And now we have it: A song with an environmental message that doesn’t suck. In the form of a rap ode to organic farming, no less. Thank you, Yeo Valley Organic.

Conservation!”
Why rap about how awesome organic practices are? “If you’re going to talk about yourself and you’re going to talk about how great you are, rapping is pretty much the only art form that allows you to have that bravado,” said Julien Lutz (aka “Little X“), the legit rap music video director from Canada, in a behind-the-music video. Fun fact: It was his first time working with farmers.
