The next artist’s style to be highlighted by Footaction is Casey Veggies, who sat down in New York on the stoop of a Brownstone house to talk about Cali style and his own style with Kazeem Famuyide. Veggies’ rap and music style combines well with his dress–very smooth. Rappers like Casey Veggies, YG and G-Eazy have mentioned one important point on a man’s style development that his wardrobe choices go along with his mood. Veggies and G-Eazy both, when going to work in the studio prefer to be as comfortable as possible choosing jogger pants and/or a hoodie. Casey highlighted changing trends of East Coast and West Coast style of dress stating that although some selections haven’t changed, Ex: wearing chucks (West Coast), Timms (East Coast), the jeans would be worn different. At one point on the “Veggie Stoop” piece, the interviewer asks him how he dresses to impress the ladies and Veggies (real name Casey Jones), says that he knows he needs to look good and won’t be presentable with his pants sagging.
On his new album, Live & Grow, Veggies introduces himself to the audience and talks about his life through the tracklist. The words and his delivery mesh well over the groove beats which get faster or slower and he combines with the melody to give the listener a song they can’t get out of their head. Veggies is affiliated with Peas & Carrots International, a very successful West coast clothing label that also had rap artists to put out music. From an article on Complex Magazine, “Who is Casey Veggies?”, he describes Peas & Carrots as “a clothing brand, a website, and it’s an all-around lifestyle guide on fashion & music.” The blogs on the site speak to people in the area where he and the other members, Anwar Carrots and Josh Peas grew up. Carrots no longer is part of the Peas & Carrots organization and it carries his stage name only in copyright. Veggies is now represented by Roc Nation. His album has great songs on it like Tied Up featuring DeJ Loaf, The King and Life Song, featuring BJ the Chicago Kid (another Footaction featured rapper).
