Kevin Tillman of The Vegan Hip Hop Movement interview with Animal Voices Radio (7/29/08)


The Vegan Hip Hop Movement

Listen in as we connect with Kevin Tillman, founder of the Vegan Hip Hop Movement website and promoter of all things people, animal, and earth-friendly. In this interview, Kevin takes us back to the roots of hip hop, and offers us insight into its message of empowerment that arose within the South Bronx and continues to inspire communities internationally. Indivisible from that resistant history, the world of vegan hip hop raises its voice for humans and nonhumans alike.
Engaging issues related to consumerism, colonialism, racism, animal exploitation, among others, the vegan hip hop movement cultivates a holistic anti-oppression approach that pushes veganism and animal rights to go further, while also urging hip hop to broaden its scope. Tune in to hear some fine tracks from vegan hip hop artists, and tap into a movement that shakes it all up.
Thanks to LabtekwonFarm Fresh, and Hush Money for giving us the green light to include their music in the podcast. We’re still hoping to hear back from Loer Velocity, Ruffmic and Freedom Writer. Thanks also to Kevin for selecting the music, and helping us to meet our Canadian content requirements!

A Complete Guide to 'Hipster Racism'

A Complete Guide to 'Hipster Racism'

"It's the gentler, more clueless, and more insidious cousin of a hick in a hood; the domain of educated, middle-class white people (like me—to be clear, I am one of those) who believe that not wanting to be racist makes it okay for them to be totally racist. "But I went to college — I can't be racist!" Turns out, you can."

Menção Honrosa - TEASER OFFICIAL

Menção Honrosa RBG - Pra Viver (with lyrics)


To live and be alive! (Menção Honrosa)

The warrior's heart always aims to get stronger
confident, like the one that counts with no luck
Strengthen and renewed, full of positive energy, that proposes, and gets contagious

If I'm what I eat, then I'm vitality 
On my plate there's no death or cruelty,
Besides, I take personal care of my own business
With a healthy body and mind, and our spirit getting stronger

I wake early everyday, feels like I'm always rested
Just a pray and a vegan food and I'm ready 
To train, to work out and to live
That's revolution, and that's how it will be. 

Natural and freed, I walk out of step 
Always alert I can not be fooled.
I get focused, any way, I know they'll try in vain to confuse me
I'm a warrior, I'm a threat, I read a lot and I'll speak out!

Just like P.Luo says, That's it, I'm a living menace
"Cause I represent equality with my mind... or with my arm"

To run, to train, to work out and live
To smile and sweat, to never quit trying at any cost
To feel it, change it, deserve it, and earn the right of it
To build, a line, to fight, and deserve winning!

Eat that junky food to get ill again
They want you at the hospital so they can enrich more 
They wanna see you thirsty and dull 
After all, medicine is not about health but profit

If your body is not ok, your mind doesn't work well
And that's this planet suffers from this linsane humanity 
Get up from this bed, come on, wake from the coma!
Wake up from this bad dream, rise up and walk free

Get on your feet, this is step one
Listen, you're a miracle, not a failure 
"H ponto aço" is what you have inside you 
And today is your rebirth day 

Awake the giant that sleeps inside you
Awake it! And get surprised with its power
And if somebody discouraged you, like you were not able to
Prove they were wrong! And prove that you're more, God is more! 

God is great, and lives inside your heart, inside you!
So get this straight and let's begin to expand yourself 
God is great and needs from you a huge space, 
So don't you miss the opportunity and enlarge HIS temple!

To run, to train, to work out and live
To smile and sweat, to never quit trying at any cost
To feel it, change it, deserve it, and earn the right of it
To build, a line, to fight, and deserve winning!

Today I got a training to do, and the warm up has just begun
All day long I get ready to this moment
Discipline to take advantage of the time and never 
Forget that my body needs food

With the Muay Thai I learned how to be peacefully ready to any storm
I learned to use the pain on my benefit 
Cause I'm ready to face the suffering 
It's like they say, no pain no gain!

Revolutionary is revolutionize yourself,
You must change yourself to change the place that you're in as well,
So get ready to turn into a new model
