Zion I & The Grouch - I Used to Be Vegan
"we think it's wrong to hurt animals and raise animals just to slaughter them and kill them because animals feel pain just like humans do. being cruel to an animal is like being cruel...to yourself, i mean to a human, it's alive...its something thats alive and it feels pain and it has feelings, and it thinks...its wrong for humans to take advantage of the fact that they can physically, you know, control animals. ~ the grouch
i had the opportunity to interview both the grouch and zumbi of zion i at their in-store show at music millennium in portland, oregon:
the grouch & mc zumbi of zion i speak to why they created "i used to be vegan" at music millennium in portland, oregon. before turning the camera on them, i told them that i'm vegan, i had seen the peta video interview, and that i represent the vegan hip hop movement. to be perfectly honest, i was ill prepared for this exchange and considering that there was a line of 20 or so people behind me it wasn't the place for a debate so i simply asked them to elaborate on "i used to be vegan."
