It was announced earlier in February, but now PETA has unveiled their new Ink, Not Mink ad featuring their first ever rapper.

Waka Flocka Flame, who is photographed almost completely nude save for some well-placed bling (yes, that is a jewel-encrusted Fozzie Bear), is a Southern hip hop artist best known for his single “No Hands”.

“Understand where that fox fur came from before you spend $1,000…someone got their head beat in and electrocuted,” the heavily tattooed rapper says in a new interview. “Understand what you buy, instead of just going off fashion and what it looks like-that’s what I’d tell my community.”

Waka joins Pink, Kid Sister, Chuck D, Travie McCoy, Mario, and others who have lent their support to the animal rights organization. Check out a video interview with the star after the jump below.

    How can anybody support these two faced hypocritical mass murderers? According to documents from the Commonwealth of Virginia, where PETA’s headquarters is at (Norfolk, Virginia to be specific) they euthanized 97% of the adoptable dogs and cats brought to their headquarters in 2011 as part of their “last resort euthanasia” program. They say that they couldn’t find homes for the pets, but they probably didn’t even try. They say they are not a shelter, but with a $25 million annual operating budget, they certainly could afford to open and run one.
