Waka Flocka Is Done Being a Vegan: ‘They’re Like the Cops’
So, Waka Flocka is finished with being a vegan.
After switching to a plant-based diet in effort to change his lifestyle and shed pounds, the Atlanta rapper is officially over it.
In an interview with Paper, he says that at the end of the day, vegans are just way too aggressive—a sentiment that's pretty hard to disagree with, if we're being honest.
"I dropped the vegan card," he said. "I think saying that I'm a vegan is like putting a title on me. I'm making myself sound like I'm better than somebody else. If I'm saying I'm vegan and you're not vegan, what does that make you? A sloppy motherfucker? It fucks with me. Just to seem like, "Yo, you shouldn't eat meat, that's not good!" Like who's to say you can't eat meat? Technically, a plant has just as much life as an animal does, they just don't have the common sense or mindset, but it's the same power of life, it feels everything that we feel. When I started reading that vegans can't eat honey, I was like, y'all going too far. Let me fall back."
He goes on to say it's not "enlightened."
"They scare people and shit, like people are really scared of vegans. They're like the fucking cops. When vegans are around, people be trying to throw their food under the table, like oh, the vegans!"
Although he's done with being a vegan, he's not falling completely off the healthy wagon.
"I'm conscious about the things I put in my mouth and about the things that I drink," he insisted, also dropping information about prescription drugs found in tap water.
In addition to talking health, Waka also discussed new music he plans on releasing. Before an album, he plans to drop off a mixtape because he needs "to put people in the world of Waka."
"I think it's arrogant to put a CD out, and people's waiting," he said. "I think I just need to put a lot of music out just so I don't get out too late with this album."
