The latest celebrity enlisted to get folks covered once wasn’t the biggest fan of covering up herself. Rapper and expectant mom Lil’ Kim, who famously arrived at the 1999 VMAs wearing a revealing purple onesie, will participate in the “#GetCovered” tour in New York on Friday to help get the uninsured signed up for the Affordable Care Act before the March 31 deadline.

According to the official news release, the day-long tour will have stops in Brooklyn, Harlem and the Bronx, making a final stop at the Katra Lounge where “attendees will have the opportunity to enroll in the Affordable Care Act on-site.” Talk about partying with a purpose.
