Hip-Hop Stars Redman and Method Man Join GZA in Adopting Vegetarian Diet

10576957-method-man-and-redman.jpgAccording to ABC News, Wu-Tang Clan cofounder GZA has inspired fellow hip-hop artists Redman and Method Man to adopt a vegetarian diet.

Longtime vegetarian GZA told RedBullUSA.com: "I used to tease Meth all the time about him eating steaks...but he just recently came up to me and said both he and Redman are vegetarians now."

In a 2010 interview on Eater, GZA also revealed that he had shared videos about the health impacts of consuming a typical meat-heavy Western diet to band members and family to encourage them to make the switch to a plant-based diet.

Redman and Method Man join the growing list of high-profile celebrities who have decided to ditch cruelty by adopting a vegan lifestyle, including Meredith Vieira, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, and Russell Simmons.
