Nashville taste maker Chancellor Warhol is forging his own path as a fashion forward designer and up-and-coming hip hop artist. Channeling inspiration from a diverse list of artists, including Daft Punk, The Black Keys, and Pharrell, Warhol quickly caught the eye of industry insiders, by opening for fellow “next big thing” artists Yelawolf and Kid Cudi, and winning over crowds at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits.

After hearing Warhol spouting about his “vegan habits” on his current single, “I’m On,” featuring fellow Nashville artist Drupy, we had to dig around for further intel. Turns out Warhol initially adopted a vegetarian diet for the irrefutable health benefits, and stuck with it upon learning the truth about the horrors of factory farming.

Saying of his diet, “When I first dove into it I was thinking more health than the concept of harming animals, but after a while I became more conscious of other beings and realized I did not want to consume animals. I also watched Food, Inc. and Earthlings, which changed my mindset completely.” Since becoming vegetarian, Warhol says, “It’s been great for my health. My energy is increased which is great for my lifestyle as a musician and fashion designer.” Some of Warhol’s fave dishes include vegan pizza, and of his blossoming cooking skills, he told peta2, “I recently bought a vegan cookbook and look to try some new recipes as soon as I can.” If he’s lacking inspiration, I’m sure we can send a few ideas his way. 😉
