Philadelphia rapper Cassidy recently addressed his short-lived feud with Meek Mill and why he is still down to battle rap a worthy opponent for at least $100,000.
According to Cass, Meek never showed an interest in wanting to go through with a battle.
“That’s over with. I said I wanted to get it popping and battle, you know, he ain’t respond, he don’t want to do it. So I ain’t gonna keep dwelling over that. It’d be good for hip-hop. It’d be good for everything man. It’d bring some more excitement to the game. Not taking anything away from the dudes that’s rhyming right now, but it’d be beneficial. He don’t wanna do that, you know what I’m saying? You can’t force a man to do something he don’t wanna do so it is what it is. I want at least $100K, but I want to put most of it up for charity. I’ma put it in a lot of different areas.” (Sway’s Universe)
Last week, Cass defended his decision not to drop a diss record on Meek’s head.
“I didn’t feel as though enough was done for him to deserve a diss record yet. He’s going to really have to get out-of-pocket, put me in a song or say something crazy to get a diss record.” Warned Cassidy, “I would advise him not to do it, because if he jumps in the ring with me, it’s going to be problems. He knows what I’m capable of, and he knows how I get it in, so I don’t blame him for backing out. If I was him, I would have backed out, too.” (AHH)
A week prior, Cass denied his new “Diary of a Hustla” track is aimed at the Maybach Music Group rapper.
“That’s because it wasn’t a diss record,” Cass said when asked why he did not go harder on Meek with “Diary of a Hustla.” “I just put it out a couple hours after we went through that Twitter situation so everybody called it a Meek diss but it wasn’t. It was just a record I just put out to give the streets some bars. If I do a diss record, it’s going to be on the ‘Ether’ level if not worse. It’s gonna be direct, you gonna know it’s a diss record, you gonna know who I’m talking about. That was a little record I threw out there for the streets to keep them fed.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Initially, Mill said he wanted to see Cass battle rap emcee Murda Mook.
“I’m a leader. I don’t follow people. We have a lane to take this to another level where a whole ‘nother money circuit could open up. I’m a leader. I’m willing to take the leadership and when I take that leadership, don’t be mad when I’m the only one getting that leader money and you might be battling for a little 40 or 50 grand because I’m the one that took the chance to open the door. You gotta have a hundred [thousand dolloars] or better. I can’t do it for free. That ain’t my lane. Win, lose or draw, just for even stepping on the court. Just to step in. … They got a million sponsors that’d love to have Meek Mill with that banner in the back for them going in to 20,000 people because when I battle, it ain’t going to be 5,000, it’s going to be 20,000 people or better. I ain’t doing no home court advantages. … I think I’d [match up] Cassidy and [Murda] Mook right now. That’d be crazy right there. I’d do Cassidy and Mook. … Cassidy ain’t been in a battle but everybody knows, Cassidy, that’s what he do.” (The Warner Sound)
