Just in time for his birthday today, Inglewood rapper Casey Veggies is coming off a three-track bender, and there’s still no sign of stopping.
Starting off with “The Boy” last Thursday, Veggies finally freed the HS87-produced banger he’s been performing live since 2013. At one point, there was speculation on a potential Drake feature for the finished product, but it turns out that Veggies didn’t need any help from OVO. Hit-Boy’s team gifted Veggies a nasty beat and he bodies it. The “love the boy” hook can get annoying but a Veggies and Hit-Boy collab is not something that will get overlooked just by a bit of repetition.
Three days down the line, Veggies blessed us on Sunday with “Lipstick on the Blunt,” featuring King Chip, which has turned out to be my personal favorite of the three. Produced by Mike Cash, the song hits with a hard growling saxophone sample, over heavy drums and several beat changes. The bassline is raw to say the least, and should have your rearviews shaking on the ride home for sure. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a huge Chip fan, so his verse and hooks coupled with Veggies recognizable flow makes it jam that will definitely get the rounds it deserves.
In his most recent cut, which he dropped Thursday, Veggies teams up with IAMSU! for the feature and production on “Backflip” in far more of a Bay-Area influenced track that takes a 180 from Sunday’s “Lipstick on the Blunt.” Honestly the beat sounds like a take right off of Chris Brown’s “Loyal” but I guess that’s what’s in these days. Even though it’s my least favorite of the three, the track will definitely get spins at parties this summer, and IAMSU! fans will be pleased as it falls in line with SU’s NorCal style.
Veggies shows off his versatility on all three tracks and hopefully there’s more to come for what’s left of summer.
