Philadelphia rapper Cassidy and hit-making producer Swizz Beatz‘s personal relationship may be as distant as their music estrangement as the Full Surface protege speaks out against his former mentor.
Taking to popular social medium Twitter, Cass exposed their distanced relationship.
“@THEREALSWIZZZ don’t even answer my calls anymore: we ain’t speak in over a year: i thought we was fam, but times change, Smh That why I changed.. Ain’t no love loss.. It is what it is..,” Cass tweeted May 25th.
“@THEREALSWIZZZ it’s never a war, I’m just speaking my mind.. How can we talk if you never pick up, You said you let me do my own thing ASAP, but what does that have to do wit communicating, since I’m doing my own thing you don’t talk to me anymore.. Thats crazy..”
“@THEREALSWIZZZ the only reason I’m on twitter is cause that’s the only way I can reach you.. RealRap.” (Cassidy’s Twitter)
While direct responses to Cass were not found on his Twitter page, Swizzy did say his focus was purely on positive energy moving forward.
“Positive vibes in 2011 plus anything else will not be accepted point blank period!!!!!!!#lifeis2short4BS,” he tweeted May 25. (Swizz Beatz’s Twitter)
Beatz is specifically known for lending support on Cass’ “Drink & My 2 Step” 2007 and guiding the rapper’s career around the early 2000’s.
The first MC of significance to be supported by Swizz Beatz’s J-affiliated Full Surface label, Cassidy is a fresh-faced Philadelphian who gained a lot of attention as a battle rapper — with a successful bout against Freeway as one of the first feathers in his cap. People who had been following him through several mixtape appearances were more than a little surprised by the angle taken on his first solo single, “Hotel.” (All Music)
Last weekend, Cass addressed a New Jersey arrest related to violating a probation.
“I’m still on probation from the situation I dealt with about six, seven years ago,” Cass told Cosmic Kev in an interview. “[Me living in New Jersey,] that’s why the police bought the whole SWAT team…I wasn’t even sure what I was charged with. they bringing the whole SWAT team out, they talkin’ about I’m on maximum security, I’m armed and dangerous — I didn’t even know what I was goin’ down for. I was confused and if I know if I was confused the people in the streets were definitely confused.” (Cosmic Kev)
