With the release of A Better Tomorrow, the Wu-Tang Clan hopes to forge ahead by channeling the past, so all 10 Wu members are in on what is being considered a “reunion” LP for the iconic rap group. When peta2 asked founding rapper RZA what the album’s title means to him, the answer was simple for the longtime animal advocate: “When you think about a better tomorrow, you think about veganism in the world.”

RZA "I Am Vegan" peta2 PSA

When it comes to eating animals, RZA tells peta2, “I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body.” He goes on to point out that there’s “nothing on this planet that doesn’t want to live.” That certainly holds true for the tens of billions of animals killed for food every year in the United States.

Inspired in part by the KRS-One track “Beef,” RZA subscribes to the mantra that you are what you eat. Before being sent to slaughter, cows are, as RZA says, “stressed, dumbfounded, sick,” and all that stress will eventually be consumed right along with your $0.99 hamburger—not to mention the pus and feces thrown in free of charge.
