The LOX’s Jadakiss and Styles P are going down the same route as close pals Dame Dash and Cam’ron by teaming up to launch their own joint juice bar in New York. #Juiced
According to reports, Jada and Styles opened their Yonkers juice spot this week.
The rappers Jadakiss and Styles P are cutting the ribbon on their new juice bar in Yonkers on Tuesday. Jadakiss, also known at Jason Philips (left in the photo), and David Styles will be joined by Mayor Mike Spano at Juices For Life, 211 Nepperhan Ave. at 1:30 p.m. Both artists were born and raised in Yonkers and the juice bar is Styles’ second; the first one is on Castle Hill Avenue in the Bronx.

Jada also dished on the motivation behind their new joint venture during the ceremony.
“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.” (Statement)
Last year, Styles spoke to SOHH about his Bronx juice bar and ex-boss Diddy partnering up with water beverage company AQUAhydrate.
“It’s great,” Styles told SOHH when asked for his reaction to Diddy getting behind AQUAhydrate and artists like 50 Cent launching his own Street King energy shot line. “It’s f*cking great. We need it. You need to live right. So it’s great. The juice bar is still going on. … It’s all about balance. Everything needs balance. You can’t do all sh*t that’s wrong for you. You know what I’m saying? The waters and [healthy drinks], I think it’s great for artists to do that. Whatever artists do, regular people are going to do. It’s great to see artists doing something healthy or something that benefits everybody.” (SOHH)
Earlier this week, reports about Dame Dash and Cam’ron linking up for their own joint restaurant surfaced online.
Hip hop mogul Damon Dash — who is best known for co-founding the record label Roc-a-Fella records — and rapper Cam’ron are opening a restaurant in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. According to Instagram photos of the spot posted to Dash’s account, the restaurant will be called Dish and will serve a Mediterranean menu. Attached to the restaurant will be a lounge called Dash.
