Philadelphia rapper Cassidy has stepped up to clarify his alleged “Diary of a Hustla” diss record and said despite the speculation it is not directed at music rival Meek Mill.
According to Cass, his new track got connected to Meek by the media and not him.
“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”)
He also explained why Meek is ultimately responsible for making him respond.
“I was in the studio the other day and I found out he’s talking crazy on Twitter — I’m thinking like, ‘Wow.’ Years and years ago, when he was in middle school, I had plaques on my wall. I got platinum singles everybody got their own opinion, it’s cool, he’s got his little wave right now, to a certain extent but I been did that. I been laid that groundwork for my city.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Although Mill did not address him direclty, he reportedly laughed off Cass’ track.
“That had 2 b a warm up! Lol,” Meek tweeted November 15th. (Meek Mill’s Twitter)
“@MeekMill I f*ck with you on some real sh*t, but Cassidy went in on that diss “Diary Of A Hustla”.,” Twitter user @SamDhaillest tweeted in response to Meek.
“RT @MeekMill That had 2 b a warm up! Lol — what u got then??? We waiting for the response homes,” Twitter user @DJCrazyC tweeted in response to Meek.
On Cass’ new record, he takes multiple jabs but never mentions the Maybach Music Group rapper’s name.
Now, Cassidy has taken the beef to wax, releasing a diss track titled “The Diary of a Hustla.” On the song, he claims that Meek lives a lifestyle opposite of what he portrays and adds in a few low blows. “Don’t believe this n*gga hustlin’, this n*gga bluffin’ / Look him in his eyes, the only time he cookin’ pies is in the kitchen oven,” he raps. “His fake a** better break fast before he get his food ate like an Egg McMuffin / He ain’t the only n*gga f*ckin’ that chick he cuffin.” (HHDX)
