With the Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow album on its way, RZA appears in new PETA ad campaign, where he talks about living life as a vegan — “A Better Tomorrow Is a Vegan Tomorrow.”
“I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body,” RZA in an interview with PETA. “I had animals as friends … They was happy to see me in their own animal way. I’m quite sure they did not want to be on my plate.”
Later, the Wu-Tang frontman talks about the influence of hip-hop icons like Russell Simmons and KRS-One, who helped lead the community’s vegan charge with his song “Beef,” which RZA says gave “us an idea of the process that animals go through … to make it to our tables.”
