A group of C-list rappers and R&B will help end obesity, according to Michelle Obama.

The first lady is co-producing a hip hop album featuring a plethora of musicians that you have probably never heard of as part of her “Let’s Move” anti-obesity campaign, AllHipHop News reports.

White House assistant chef Sam Kass said, “So many kids listen to Hip Hop so why not give these messages to kids in a way that’s not preachy. I think hip hop in particular — so many kids love hip hop. It’s such a core part of our culture. Particularly in the African- American community and the Latino community which is being disproportionately affected by those health issues.”

“Songs For a Healthier America” will feature songs titled “U R What You Eat,” “Let’s Move” and “We Like Vegetables” from artists such as former “American Idol” Jordin Sparks, DMC, Ashanti and literally not one other famous person.

According to the song list, Dr. Oz also makes an appearance on the album and if he raps, God help us all.

The album is out Sept. 30, and is sure to be the “Blurred Lines” of the latter half of 2013.
