Most hip-hop artists would be happy to achieve just one of the accomplishments that Casey Veggies has, and then coast through their careers from there. But being a founding member of Odd Future was not enough for Casey, so he decided to branch out on his own soon after the group landed on the public’s radar. After releasing two solo mixtapes, he then played a fundamental role in the establishment of Peas & Carrots International, the acclaimed LA-based management and clothing company. He has since released several more mixtapes, to much high praise, and continues to perform with his Odd Future friends Tyler, the Creator and Hodgy Beats, as well as the likes of Nipsey Hussle and Kendrick Lamar.
This is all made that much more impressive by the fact that Casey just turned 20 this summer. If he’s accomplished all that in just a few years on the scene, imagine how long this list of achievements will be by the time he’s 30.
Recently, we caught up with Casey while he was in the studio, busily working on his next project. You can check out the conversation in the video above, which focuses on Casey’s thoughts on his career, his Inglewood roots, and his new partnership with PUMA.
