As RZA prepares for the Wu-Tang Clan release of A Better Tomorrow, the MC/producer sat down with PETA to discuss his lifestyle. “When you think about a better tomorrow, you think about veganism in the world,” he says in the PETA ad. “I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body… I had animals as friends. They was happy to see me in they own animal way. I’m pretty sure they did not want to be on my plate.”
Of course, RZA isn’t the first rapper to discuss the benefits of a meat-less diet and he knows it. “I think hip-hop is becoming more conscious about their diets,” he says. “I think some of it started back with KRS-One having a song called ‘Beef’ and giving us the idea of the process that animals go through to make it to our tables.” Other rappers, including Waka Flocka Flame, have also been involved with PETA in the past. Watch the PETA clip below, but be advised, there are some graphic images in the clip.
