Hip Hop has rapped about every food from chicken to beef, but many of your favorite rappers have given up the sausage. (Pause)
Although some people opt out of animal products altogether, there are several types of vegetarians—vegan, raw vegan, pescatarian, macrobiotic, and flexitarian/semi-vegetarian, lacto-ovo vegetarian.
A vegetarian is a person who does not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal flesh of any kind and sometimes other animal products, esp. for moral, religious, or health reasons.
Everyone from Redman and Method Man, to Mos Def, Dead Prez, Sage Francis, staHHr, Andre 3000, KRS-One, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, Gza, Rza, Nelly, Q-Tip and even Ja-Rule have given up meat for a healthier lifestyle.
Here’s a classic Dead Prez song called ‘Be Healthy’ from their mix tape ‘Turn Off The Radio”.
