environmentally concious hip hop duo HERBIVORES is bgenius (aka bgreene) and “da grizza.” currently, they collaborate between 2 different cities on opposite coasts. here, in a DTS exclusive, they interview each other.
b : hey grizz … name some of your influences/inspirations ? some of mine are john lennon, mlk jr.
grizz : china white, purple haze, dominoes
b : nice … ok … some common themes that we cover in our rhymes are vegetarianism, personal responsibility, and of course, weed … let’s talk about these topics. i’ll start …
the best thing you can do for your body, mind, the planet, and most importantly, animals. i feel it’s the proper way to live life not just with what i eat (i eat alot of nutz) but what clothing i wear, what choices i make as a consumer, etc.
– personal responsibility
everyone’s responsibility as a HUMAN. i throw my rubbish in proper receptacles, i clean up after my dog.
white widow, kush, northern lights …
grizz : i don’t eat anything with eyez. i don’t need the guilt of something watching me whilst i eat on it.
b : word. HERBIVORES are also anti-thug. we hate that thug gangster bullshit.
grizz : i don’t care. live and let live. i’ve got a stretched hummer filled with packing peanuts. just kidding. that shit would be frivolous and wasteful. keep ya head up.
b : and lastly, give me a 5 song mix … here’s mine :
- don’t try so hard (queen)
- the end (escape key)
