We have an announcement!
19-year-old Casey Veggies recently signed on as a brand ambassador for Puma and will be featured in an upcoming campaign for the sneaker and lifestyle brand. The California native opened up about how it feels to join Usain Bolt and MMG's Meek Mill on the Puma roster.
"I’m super excited and really happy they partnered up with us," Casey tells VIBE. "I want to do some collabs, some Peas & Carrots Puma collabs, hopefully. We’re just going to have fun with it." Veggies' Peas & Carrots Intl clothing brand just opened up a boutique in Los Angeles, fulfilling a lifelong dream for the young rapper.
The German based footwear company caught Veggies' eyes with their authenticity and longevity. Veggies says the Puma Clydes are his favorite model and hopes to have his own signature shoe somewhere down the line.
While rappers such as Rick Ross and Lil Wayne have recently lost endorsement deals due to controversial lyrics, young Casey doesn't believe he'll run into a similar problem. "If you listen to my music, not to say that there is a filter there, but there's always a conscious effort to try to keep it something I can play for my grandma... something I can play for my mom," he added. "That’s what its all about, for me. I always watch my lyrics."
Stay tuned for more big announcements from Puma.
