Casey Veggies Speaks On Influences, Names Kanye West & Nas

The former Odd Future member also explains that he's trying to improve on his craft.

Former Odd Future member Casey Veggies has been finding success on his own, making waves with his Sleeping in Class mixtape. Speaking with Distortion 2 Static, the Los Angeles, California upstart recently spoke on who's been on his playlist as influence, naming Kanye West and Nas as some of his favorites.

"When I was younger, definitely it was Kanye West, The College Dropout album, back in the day. Nas’ Illmatic album influenced me heavily. Just life in general. All my music is really based off of everyday emotions and stuff like that. I gotta live it to write it, so that’s how I break," he said.

He also expressed his desire to have a career with longevity in the game, even though he's already traveled far to get where he is today. "I started at like 12, 13 and then we just built it up from the ground. It’s beautiful, everything’s natural. So it’s just beautiful," he said. "I just been working at it for four years and now I’m trying to get better and better, stay in the game."

    I just paid $24,31 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic GF 1 Camera that we got for $34,26 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $678 which only cost me $68,18 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentSpace.com

      LMAO he didn't mean it like that. That was a blatant move to get more people on him.

      Just because nas was an influence doesn't mean that the influence reflects on their music. It's too easy to pick a legend in the game and say, this guy influenced me, as though we should take that as something reputable and be like, oh okay, now he's worth listening to. Sorry but, it really just doesn't work like that. If I can't hear Nas' poetic social commentary in your lyrics then you're not worth the time let alone the cosign.
