Emcee Lupe Fiasco , along with Justin Timberlake and Ethiopian-born Pop singer Kenna will climb Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness about the global water crisis.

"My dad almost died as a child from waterborne diseases in Ethiopia, and he had talked to me about digging a well there, and I thought, ‘I have too many friends who would be concerned with the subject of clean water. Maybe I can help out," Kenna told Elle magazine.

If the three artists make it to the summit they will have climbed Africa’s highest peak. The mountain, which is located in Tanzania, is nearly 20,000 feet high.

"I’m an adventure junkie,” explained Lupe Fiasco. “Part of the motivation is beating Kenna to the top. Sabotaging his tent, taking the lining out of his coat, lacing it with ants or something like that."

The lengthy climb is expected to take place some time during fall later this year.

In similar news, Lupe Fiasco announced last month that he would be releasing his third studio album entitled Lasers later this year.
