Who is Casey Veggies?
Well, for those of you who don’t know? Let’s just say! It’s safe to add him to the West-Coast roster. But before we place Young Veggie on the roster, I need everyone’s undivided attention first, as I explain why he’s Lovethistrack’s Spotlight artist this week. See, in the beginning, Veggie was a basketball player who loved the game. However, he did not receive the necessary minutes that an athlete needs in order to spark a scout’s interest. As a result, he decided to focus on something that he could have better control over, something that allowed him to control his own fate, something where he didn’t have to say “Hey, coach, can you put me in!” but more like, “When is my next show” or “How many interviews do I have lined up”.
Ladies and Gentlemen! Allow me to introduce Casey Veggies or should I say “Fresh Veggies”. The guy is 22 years old and has already dropped a total of 8 mix-tapes. The mix-tape titled Sleeping in Class not only caught the non-believers attention, it also caught Jay-z’s attention as well, which is why in 2012, Roc-Nation Management was blessed with Fresh Veggies on their roster. In 2013, Sylvia Rhone who is the CEO of the “Vested in Culture” label, which is a combined project of Epic Records, signed Veggies also. That very same year Puma signed the young fella as a Brand Ambassador. The point I’m trying to make is that these successful business owners are investing in Veggies because they foresee his destiny.
Can he Rap? Do he got what it takes to survive in the rap game? People! Let me explain something to you. Veggies is very, very, well equipped. If I personally had to compare him to someone I wouldn’t’ compare him as of yet because artistry is different. The name “Veggies” alone is so unique and could be branded so many ways. His flow is smooth, especially his ability to rap within the beat, rather than rapping over the beat. His delivery, wordplay and overall sound are so catchy that you can’t help but to listen. Obviously, others feel the same way because he’s done collab’s with Dej Loaf, Mac Miller, YG and Kid Capri. Two of my personal favorite songs are Tied Up and She’s in my Car.
Now, for whatever reason, he was omitted from the 2014 freshman class cover of the XXL, which no one including him, didn’t understand. Fans can’t grasp the fact why, because some of the ones that were on there have become so musically irrelevant lately, that you may often find yourself doing Google searches periodically just to see what they are doing. However, we can’t say the same about Veggies because he’s still making music and he’s dropping a highly anticipated album on September 25 of this year titled Live & Grow. In the meantime, you can find him doing interviews and in various blogs across the board because as a blogger, we know who’s next in line for greatness and Casey Veggie most definitely “Got next”.
