Rapper Styles P is now in the health and wellness industry with over 20 projects under his belt, including solo projects, collaborations, and features. As the rapper transitions into retirement, his plan includes reinventing himself as an entrepreneur. 

Fans learned he was retiring as a solo emcee when he released his latest album, Penultimate: A Calm Wolf Is Still a Wolf, last year. He is planning two more albums before he brings his music career to an end, Forbes noted.

“I’m retiring as a soloist. These will be my last few albums. It’s going to be like three albums in one, but I will still be involved in collaborative efforts and working with the group,” Styles said.

“I’ve outworked most of my peer group. I feel like it’s my time to transition from being a solo artist, focus on group projects and collaborations, and then concentrate more on the health field and my interests in film.”

Last month, Styles relaunched his juice bar in a bid to project himself as a leading figure in the health and wellness industry. He revamped his Juices for Life venture under the brand name Juice 2 Heal.

The relaunch was welcomed in White Plains on June 29, with support from White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, and Jadakiss, also a co-owner of the juice bar, according to Forbes.

The rapper-turned-entrepreneur said the main reason behind the relaunch of his Juices for Life brand was that he wanted people to be clear about its objectives and that of his other brand, Farmacy For Life. He added that the name “Juices for Life” had also been used too many times by several businesses across the state.

“Where we’re going with the brand now is we’re getting into press juices, shipping juices to people, weekly juice cleanses, and more merch,” said Styles. “We wanted to switch so we wouldn’t have any issues with other brands… We support all brands and are glad for anyone who sells juice or health products to make money.”

“For years, we considered buying the name, but instead, we decided to rebrand and create a whole new name. We switched to Juice 2 Heal. With that, we’ll be offering press juices, weekly cleanses, more merch, more events, and healing aspects of what our brand does.”

Styles first launched Farmacy For Life with his wife, Adjua Styles, as a hip-hop-themed natural health food store in America in 2018. On its website, Farmacy For Life says it is “Hip Hop’s First Health Food Store.” The store features premier wellness products, including black seed oil, oil of oregano, sea moss, soursop, elderberry, and zinc.

He is also behind Farma Cares, a nonprofit organization that provides communities with better nutritional alternatives. As a tech supporter, Styles also owns Farmacy Fantoms, a health-focused Web 3.0 community that integrates wellness with blockchain technology, NFTs, and other decentralized digital tools. Through the Farmacy Fantoms Web3 community, users are offered ownership and utility from advanced technologies, Forbes said.
