Waka Flocka’s long awaited nude PETA campaign has been released.
Wearing nothing but strategically placed bling, rapper Waka Flocka Flame shows off his tattoos—and more—in his brand-new PETA campaign ad, which urges, “Ink, Not Mink. Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin and Let Animals Keep Theirs.”
The ad was shot by top celebrity photographer Robert Sebree for the campaign that’s soon to feature Britney Spears and Lady Gaga.
In an exclusive PETA interview, Waka urges the hip-hop community to consider the animals who are cruelly killed for fur coats, collars, and cuffs.
“Understand where that fox fur came from before you spend $1,000…someone got their head beat in and electrocuted,” he says “Understand what you buy, instead of just going off fashion and what it looks like—that’s what I’d tell my community.”
Waka also speaks out against forcing animals to perform in circuses.
“I don’t agree with that at all,” he says. “That Shyte is whack.”
The Flockaveli MC is the first rapper to star in PETA’s iconic “Ink, Not Mink” campaign.
Other musicians who have joined with PETA to speak out against fur include Pink, Kid Sister, Mark Ronson, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy, Dave Navarro, Chuck D, Masta Killa, Murs, and Mario,among many others.
