REVEALS ETHIKA AND PEAS & CARATS INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION
WATCH LIVE & GROW ALBUM TRACK-BY-TRACK AT THE SOURCE.COM
Inglewood’s own Casey Veggies hotly anticipated full-length debut album, LIVE & GROW is available now through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. LIVE & GROW boasts star-studded collaborations with the hottest names in hip-hop—including DJ Mustard, Hit-Boy, Tyler, the Creator and Dom Kennedy, plus a cameo from Snoop Dogg.
With the release of LIVE & GROW, Casey Veggies makes the leap from mixtape prodigy to mainstream phenom after heating up the airwaves with his singles ‘Backflip’ featuring YG and IAMSU! and ‘Tied Up’ featuring Dej Loaf. The albums chart-bound new banger ‘Wonderful’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign, was the most-added record at the US rhythm format last week, beating out stiff competition from hip-hop heavyweights Dr. Dre and Drake.
LIVE & GROW’s many highlights include ‘Actin’ Up’ produced by DJ Mustard and featuring longtime friend and collaborator Dom Kennedy, whom Casey Veggies will join on his By Dom Kennedy US tour next month.
Straight out of the gate, LIVE & GROW arrives to high praise from fans, peers and critics alike. In a rave review, LA Music Blog called it, “The album every hip-hop head has been waiting for,” going on to add, “LIVE & GROW will live on past its generation because of how real it is.” Casey Veggies also opened up about the making of the album in an exclusive track-by-track interview featured on The Source, where he discusses the genesis and creation of all 13 tracks in deep detail.

Managed by Roc Nation and sponsored by PUMA, Casey Veggies has been busy gearing up for the release of LIVE & GROW since the start of summer 2015. In June, he appeared as himself and performed ‘The Boy’ in the critically acclaimed film DOPE and also slayed the stage at the BET Experience’s From LA to the Bay concert. In July, he celebrated his 22nd birthday and the grand reopening of his hugely popular Peas & Carats International (PNCINTL) streetwear boutique in Los Angeles while crisscrossing the country during a radio promo tour in support of ‘Tied Up’. In August, he appeared on REVOLT Live, opening for Future’s DS2 Takeover at the Hollywood Palladium, curated a collection for BET’s #HowtoRock:Kicks Fashion Show that was livestreamed from NYC’s Milk Studios on August 27th, and rocked the mic at BET Presents Freestyle Friday at the Sprite Corner, which aired on August 28th. He’s also teamed up with the underwear brand Ethika for a newly announced limited edition collaboration with PNCINTL, available exclusively at ethika.com and the PNCINTL store in Los Angeles.
Indeed, Casey Veggies is much more than “one of the best hip-hop artists repping the West Coast right now,” as recently described by Complex. He’s also a successful entrepreneur and business owner, and a passionate philanthropist on a mission to uplift and inspire young kids by setting a positive example through his music and a nonprofit called Give & Grow that he established to provide PNCINTL clothing to underprivileged kids in his hometown of Inglewood, CA.
