New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Today, Masego releases "Veg Out (Wasting Thyme)." The piano-driven trap plea for rest and peace is the latest view into Masego's ever shifting, melting pot psyche and his confidence in flow and lyricism. "Veg Out" is a taste of new music to come later this year.

The video for "Veg Out (Wasting Thyme)" is also out now. The playful visuals see Masego grooving around his Los Angeles home as a fish-eye lens pans to reveal several versions of "Veg Out" cleverly spelt out using apples, sweet potatoes, lemons, peppers and more.

Masego recently released "King's Rant" and celebrated his global hit "Tadow" earning an RIAA Gold Certification. His recent NPR Music Tiny Desk session surpassed five million views and sees him jamming out on his saxophone and running through a selection of his hits from "Tadow" to "Queen Tings," bringing energy and even comedic levity to a set where Masego is in his element.

Masego is a self-taught singer, rapper, songwriter, comedian, producer, DJ, and more, all skills that he fuses into his self-described genre "TrapHouseJazz." He has toured around the world and has performed with Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, J. Cole, Ari Lennox, and more. His debut album, Lady Lady, landed on several Billboard charts, including No. 4 on Top New Artist Albums Consumption, No. 13 on R&B Album Sales, No. 22 on Heatseekers Albums, No. 40 on R&B/ Hip Hop Album Sales charts. The 13-song collection featured collaborations with SiR, FKJ, Tiffany Gouche, Kehlani, and De'Wayne Jackson. Born in Jamaica, he took on the stage name Masego meaning "Blessing" and "Prosperity" in the Tswana language that also comes from his South African heritage.
