Casey Veggies is set to close out the summer with his upcoming debut album, Live & Grow on September 25. The Inglewood thoroughbred, who has maintained a considerable buzz over several years and several mixtapes, recently went on Genius to talk about where he’s at now and where he’s headed next in a slew of annotations. In them he discussed a range of topics,  from his preference in women to playing his album in its entirety for his label head, Jay Z.

On his type of woman:

I like a mix of simple and classy. I like the outgoing type and the classy nerd. Maybe she wears glasses.

On working with Dej Loaf on “Tied Up”:

DeJ speaks for the ladies! Her hook opened a lot of girls’ eyes up to the record and they gave the song a shot. We are both young artists in the game so we felt very tied to the message of the song.

On Jay Z’s favorite song from his album:

I’ve been managed by Roc Nation for about two or three years now but never met Jay. We both were in the office recently and he listened to my whole album. I thought he would be like “Alright, play a few, and then I have to go to a meeting.” But he listened to the whole thing. An hour and a half. He said “Wonderful” was his favorite song.
When I was six or seven years old my Dad was Jay Z’s bodyguard. He’s in the Girls, Girls, Girls video!
