As you may know, one of Styles P’s many hustles is that he owns a juice bar in the Bronx, Juices For Life. Well, yesterday he – alongside Jadakiss – went back to their old stomping grounds in Yonkers, NY, on 211 Nepperhan Ave (a little bit away from the Whitney Young projects, where D-Block started). Joined by the Mayor of Yonkers Mike Spano, they cut they cut the celebratory ribbon on the new bar.
Jason “Jadakiss” Phillips said one of the reasons he chose to put the bar at the intersection is to hopefully bring some of the violence to an end.
“We want to bring unity to the youth who are engaging in all of this nonsense,” he said. “Here, you pretty much know everybody. As I said before, love is love is our slogan. We don’t tolerate no violence. We’re going to try to settle them down, give them a juice, and help them rectify whatever differences they’re going through, because violence and juice don’t go together.”
David “Styles P,” Styles said a healthy community begins with healthy lifestyles and children.
“It takes a village, they say, to raise a kid. So, it’s up to all of us as a community to make sure we do that,” he said.
“We’re from here,” Styles said. “We care about the town, we care about this place. This is the place that made us big.”
