Casey Veggies is now a signed artist–he inked a deal with Sylvia Rhone’s Vested In Culture imprint earlier this year–and is prepping his proper debut album, but for years the kid from Inglewood, has been grinding away steadily at both the underground and mainstream rap markets. His upcoming single, “The Boy”, produced by Hit-Boy and featuring Drake, will more than likely be one of his first initial “big breaks” but its no coincidence. Sleeping In Class, Customized Greatly 3 and Life Changes, all released in consecutive years starting in 2011 left little room for fans or critics to downplay Veggies’ talent and drive, and specifically, Life Changes may be the best example of that. Featuring the most focused production a Casey Veggies project has ever seen–thanks in large part to The Futuristiks and 1500 or Nothin’–Casey explained in song exactly what happens when one’s life changes, for either better or for worse. Sporadic guest appearances (Dom Kennedy, B.J. The Chicago Kid) allow the project to flow without too many style switches, and you’d be hard pressed to find a 20-year old rapper that can get his thoughts across as effortlessly as Veggies can.
