At the age of 14, Casey released his first mixtape, titled Customized Greatly Vol. 1; while he was going through by his stage name at the time, as Custom. Casey was one of the founding members of the hip hop collective Odd Future, appearing on the collective's first effort The Odd Future Tape, before he decided to branch out on his own, after his first mixtape release. In an interview with Respect Mag, Casey stated it as: "It’s hard to explain, really, but I just had more of a [different] vision for my own rap career. I wanted to do my own thing."
 While working with a fellow rapper and Def Jam's recording artist YG on his second mixtape, Veggies began to take rap much more seriously. In an interview with The Madbury Club, Veggies discussed how "strategic sponsorships, limited merchandise, organic partnerships, social presence and influence ability have proved fundamental in the success of Peas & Carats and thus, Casey Veggies"

Sean’s Mother and faith played a very important role in his love for music. Aware of his passion and hunger at an early age he sang, wrote songs, played drums and piano for his church and school choir.
As a young man growing up in Inglewood Hip Hop was everywhere. Its transformation of the streets made it impossible for Sean’s Mom to shelter his ears from the hypnotic melodies that captured his heart. Once he stepped off the porch he was engulfed by the heart of Hip Hop.
Being apart of the Hip Hop generation Sean’s world opened up. Hip hop friends, slang, clothes and films. New words and tempos filled his ears painting pictures in his mind that could not be stopped nor tamed; even though it was not allowed at home.
Sean was influenced by so many new and exciting elements both good and bad. He was given tools that caused him to have greater insight, trained ears, place new words to old melodies; relight fire to embers of old talents as well as create new pieces he calls SOUL.
By age 27 Sean Auguste has already completed 5 bodies of soul. Projects that contain music he has produced, wrote, recorded, sang, mastered, engineered, and distributed out of what is now Grateful Studios. An upper room where one can enter and create mystic encounters, answer prayers, and beautiful days.
Coming into his 6th project; Sean has broken new grounds in the sanctuary of his talents. Add that to a man who embodies the work ethic of greats like Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Kanye West, Tupac Shakur, Jay Z, and Stevie Wonder. his countless features and tittle of host on an up and coming radio show proves just how driven and respected Sean and his craft are.
Justin “Sean Auguste” is a force built of pure knowledge, passion, and raw energy. His work delivers volumizes of pure talent and raw emotion that can not be matched. Sean embeds his soul into all that he creates. After listening to him you can't help but become captured in Hip Hop’s heart as well.
