Exclusive: Casey Veggies Debuts “Mirror on the Wall”


| September 4, 2013 - 11:20 pm

Since VIBE began in 1993, we have brought our readers a plethora of outstanding artists and have watched many of them rise to superstardom. Still a fresh face on the hip-hop scene, Casey Veggies was born the same year we went into publication. In his 20 years, the Inglewood, California-bred rapper has created his own brand — Peas & Carrots — and buzz since dropping his debut mixtape at the age of thirteen.

He has released five mixtapes total — three of which come from his Customized Greatly volume. His latest, Life Changes, was released in January of this year.

When asked how it feels to have his name brought up with other emerging West Coast rappers such as TDE’s Schoolboy Q and OFWGKTA’s Tyler, the Creator, Veggies says, “It feels great just to have my name involved in the circle.”

He adds, “I was really just a vulnerable, young kid that didn’t really know what he was getting himself into, that just wanted to be creative and put his thoughts on paper, and it just turned into something bigger.”

Young Veggies performed for an intimate crowd at Sonos Studio in Los Angeles in celebration of VIBE’s 20th anniversary. Here he debuts a new track for us titled “Mirror on the Wall.” Check it out below and lookout for a new LP from Veggies coming soon.
