Rap legend Lisa Lisa will be performing tomorrow during the Freestyle Palooza located at Count Basie Theater in Redbank, New Jersey to raise awareness about breast cancer through a freestyle performance and sharing her story about her own battle with breast cancer.

The event is being sponsored by the “Mama Luke/Hip-Hop Fights Breast Cancer” and the American Cancer Society.  The “Mama Luke/Hip-Hop Fights Breast Cancer” was founded by Kangol Kid of the rap group, UTFO, and his friend/business manager, Shaunda Lampkin.  The movement was named in honor of Lampkin’s mother, who lost her three-year battle to breast cancer in 2010.

This movement has been supported by other celebrities such as LL Cool J, Will Smith, and Ice-T in an effort to bring awareness and raise funds to support these worthy cause.

This will be the first time that Lisa Lisa addresses her battle with breast cancer publicly.
