After months and months of speculation, Veggies signed to Roc Nation for management, just as Rihanna, Wale, Santigold, M.I.A. and most recently, Meek Mill, did before before him.
Roc Nation’s official website already has an artist page dedicated to Casey under its management channel. Starting out as one of the founding members of Odd Future (OFWGKTA), Veggies dropped Customized Greatly Vol. 1 back in 2007 at the ripe age of 14.
Now, 19, signing to Roc Nation for management is certainly considered a power move, as MMG’s Meek Mill talked about last month.
“Yeah, that’s the new deal I put together,” Meek told LifeandTimes about Roc Nation helping to steer his career. “Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager – he’s just like me, we’ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.”
