Vegan Rapper Grey Inspires Jada Pinkett-Smith to Host Plant-Based Thanksgiving

Smith’s favorite rapper—who has freestyled about vegan mashed potatoes for three years—convinces the actress to serve plant-based dishes this holiday season.


Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith added plant-based dishes to her family’s Thanksgiving celebration this year thanks to her favorite rapper “Grey.” Last week, Pinkett-Smith shared a video of Grey rapping about a vegan Thanksgiving with her 4.9 million followers on Instagram. “We’ll be serving some of that Thanksgiving #PlantBasedDrip[pin] this year,” Pinkett-Smith captioned the video. Grey founded vegan clothing brand Plant Based Drippin after his first vegan Thanksgiving video, released in 2016, garnered more than 2.5 million views. The rapper has released a new Thanksgiving video every year, and his 2017 rendition (the one shared by Pinkett-Smith) features special guest, vegan chef Nikki Ford—who is expecting a child with Grey and prepared the couple’s vegan Thanksgiving this year.
