Ghostface Killah and GZA are giving plant-based eating a try.
The Wu Tang Clan members were featured in a limited web series, Wu-Tang In Space Eating Impossible Sliders, in conjunction with the meatless burger option appearing on White Castle’s menu. “It’s kind of crazy on Earth right now,” Ghostface explains in the humorous clip. “So we came to space to get some perspective and acquire some knowledge.”
In an interview with Vibe, Ghostface talks about how similar to taste and look the Impossible patty is to real meat, and what he loves on a burger: “I love cheese and I love onions, pickles and crunchy things. That’s as far as I go with having things crunchy on my burger. I wouldn’t go as far as having carrots on my burger. I’ll just keep it simple with pickles and cucumbers and some raw onions.”
He also discussed growing awareness in the hip-hop community toward conscious eating, noting that “it’s all about the body now.”
“We’re getting older and we were never taught these things as kids; how to eat the right portions or the right food,” he continued. “For the hip-hop community, for us to get ahead and go the vegan route or just reducing how much meat you eat, I think it’s great for hip-hop, the youth and the future, everybody.
