Thoughts on Cassidy?
« on: June 22, 2007, 12:18:00 PM »
Since I haven't seen too many threads on Cass around the forum, I thought I'd put this one up and see what the DubCC peeps thoughts are on him and his output.

Right now, I think he's one of the hottest MCs out - but that is from the admittedly small material I've heard from him. I always liked "I'm A Hustla," and have had that single on rotation for a long time, but my interest in this guy's music heated up with his guest appearance on Busta's "Psycho." He really outshined Bus and Papoose. His new single "My Drink And My 2 Step" is flames too. Sure, it's your first-single-club-banger and some people may hold that against the song, but Cassidy's flow on it is vicious. Plus, Swizz laced another monster beat.

I'm really anticipating Cass' "It Is What It Is" now. Dude's been through a murder case and a near fatal car crash since his last album. That could provide some compelling subject matter, and as long as Swizz continues this hot streak he shouldn't have to deal with the wack production problem. Just hope he doesn't go for too many guest appearances, 'cause "the Hustla" can definitely dominate solo IMO.

Dude is one of the sickest punchline based rappers ever. He's also pretty good at making cross over records, which is something that most eastcoast mixtape emcees have never been able to do. I think of Cassidy, and I think back to when I actually liked mixtapes.

I like how he goes into the story tellin' moments on his tracks. LOL.

'Aim For The Head' and 'Psycho' is my favorites wit him. I love 'C-Bonics' though.  :P

He's tight but I don't follow him or check for him, much.
