Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Proclaims, ‘A Vegan Tomorrow Is a Better Tomorrow’

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (8)

In two weeks, world-famous hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan will release A Better Tomorrow, its first album in seven years. But before this long-anticipated album hits the stores, group leader RZA – whom you may also know as Apocalypse Samurai on Californication – will appear in a brand-new PETA ad declaring, “A better tomorrow is a vegan tomorrow. I am RZA, and I am vegan”.

“I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body”, RZA says. “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.”

RZA also talks about the influence of hip-hop icons Russell Simmons, who promotes veganism, and KRS-One, who in his song “Beef” gave “us an idea of the process that animals go through … to make it to our tables”, RZA says.

Animals value their lives just as much as humans do. Yet those lives are sacrificed for profit, and human health and the environment are damaged because of it. RZA makes the point that we shouldn’t be putting the product of such stress and death into our living bodies.

It’s never too late to make the kind, smart choice and adopt a plant-based diet, giving your health a boost and sparing animals unnecessary suffering. Order your free vegan starter kit today.

    You all wear leather boots, seen a lot of jackets in my time too, so this is just odd!

      There are lots of alternative such as faux leather, also the transition from animal consumer to vegan is an absolute mind field because animal products are an ingredient in almost everything we eat use & ware so its one step at a time reducing the animal products in your life when when you have lived as an “comfortably unaware” consumer. Thank you Dr Opendlander !
      Why is it that shoes and jackets are the first attack on veggies & vegans, Seems education is keys to living life with consciousness.

      I’m wearing Vegan doc’s at the moment. Vegan’s don’t wear leather, fur or anything that comes from an animal. That’s what a vegan is. If you see them wearing leather you are probably seeing them wear faux which looks just like leather. Even more reason to stop eating meat. We don’t need the skin for fashion.

    I agree with Andrea. I’ve been a veggie for about 27 years and the difference in becoming a vegan is huge. I’m doing it a bit at a time. All my face products are now vegan / none tested on animals. Started buying none leather shoes / bags, never wore leather coat or gloves etc anyway and on soya milk and don’t buy cheese – but this is the hardest bit to give up, but not impossible.

    I think RZA brilliant for speaking out about it!

    Good luck to anyone giving it a go.
