The Brown Rice and Broccoli project was produced by Dj Cavem with his 2013 Summer Camp (9 weeks). The students studied sustainability, organic gardening, holistic health, and plant based nutrition. The music video was the final project where a few students were selected to write their verse and emcee. The concept of the song was a direct healthy response to the “Hot Cheetos and Takis” song by Y.N. Rich Kids. The students were interacted to study the ingredients in Hot Cheetos and Takis and their harmful side effects, and then write their versus. Dj Cavem wrote the hook.
