Cassidy Discusses Relationship With Religion, Recording EP With Christian Pastor

Cassidy opens up about his relationship with religion and his upcoming EP with a Philadelphia pastor.

With the dust all but settled on his beef with Meek Mill, Philadelphia emcee Cassidy opens up about his upcoming EP with a local Christian pastor.

In a recent interview with the Christian Post, Cassidy discussed his forthcoming EP with Philadelphia-based Pastor Jomo K. Johnson. He explained that the project will focus on his relationship with Christianity and how his legal trials helped him develop a greater appreciation for religion.

"When I came from jail and recovered from the accident I definitely felt obligated to talk about my relationship with God because that's the only way that I could make it through those situations that I was in," he said. "That's why I did the album B.A.R.S and did a lot of songs like 'Done 4 Me' and 'Leanin' on the Lord' with Angie Stone...I just wanted to show people that you can come from the streets, you can be around a lot of different things but still have a relationship with God and be an artist and talk about it...I feel as though I can bring a lot more people that wouldn't normally listen to gospel music or really be concerned with the lord to spread the word. I know that's what the lord wants you to do. That's pretty much the direction that I'm going in [with my EP with Pastor Jomo K. Johnson]."

He added, "Even if I only get one person to get in the church or get saved or develop their relationship with God, it was worth it and more important than anything else that music will bring to me. That's the reason that I'm in the lane that I'm in and do what I do."

Like Cassidy, Pastor Jomo K. Johnson made headlines for feuding with Meek Mill over the alleged sacrilegious message of his song "Amen." Although the EP has yet to receive a release date, the proceeds from the project will be given to charity.

    I agree that this seems like Cass trying to stay in the spotlight since Meek to bitch to respond. I understand you gotta do what you gotta do. Agreed that you cant really hate if its going to be a positive message, just crazy to me that so many people still believe in these fairy tales. Grow up and see the world for what it is.

      lol! I swear, it is funny to me too...it is awkward that someone like Cass don't know the truth that their is no man in the sky.

      cassidy expirienced a near-death expirience, alot of people feel a godly vibe from it an live a life of faith afterwords...im not here to debate if god exists or not, but it still amazes me how people dont believe someone created everything...some liquid from ur balls makes a human, what makes ur balls make that liquid? who told them to work like that, shit aint an accident...believe it or not alot of scientists believe in god, they believe the universe cud be much uglier, people cud look like reptiles an galaxies cud be dark an scary,instead we have beautiful perfect woman and magical lookin galaxies, we think thoughts an shit, shit aint no accident...big bang theory is prolly tru,but god made it happen...i dont believe in da bible, but i believe an almighty creator exists
