Damon Campbell Interviews Casey Veggies, Josh Peas, & Anwar Carrots

After being called a “young Nardwuar” during my interview with Action Bronson, I was anxious to see how people—especially folks within the industry—would react. Thankfully, the feedback thus far has been overwhelmingly supportive.

Nardwuar himself even reached out and not only expressed his approval, but even gave me a public endorsement of sorts. “That was awesome!” tweeted the Human Serviette after watching his, dare I say, protégé in action. Hey, you know what they say: If the shoe fits, wear it.

Speaking of which, when Big K.R.I.T.’s ‘Live From the Underground’ tour kicked off in Detroit, I caught up with supporting act Casey Veggies following his meet and greet at Burn Rubber Sneaker Boutique.

The 19-year-old Los Angeles rapper was flanked by his close friends and business partners, Josh Peas and Anwar Carrots of the clothing and management company Peas & Carrots International, for what he called his “best interview” to date. Undoubtedly high praise, particularly coming from an artist who was previously interviewed by…you guessed it: Nardwuar.

Damon Campbell Interviews Action Bronson: ‘Young Nardwuar Over Here?’

Moments after being introduced to Eminem’s manager and co-owner of Shady Records, Paul Rosenberg—who happened to be in attendance—I sat down with Action Bronson for an interview before his show at the Crofoot Ballroom in Detroit.

During our intimate and, at times, humorous conversation, I take the 27-year-old chef-turned-rapper of Albanian descent on a trip down memory lane, as we discuss particular souvenirs, injuries, and other obscurities of his past—and present.

“Is this a young Nardwuar over here?” proposes the Queens MC, grinning from ear to ear as I offer him a box of his favorite cereal, which he gladly accepts.

I was relieved to hear that despite a few minor bumps along the way, Bronsoliño did, in fact, enjoy our time together. “You do a good job,” he said, removing the blunt from his hand to give me knucks.

Hopefully you agree. Thanks for watching!
