Def Jam Recordings artist Jadakiss – the New York hip-hop icon whose career spans two decades and millions of albums sold – takes it back to the community this week, as he teams up with Slice Out Hunger and Slice’s “Pizza Vs Pandemic” campaign, to deliver pizza to New York and Los Angeles-area hospitals. The ongoing campaign supports both small businesses and healthcare workers by purchasing pizza for frontline workers fighting COVID-19.
As a native of Yonkers, NY, Jadakiss is sustaining his hometown community by sponsoring a massive delivery of his favorite food to heroes on the front lines, in this case, hospitals in the New York and Los Angeles-area.
“In this time of tragedy and confusion in the world, I would like to say thank you to the Healthcare Workers on the frontline in both New York and Los Angeles for all their efforts to help those suffering from Covid-19. I am partnering with @sliceoutthehunger, @slice & @deliciouspizzahq to deliver boxes of pizza to hospitals on 5/15/20.”
Since the nation-wide “Pizza Vs Pandemic” campaign was first launched by Slice Out Hunger and Slice in March, it has raised over $400k to fund its pizza deliveries. The nonprofit is 100% volunteer-run, so every dollar they receive directly impacts the communities they serve. Fans can go to Jada’s direct donation page at https://sliceouthunger.org/allcrust
As an added bonus, the donations funded by Jadakiss and his fans will be delivered in limited edition pizza boxes featuring the artist’s “All Crust” mantra. The box design is of particular interest to Slice Out Hunger’s founder Scott Wiener, who holds a Guinness World Record for his collection of over 1,500 unique pizza boxes from around the world. All of the boxes will also have a QR code linked here: https://Stream.lnk.to/AllCrustPizzaFP
“We will provide pizzas for Covid only departments, as well as Health clinics and community centers, working directly with underserved communities across Los Angeles.”
On March 6th, Jadakiss dropped his fifth studio album IGNATIUS, whose tracks include “ME,” “Kisses To the Sky” featuring Rick Ross and Emanny, and the brand new single “Huntin Season” featuring Pusha T. The album is named for Jada’s dear friend, Ignatius ‘Ice Pick Jay’ Jackson, who passed away in 2017, due to Colon Cancer. Jadakiss is an active supporter of the City Of Hope Colon Cancer treatment & research hospital based in Los Angeles.
