The re-emergence of the West Coast in the game has spawned a lot of new and young MCs to carry on the legacy that comes with the coast’s history. The big difference in 2012 is diversity. We’ve witnessed eras come and go, sometimes within a year or less. There’s all sorts of rappers to satisfy more than that of a G-Funk era perhaps. One of the young’n's on the forefront of Inglewood, CA is Casey Jones, better known as Casey Veggies.
At only 19, Young Veggies has accomplished more than the average and some of his fellow Rap peers. His affiliations with Mac Miller, XV and Big K.R.I.T. have lead to three big U.S. tours in the last year with the latter being his current. He’s put out several projects, latest being Customized Greatly Vol. 3, and aims to put out his debut album within the next calendar year. The PNCINTL leader has also just signed on to Roc Nation for management, joining the ranks of Wale, Shakira, MIA, Meek Mill and more.
Speaking with Sermon’s Domain for the second time, we discussed possible work with Big K.R.I.T., how he linked up with Travi$ Scott, if he’d want to sign to a major label, his YNM project and why it’s on the back-burner, his debut album and more. Full synopsis below.
