'I Used to Be a Vegan' by Zion I & the Grouch: Vegan Underground Rap, Yo! - Orange County Restaurants and Dining - Stick a Fork In It

'I Used to Be a Vegan' by Zion I & the Grouch: Vegan Underground Rap, Yo! - Orange County Restaurants and Dining - Stick a Fork In It

this song is actually quite unfortunate for so many reasons. for starters, where did the grouch's politics go--the one's he expressed to peta a few years prior to the release of this or his ode to his newborn on the previous zion i & the grouch album ("10 fingers, 10 toes, 10 lbs, 10 oz")? seems that grouch's ethical-eating/vegan experience was rather short-lived. why didn't they have a pro-vegan anthem when they were practicing a plant-based/decolonized diet? to bash a vegan/plant-based/decolonized diet esp. within communities of color is very troubling considering all the dis-ease we're dealing with...to be honest, i'm bored w/this already and would rather refer whoever that might be reading this to check out supanova slom's "purify or die" and "sugar crack" to connect w/something that's way more about food justice.

see this for more context.
