Dr. Oz and Dr. Olajide Williams receive rap lessons from Doug E. Fresh.
Dr. Oz just scored a couple more cool points.
The physician and television show host displays his knack for rapping on Jordin Spark’s new song “Everybody,” an ode to getting healthy.
In the song that promotes watching what you eat and exercising, Mehmet Oz offers a fun rap verse and hip hop moves.
At the 2:24 mark in the video, Dr. Oz and Dr. Olajide Williams, who is also known as The Hip Hop Doc, make their introduction, launching into their old school rap styled duet.
Dr. Oz surprises with impressive timing and humor, rhyming, “Just the other day, they seen me on the show. Didn’t know I had style, didn’t know I had flow, fa sho.”
While bobbing to the beat, doing the Dougie dance, and incorporating gestures like kicking his leg when referencing “kick” in a lyric, Dr. Oz comes off as a natural.
He adds, “Had to come together on this track, kick a little facts” and “Gotta watch your calories, what you’re taking in.”
First lady Michelle Obama lends her support, making a cameo appearance in the music video and referencing 2011’s Let’s Move campaign that included a remix of Beyoncé’s “Get Me Bodied” video.
In a behind-the-scenes video, hip hop pioneer Doug E. Fresh coaches the doctor on his rhyme flow and stage presence.
“Everybody” appears on the album, "Songs for A Healthier America." The 19-song project includes Travis Barker on “U R What You Eat,” Doug E. Fresh on “Everybody” and “Let’s Move,” Ashanti on “Just Believe” and Monifah on “Veggie Luv.”
The set was produced by Hip Hop Public Health and the Partnership for a Healthier America.
