Casey Veggies has blessed listeners with the release of his new album Organic, the Los Angeles rapper’s first album in four years since his 2015 release of Live & Grow. Veggies pulls back the curtains to his life experiences on this album. Most importantly, he does it in a way that is raw and real by using the skillful poetic imagery and hypnotic cadence that make him stand out from other rappers on the scene.
Veggies opens the album with a song titled “Dream$” announcing the album’s dedication to Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle, two hip hop influences we lost this past year. From the very beginning, you go through Veggies journey as he puts pen to paper illustrating the life changes he experienced in new detail. The song ends with an audio clip of Hussle talking about his desire to invest in assets and take care of his people, a message that sets the tone for the rest of the album.
The album moves into a more celebratory track with “Awarded” before Veggies shares his fears and motivations through“The Ceiling.” Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Casey Veggies album if he didn’t give you something to bop to while highlighting some of L.A.’s best legends. Dom Kennedy joins him on “Stop Playing,” while YG, E-40 and Bino Rideaux blow up your speakers with “I Came Up”. Other features on the album include The Game, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Kalan.FrFr.
The ten-track album is reportedly the first of four albums that he is working on, which means we likely won’t have to wait another four years for a new Casey Veggies experience. For now, we can experience the realness with Organic by clicking on the link below.
