Hip-hop stars Method Man and Redman have given up meat and turned vegetarian after years of teasing from their rap pal GZA.

Gza, who has long been eating an all-green diet, reveals he used to poke fun at Method Man for feasting on steaks, but the All I Need hitmaker has since decided to follow in his Wu-Tang Clan bandmate's footsteps and become a veggie.

The group co-founder tells RedBullUsa.com, "I used to tease Meth all the time about him eating steaks, use to tell him he was 'Eatin' a pig p**sy T-bone'. He hated that s**t, but he just recently came up to me and said both he and Redman are vegetarians now."

And they aren't the only ones who have taken heed of Gza's diet advice - his tourmate Killer Mike has also started consuming more greens instead of just gorging on meat.

Killer Mike says, "He convinced me to be eating some veggies (sic), so that's cool."
