Beef And Broccoli

This song is by Immortal Technique and appears on the album Revolutionary Vol. 1 (2001).

Look, let me make something abundantly clear for people
That're so bereft of activities they feel like they have to comment on every one of mine
First of all, being a vegetarian should never be associated with being a revolutionary or being
That's a dietary choice
If someone wants to proliferate the type of ignorance we're supposed to be fighting by thinking that
You're just fucking yourself
I don't go around promoting beef and poultry
Shoving it in people's faces
I don't castigate people for not eating steak sandwiches
And I would never diss someone for being a fucking broccoli head
Or living off radishes or eating grass or tofu
I like a lot of vegan cuisine
But the illogicality of expecting everyone to adopt your particular idea of what being healthy is
Is just preposterous
I seen some of you herbivores
And if you wanna argue health y'all need to eat some kind of supplement
Cause some of y'all are so fuckin' skinny it's disgusting
Lookin' like the only hip hop motherfuckers on Schindlers List
Being a malnutritioned ass has nothing to do with being a revolutionary or being on point
I'll be damned if I let somebody else push their agenda on me
You know I don't eat pork, not 'cause I'ma Muslim, I just don't really like it
But I really will fuck a bird up
And fish is good when that stuff is fresh
It's like my nigga Vast Aire from Cann Ox said:
"If you don't like the smell of burning meat well than get the fuck off the planet"
You know I don't criticize people for eating moss
Then don't open your fuckin' mouth about my food man
I like beef and broccoli motherfucker! Mind your goddamn business
Matter of fact, you know what? I'm out
I feel like some arroco pollo, a banana daquiri and a motherfuckin' bestal benano
