Mr. Wiggles, Vegan Hip Hop Legend

June 20, 2011

If you don't know Mr. Wiggles, you're about to witness an international treasure, one of the original innovators of Hip Hop culture (interviewd here by his friend, my honey, Justin Bua). Best known for his popping, this South Bronx Puerto Rican grew up during the birth of Hip Hop and has fine-tuned his skills in ALL elements of Hip Hop as a member of three legendary forces in the culture: Rock Steady Crew, the Electric Boogaloos, and the Zulu Nation.

Wiggles' career spans decades, he's married with six kids, and he's still got the energy to dance circles around the planet year after year. WTF??? VEGAN FOR 20+ YEARS, that's what!

Wiggles was turned on to eating right in the 1970s by Afrika Bambaataa, one of the founding fathers of Hip Hop (Bam gave the culture its name). Bam took kids under his wing, but they had to abide by his rules of the Zulu Nation. Watch the first video and see what happened back in the days if you were caught eating pork while trying to be down with Zulu...

And here's Wiggles doing his thing—watch, the music dances to Wiggles, not the other way around!
