Michelle Obama is known for her politics. Iman Shumpert is known for his basketball skills. So of course they're teaming up to make a hip-hop album.

The First Lady is partnering with Partnership For A Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health to produe the 19-track album (and 10 music videos). It is part of Obama's Let's Move campaign against childhood obesity.
Among the artists taking part in the album are "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks, Doug E.Fresh, Run D.M.C. and Ashanti. Shumpert, the Knicks swingman, is teaming with Artie Green on the track "Pass the Rock," which, according to XXL, is the 11th track.
