Miami – What: Big-hearted (and big-eating) rapper Grey will receive PETA’s “2017 Best Song Award” for his smash hit “Vegan Thanksgiving”—the video for which has 20 million views and counting—during a festive afternoon on Sunday at South Florida’s gourmet vegan eatery Sublime Restaurant & Bar. 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, which has been an internet sensation and netted him invitations to appear at food events around the country, as everyone from father of hip-hop Russell Simmons to Miley Cyrus has gone vegan. Grey has been invited to perform at an outdoor music festival in Europe in 2018.
When: Sunday, November 12, 3:30 p.m.
Where: Sublime Restaurant & Bar, 1431 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale
“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 will present the award. “PETA is excited to recognize this inspiring rapper for his work for animals at another national award winner, Sublime Restaurant.”
In July, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—recognized Sublime with a “Top 10 Vegan Sundaes in the U.S.” award for its decadent dessert of homemade vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate sauce, and crushed roasted nuts.
