Inspiration is an interesting thing. Sometimes it lends itself freely and at other times it’s nowhere to be found. In the life of a creative, few things are more precious than inspiration. But most of us have neither the time nor the resources to await its fleeting favor. The grind is real, and with or without that coveted burst of creative energy, this work must get done and these deadlines met!
However, on occasion, you come across an artist who provides a path to personal creativity, one whose work consistently triggers inspiration. For me, that artist is Casey Veggies. Not only does he spit dope verses, but his career trajectory is also inspiring.
At age 24, the Inglewood born rapper is already a seasoned industry veteran. The songwriter cut his teeth on the rough and tumble L.A. hip-hop scene at just 14-years-old with the release of his first mixtape. He then went on to co-found the remarkable Odd Future rap collective with Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Hodgy Beats, and Domo Genesis.
Ten years later, with a string of mixtapes under his belt, proven independent viability, and the successful release of his first debut studio album, Live & Grow, his chill flow and undeniable talent still resonates.
How does he stay so connected to his audience? What sets Casey Veggies apart from the infinite number of up and coming rappers and musicians in the game? How much of his remarkable success is owed to pure talent, and how much to consistency, and hustle?
For up and coming artists, the answers to these questions can mean the difference between making it and not. With this premise in mind, we gave Atlanta based hip-hop artist, Dewey Da Don exactly one minute to ask Casey Veggies everything he wanted to know about what it takes to be successful in the music industry.
