RZA, KRS-One, and Jermaine Dupri are just some of the huge names in the hip-hop universe that are making rounds for promoting veganism. While hip-hop hasn’t always been tied with the vegan lifestyle, the genre has been getting traction as of late as an effective vehicle for highlighting the benefits of going plant-based.
Nashville-based producer Cool Boy Bobby recently spoke about his thoughts on veganism and its role in hip-hop. He mentioned the initial challenge he faced in transitioning to a plant-based diet due to his previous meat-eating habits. However, he eventually recognized the advantages of veganism and the detrimental effects of consuming meat on both health and the environment.
Cool Boy Bobby was on point in sharing his experience: “It wasn’t easy at first. Meat has been a staple in my diet, but that’s because I was raised in an environment wherein making it part of almost every meal is considered rather normal. But learning more about the benefits of veganism moving forward made me realize how much the consumption of meat has been so systematized to the point where healthier and more responsible options have been ignored.”
The switch to a cruelty-free diet has may haven’t been easy at first for Cool Boy Bobby, who admits that it can be difficult to change established habits and that vegan options can be expensive. Regardless, he remains optimistic about the potential for veganism to become more widespread. He hopes to use his growing following and music career to promote the vegan lifestyle, most especially through his “You Are Powerful” campaign.
Cool Boy Bobby’s You Are Powerful promotes personal growth and success. He hopes to inspire others to become their best selves using their own experiences and the support of a network of like-minded people. The focus of the campaign is on self-improvement that strengthens the body, mind, and spirit, and emphasizes the importance of individual agency in achieving success and inspiring others. His support for veganism clearly aligns with the motivations of this transformative movement.
