With the help of Philly Open Air Church Pastor Jomo K. Johnson, Cassidy releases a track off the soundtrack to his Behind B.A.R.S. biography. Shouts to hhnm.
“Behind B.A.R.S.” takes the reader through a harrowing journey of the rise, rhyme, and redemption of the the Greatest Battle Rapper of our generation. Both tragic and triumphant, exhilarating and exciting, all fans of Hip Hop will be shackled by this amazing journey.
Cassidy records a new track for his upcoming collaborative Hip Hop E.P. in support of his new book “Behind B.A.R.S” (April 30th) with Pastor Jomo K. Johnson of the Philly Open Air Church. Props to HHNM.
“They say that your entire life flashes before your eyes before death. This book consists of what flashed before me the night of my near-fatal car accident. Some of these event I have not shared with anyone.”
On the phone with MTV, Cassidy speaks on his past relationship with Meek Mill (before MMG scooped him up), the recent back and forth’s on Twitter and musically and if there was a chance that they could squash their “beef” and get on a song together.
It’s not personal beef. I don’t wanna see anything happen to him or anybody around him. I’m just competitive and I take my music seriously. At first I was gonna leave it alone. I thought he wanted to battle me, like he was calling me out, but when I found out he wasn’t, I left it alone — until he started tweeting certain things about me and being disrespectful.
I didn’t wanna make it a real beef or anything like that. I felt like if we had anything to say to each other, we could put it in a rap battle and prove to the streets who’s really the best, who really run the city that we’re both from and who’s qualified to be talking crazy. That’s all it was about.
He used to call my phone all the time, asking me to hear his music. I actually used to help him write his raps and give him information back in the day, but ever since he got his deal, things changed. He stopped calling me, stopped communicating, stopped doing records together — it’s like he was a whole different type of person. I reached out a couple times, I don’t know if he was just busy or if he just changed, but it wasn’t exactly the same as before he [got a deal].
