaktowns 357 will also travel to various health and fitness centers for live demos of the Workout and to conduct healthy living workshops at healthcare facilities nationally.

The ladies of Oaktowns 357 have recently sat down with “Sister 2 Sister” Magazine, “HipHop Weekly”, “” and other prominent magazines to discuss this upcoming project and to let everyone know that Oaktowns 357 is back. The “Workout 357” trailer is currently online and can be seen at

The trailer features the new single “Get Up On It” from Oaktowns 357 and “It is the perfect song to get the body in workout mode.” says Lil P of Oaktowns 357. “We want people to have fun and just enjoy living. Taking your life back one step at a time.”

Press Rlease: Contemporary Gospel Rap Artist “Goon 2 Saint” Makes A Bold Musical Statement With New Video, Savior Feat. Pope Andre

Contemporary Gospel Rap Artist “Goon 2 Saint” Makes A Bold Musical Statement With New Video, Savior Feat. Pope Andre

RICHMAND, VI, April 8th, 2012 — Contemporary Gospel Rap’s newest breakout artist Goon 2 Saint aka G2S, is making his independent debut with the new video for his single “Savoir” ft. R&B sensation “Pope Andre”.  Both artist currently live in the Virginia area and have a great testimony of what God has done for them. The video received over 1000 views the first week of post on which was very exciting for this young artist.

G2S is a man on a mission. Tyrone Richardson a.k.a. G2S, is definitely one of God’s chosen vessels. G2S (Goon 2 Saint) was born July 18, 1983 in Harlem, New York but spent most of his childhood between Richmond, VA and Bronx, NY. He began to get into trouble at an early age which led to him selling drugs while in the 7th grade and even joining a gang. G2S had found himself arrested numerous times for things such as gun possession, assault and disorderly conduct. While incarcerated, he was introduced to the word of God. He began studying the Bible and attending church and even gave his life over to God while incarcerated.

Since then G2S has become the protégé of popular gospel singer Pope Andre and has made it his goal in life to proclaim his love for God through the vehicle of music. The Richmond, VA and Bronx, NY area native and rapper is prepping the release of his contemporary gospel rap single debut entitled “Savior Feat. Pope Andre”. Flowing easily from mellow tunes to urban-tinged tracks; G2S provides a strong dose of inspiration from the struggles and troubles of the street to Gods amazing grace.

G2S wants to leave listeners of “Savior Feat. Pope Andre” with one message: Repent. “I want people who listen to my project to learn it’s never too late to ask for forgiveness. I want people to know that God Answers Pray; don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

G2S stands on the word and lives by Isaiah 54:17, which reads, No weapon formed against me shall prosper: and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me, saint the Lord.
