    Eat your vegetables -- and listen to the first lady's jams.

    First lady Michelle Obama is getting some help from big names in hip-hop to motivate kids into healthy eating.

    Her anti-obesity program "Let's Move!" will reportedly launch a 19-song album in September featuring Jordin Sparks, Ashanti and Run DMC singing and rapping about eating vegetables and staying positive. Even Dr. Oz got in on the action with a cameo appearance in the video for the first single "Everybody." He rapped about exercise with a little help from Doug E. Fresh.

    Ten music videos released with the album will be distributed to New York City Schools before hitting other major cities, Politico reported.

    The album was a collaborative effort between Let's Move and Partnership for a Healthier America.
