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