In case you haven't noticed, Cali is active. This year has been a glorious one for the West Coast, highlighted by the recent release Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city. But the artist formerly known as K. Dot isn't the only one making major moves. While vets like Game and Snoop Lion have stayed relevant, relative newcomers like TDE's Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q have also released excellent projects this year, Dom Kennedy dropped an anthem with the smash "My Type of Party," and Earl Sweatshirt is back, dissing Complex on his new single.

Not to be overlooked, 19-year-old rapper Casey Veggies is also on the rise. After dropping his mixtape Customized Greatly Vol. 3 earlier this year, he just released his track "Life$tyle" off his upcoming project slated for next year. Before that happens, we got down with the Odd Future-affiliated rapper to talk about his favorite albums.

Rather than go the cliché route and name nothing but obvious classics, Casey kept it funky and talked about the projects that not only shaped his career but his life. So click on, read up, and remember to eat your vegetables.
