Casey Veggies has an old school vibe about him despite only being 25-years-old. The Los Angeles rapper built his name as a founding member of Odd Future, becoming one of the most well-known artists in the collective. While he never reached the same heights as Tyler, The Creator or Frank Ocean, Veggies has the skills and the talent to take him as far as he wants to go. He’s never been too interested in conforming to a popularized trap sound, instead preferring to stick to his guns and deliver lyrics, flows, and vibes in his laid-back California manner. His latest single “Mirage” showcases what he can do on the mic, joined by some stellar production from Mike & Keys.
“Mirage” brings back memories from a few years ago, utilizing a flow similar to Joey Bada$$ and XXXTentacion in “Infinity (888).” Veggies has always been consistent in the game and he’s bound to deliver again this year. What do you think of the new track?
I been dreaming since, like, 8-years-old
I always knew that I could make shit grow
And we can take shit there
Real shit is on the rise, I can feel it in the air
But it feel like a mirage, yeah, cause it ain’t really there
