Update: Gotcha! Ingrid Newkirk will not be releasing Yo! PETA Raps,  but we couldn’t resist the opportunity to have some fun on April Fool’s and bring attention to the many hip-hop stars who are speaking up for animals. Hopefully our little joke will inspire some actual artists to think about animal rights the next time they hit the studio.

Here at peta2, we’re pretty in tune with the latest and greatest buzzmakers in the music scene. This one, however, definitely caught me by surprise. Plenty of bands, from The Smiths to Strike Anywhere, have written songs about animal rights. Couple that with the growing number of hip-hop players speaking up for animals—including J FieldsRussell Simmons, and Pac Div, just to name a few—and it only makes sense that PETA would have a hand in releasing an animal rights–themed album from a hot new MC, right?

Well, here it is, folks. The mastermind behind it all, PETA head honcho Ingrid E. Newkirk, is working on a rap album with hopes to “better reach today’s youth culture with the message that it’s fly to keep animals in your heart and mind.” These are some of the tracks that will be featured on Yo! PETA Raps, due out in early summer:

 

  • “A Rat Is a Pig Is a Dog Is My Boi”
  • “Kale Smoothie Killas”
  • “It’s All About the Bok Choy”
  • “Ur My Dawg, Dog”
  • “I’m Hatin’ It (McCruelty)”
  • “Pug Life”
  • “Vegan’s Paradise”
  • “BWVAKTBOOM (Make ‘Em Say Uhh)”

You heard it here first! Personally, I’m hoping for guest vocals from peta2 pals Waka Flocka Flame or Travie McCoy. Who do you want to hear on the mic with Ingrid?
