Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Last night, rapper Grey received PETA’s “2017 Best Song Award” for his smash hit “Vegan Thanksgiving”—which has 20 million views and counting—during a PETA event at Sublime Restaurant & Bar in his native South Florida. The animal-friendly star—who just released his new EP, Missed Calls—has persuaded countless fans to ditch meat and dairy “products” and instead load up their plates with “beans, greens, potatoes, and tomatoes” over the holidays with his viral freestyle. Photos are available here.
“From his massively popular video to his cool cruelty-free fashion label, Plant Based Drippin, Grey uses his talents to inspire others to eat and wear vegan,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, who presented the award. “PETA is excited to recognize this inspiring rapper for his work for animals at another national award winner, Sublime Restaurant.”
