Hip Hop icon, Snoop Dogg, is using his considerable influence and voice to reach out to today's youth. The Doggfather has tossed his player hat in the ring with noted rappers and disability activists, 4 Wheel City, to drop a strong, message-laden song aimed at keeping kids off of the street and into the classroom. "This is not just a record it's a movement. It's a feeling! I'm down with the movement, we are about doing something righteous."- Snoop Dogg

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 10, 2010 -- Rap legend, Snoop Dogg has endorsed 4 Wheel City's, "Welcome to Reality" tour, a unique brand of musical therapy that awakens young people to the realities of the street life and its subsequent consequences. 4 Wheel City founders, Namel "Tapwaterz" Norris and Ricardo "Ricfire" Velasquez, use music as an outlet to educate their communities. Performing at high schools, colleges and hospitals all over the United States, the duo entertain and inspire their fans with Hip Hop, compelling kids to stay in school and raising awareness of people with disabilities. "We are excited to team up with Snoop Dogg.", says Tapwaterz, "He is the perfect artist for this project. Kids love Snoop and he has the street credibility they will listen to." http://www.reverbnation.com/store/store_for_song/3966008


The "Welcome to Reality G-mix" features Snoop's laid back flow with Tapwaterz, in your face, East Coast lyricism over a horn heavy, rugged, West Coast beat. 4 Wheel City will debut the song on May 15 at the Canadian Association for Musical Therapy, where the group is scheduled to be the keynote speaker/performer. The song is available for download at ReverbNation and proceeds will be used to produce a public service announcement/music video to present to teens all over the world.
