Wu-Tang Clan's GZA a Raw Foodie Vegetarian?

GZA is one of Wu-Tang Clan's founding members and is thought of by many to be one of hip-hop's best lyricists. But did you know that he's also a raw foodie and vegetarian? I had no idea until catching his interview with Eater.

GZA has been a vegetarian since "about 1996-7" and has "cut out dairy, chicken, fish, and turkey throughout the years." Was he raised a vegetarian? Nope. GZA says:

Well, I wasn't raised a vegetarian, I wish I was, though. I mean, that's really the best way to go. I just learned at a young age and stopped eating some things. As far as being a vegetarian it's a moral thing, a health thing, a conscious thing — a combination of all. I think it's better to be that way. When I was growing up I never really ate vegetables, I was just a hot dog, hamburger, french fry person like most kids.
