Waka Flocka Flame Shares Homemade Vegan Muffins

Famed rapper and 19-year-old singer/songwriter Raury bake their own vegan baked goods and talk about their meat-free lifestyles.

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame made his cooking show debut recently in a video for Vice Munchies in which he and fellow artist Raury made vegan blueberry muffins. The recording artists spoke to their vegan diets, with Waka saying, “Someone thought I was fighting cancer or something. I’m like ‘Naw, I didn’t want to be fat, I got tired of breathing hard, I got tired of my joints hurting.’” The two went on to the make the baked goods, combining coconut milk, coconut oil, flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, baking powder, baking soda, black salt, sugar, vanilla extract, and “sexy blueberries.” Later, the two spoke about the common vegan myths they’ve had to dispel. “The first thing people always ask me when I tell them I’m vegan is, ‘Where do you get your protein from?’ Because I don’t eat meat. There are so many things that give you more protein than meat: kale, black rice, black lentils, avocado, all types of beans.” Waka talked about eating vegan alongside omnivorous friends. “When we go out, people look at me, like I’m eating sides—mixed vegetables. They’ll be like, You eat broccoli all day?’ My boy says, ‘There goes Waka with the bowl of spinach,’ like being funny, but when I eat I got energy. When they eat they be sleeping. So it’s a big difference.” The duo’s muffins soon were ready and a hoard of friends came to taste test, with one remarking, “It doesn’t taste like vegan. This tastes, like, amazing.”
