Casey Veggies: “Odd Future was blowing up at the same time [I was going on tour with Mac] so it felt like all the right timing. I gained a lot of respect from people knowing I was down with Odd Future. People know that we all respect each other, and we want to see each other win. They knew that we were a team, and people could see that. The fans aren’t stupid. They can see who’s real and who’s not, so I feel like a lot of the fans know that I’m one of the real ones.
I feel like I had a place in that group. Even to this day, I feel like I would have fit in perfectly. I probably would have taken it to another level. I was definitely a part of the group. It’s just people go their separate ways sometimes.
“When I was working with Odd Future, they had so many abstract ideas. We built that sound together, but we came from the left working with Tyler, The Creator and them. It influenced me to do something different, as well as having my flavor of being influenced by Kanye and Nas. I wanted to take those two, and put them together, and come up with a new style, and add on to it.
“I was a full member of Odd Future, I was one of the original members. But the way everybody’s schedule was, everybody’s lifestyle and what everybody was doing, I just was one of the ones that drew away. I got started doing my own thing with Peas and Carrots. We built our own thing we had that going on, so I branched away from what Odd Future and Tyler was doing.
“I feel like I had a place in that group. Even to this day, I feel like I would have fit in perfectly. I probably would have taken it to another level. I was definitely a part of the group. I never will say I wasn’t a part of the group, it’s just: people go their separate ways, sometimes. But we are still definitely working together and I want them to try and be on my album.”
