Seventeen year old MC Casey Veggies has been rhyming since the ninth grade…which was around 2007. His drive and determination to make his career jump off in a major way has further proven that the next generation of hip hop is playing no games when striving to make their dreams come true.
Sleeping In Class showcases Casey’s clever wordplay and blunt honesty in its best form: in song. Everyone knows that when listening to music, especially hip hop, that I favor tone over all and I’m feelin’ his tone over everything.
Apparently, I’m not the only one feelin’ Casey because he was all over SXSW on the low – which pisses me off because I was there but heard nothing about him – including a set at the VIBE Respect the West showcase. Not too shabby for a teenager who’s yet to graduate from high school, but no worries; he’s scheduled to walk the stage this year.
Then the real work will begin.
