Casey Jones (born July 18th, 1993), better known by his stage name Casey Veggies, is an American singer-rapper from Los Angeles, California. Although this 90’s baby came into high school with hoop dreams (playing shooting guard for Inglewood High School's Sentinels) the L.A. native soon realized that he had another talent worth pursuing to a much better degree - rapping. Back in ninth grade, the young MC had been recording songs and posting them on his Myspace page just for fun. After receiving positive feedback on a few of the tracks, Veggies began to re-evaluate his relationship with music.
With his first mixtape project, 2007’s Customized Greatly Vol. 1, the 16 year-old lyricist proved that he had the potential to be more than just another Myspace artist. He followed up that project a year later with Customized Greatly Vol. 2 which produced “I’m Right Here” and “It’s All Good,” two songs that picked up around the city his local city of Inglewood. By junior year, he realized that this was something that he not only wanted to do, but needed to do. Soon enough, he was making a name for himself amongst the younger crowd in Los Angeles, but now he has his sights set on greater gains. CG Vol. 1 was somewhat of an experiment, CG Vol. 2 a test, but now the teen-aged spitter is ready for graduation.
Sleeping in Class, his third solo project, and arguably his most evolved yet, promises to be a culmination of the lessons he’s learned over the last couple of years. The tape proves that while the young artist is not quite seasoned, his potential is definitely ripe. Under the tutelage and management of Arrogant Veggies, the brand/creative circle of friends behind him and their affiliated clothing line, Peas and Carrots and his steadfast work ethic, Veggies is sure to provide what we all want to listen to; good music.
He has collaborated with Tyler The Creator, Dom Kennedy, and has worked with and opened on tour supporting Mac Miller. Casey was also nominated for the XXL 2012 Freshman 10.
