I’m not a fan of ranch dressing, but evidently Casey Veggies is; as the Los Angeles rhymesayer himself admits on his first solo feature, the latest leak off SMKA‘s new comp album, “I put it On Everything.” OK, OK, that may not have been the quote’s precise context. In fact, I pretty much made the ranch-dressing thing up for my own amusement. My gross disregard for journalistic standards aside, though, this ambitious jam could hardly be a better introduction to the ever-hustling Cali hopeful. Here, the ATL beat crew’s languid guitar riffs, mellow piano chords and handclap-led percussion set a smooth yet driving mood as the “young python” displays his superhuman drive to succeed. Providing moral support on the guest tip are not one but two freestyle series alumni; Memphis repper Skewby thanks God Almighty for his high IQ on the middle, and Motown’s Young Scolla tops it all off with a soulfully fresh hook and a strong closing verse. In addition to copping The 808 Experiment Vol. 3, released Tuesday and available for download here, fans can keep it locked to for all the latest from Casey Veggies.
