Cassidy Agrees To Battle Meek Mill

Cassidy says he'd battle Meek Mill if the money is right.

It's been a while since there was a high-profile Rap battle, but fans may get their chance to see one soon.

In response to Meek Mill's offer to battle Cassidy or Murda Mook, Cassidy called into Philadelphia's Hot 107.9 to discuss the prospect of battling the fellow Philly emcee.

"Well, you know, that's what I do, man. I mean, I'm cut from that cloth. I started off with battling so I'm into that but ever since I got a deal and started getting money up in this industry, it wasn't really beneficial for me to battle especially with a bunch of those dudes that are battling all the time," explained Cassidy."I know I'ma bite they head off but it's like, really, what am I going to get out of it?"

Cassidy explained that Meek's status made the proposition a good one for Cass. "Meek got that wave right now, he a household name, bigging him up -- we definitely can get a nice crowd, get some crazy sponsors and get some chicken up. So it'll be beneficial for me to do something like that."

    My money would be on Cass, Meek has never been lyrical

    This battle will never happen. It's like Whole Foods vs fast food. Some of ya 90s babies are killing me with comparing today's "artists" to legends like Pac. So shameful. Don't get me wrong, if these "artists" had even a small of real skill, I could see y'alls point. The problem is there's very few out & y'all ain't seeing them. Y'all too busy picking sides, rather than listen to the lyrics. I feel for y'all because there's no substance or genuine talent for your generation to really ride for. It's all about smash,blow,ball, & imitate. That's it. But how many MEDIOCRE ways do you need to hear mofos spit about getting what you ain't got but they leasing? SMH

    I think cassidy will win.But Meek mill might do something who no???Would like to see CASSIDY VS BEANS.I THINK BEANS WOULD WIN!!!

  • Milehighkid303

    Cass would EAT this man alive, Cass from that era where you had to go to CYPHERS to get cred. Must we forget the intro to his first album......dude absolutely took fire to the paper. He don't play on the lyrical tip.....

  • Kevo

    Saying Pac wasnt gangsta because he was well spoken is like calling Malcolm X a choir boy. Real niggas can start a revolution. That's what Pac was talkin about. These so call street niggas today are all talk no. selling drugs and making money dont make you real.

    cassidy fell off years ago

    • hm

      No he didn't. You prolly havent heard any of his recent music and freestyles or youre trollin. Cass not on that mainstream shit, but he def aint fall off lyrically

  • masimbamapfumo

    cassidy show em who's the king of rap battles

  • JJ

    UPDATE!!! Meek backed out! He said I'm only gonna battle rappers that are poppin. In other words he only wants to battle mainstream rappers (who quite frankly cant rap to save their lives, let alone battle)

    • me

      kendric would murder cas

    • Anonymous

      Cassidy is well known and was once mainstream, he could kill meek. Eminem could kill meek, K. Dot can freestyle really good, i bet he could take meek, nas could take meek, gibbs can freestyle, i bet he could beat meek. Shit Stalley could beat meek mill lol

    • Anonymous

      it makes sense because he is not in the same category as any of the major battle mc's out there. smoke and mirrors from meek.

  • Hoodgrown Magazine

    @dude ur funny: Don't cosign a nigga who hasn't really made any kind of real point.. makes you look like a dick rider.

  • BIRDMAN

    why is it so hard to fathom Lil Wayne signing 2pac to Young Money records. He already has the biggest and best names in the industry under him running the game. And what does Wayne kissing other men have to do with his music? Pac was a damn background dancer before he made it big...with a parted flat top Ever seen the video of him when he was like 18? Completely different. Wasn't a "thug" or "gangster", and goin on and on about how he respects women, then all of a sudden he "don't love dem hoes". He used super proper and formal speech and had a quire boy vibe to him(he used proper speech in interviews when he was older but not to that degree) So how is he different from Wayne? Wayne has a much better flow as well...just sayin

    • hoodgrown fagazine milkman

      hoodgrown sound like an angry old black man. Move to the side old man and let th youngings do there thing you hater. For your information before pac died he was planninig on doing work with master p which would lead to him meeting birdman and wayne and with birdmans swagger and elegeance in the boardroom pac would of fell for him like he did suge. lil wayne the greatest rapper ever period..... anyone 30 years and older wanna hate because they think biggie or pac cmon get outta here, look at numbers, longevity, swag, style, crossing boundaries, having best crew out ymcb untouchable. hoodgrown your a grown ass man that needs to respect true artist like cheef keef who is a genius with words, have you even listened to him speak, everyone Vote for romney

    • Anonymous

      I agree with all of your points on Pac. I did see that interview and he was nothing like he ended up being near the end. His whole demeanor was different. However, Wayne does not have a better flow that Pac. Wayne's flow can be nice, but not better than Pac.

    • YEBO

      LOL 2PAC BALLERINA GAY ASS RAPPER AIN'T NO GANGSTA. HE'S ONLY CABABLE OF SHOOTING GODDAMN COPS, LIL WAYNE MURDERED EVERYBODY ON EVERYBODY'S TRACK, WHO IS TUPAC, ANYWAY.

    • Hoodgrown Magazine

      BIRDMAN's comment shows just how little you know about ANYTHING. 1. Pac would have never signed to Young Money. He would be about 40 now anyway so there would have been nothing "YOUNG" about him. 2. What the hell does his hair style have to do with anything? THat was the STYLE OF THE TIMES just like most you dudes where gay ass looking skinny jeans. 3. Him kissing a man has nothing to do with his music.. just his credibility. No other rapper would have gotten away with kissing a man and still had a career. Oh yeah though.. this is the sagging skinny jean generation so ya'll niggas worship men that dress more like women and have feminine characteristics. Spandex? That's what Bloods rock? 4. Yes and the nigga man songs respecting WOMEN and dissing HOES? What are you too dumb to know the difference? WHat category would you put your MOMS in? 5. Because a nigga knows how to speak he can't be gangster? Really? No one your generation stays losing because you niggas are idiots. That explains why the music is so dumbed down now because you niggas can't speak (Chief Keef interviews?), and can barely write. The most dangerous black man is an educated one.. not an ignorant one. 6. Tupac really let that thing loose shooting two police officers and got OFF... THAT by itself makes him more gangster that Lil Wayne will ever pretend to be. THAT'S HOW HE'S DIFFERENT THAN LITTLE WAYNE IDIOT!

    • dude ur funny

      LMAO.....how fucked up, you made all these hip hop groupies look

  • Biggccid

    I ain't that sure that cassidy will win! Because Meek Mill was a battle rapper too!

    • Anonymous

      @hoodgrown, What does Pac's age have to do with him signing to Young Money? Isn't Busta signed to the label? Doesn't matter about age. Some rappers would sign to a young label due to the fact that it might have some buzz and to attract a younger audience.

  • The problem Vs. The Hustla

    Cassidy's wining!

  • Heavy Chevy

    Just like a fistfight between MCs with too much to lose, it probably ain't gonna go down. I remember back in the day Biggie said he would battle for money...and that he would tear that ass up.

  • unknown

    RICK ROSS WOULD PROBABLY PAY CASSIDY TO LOSE THE BATTLE.

  • inCEST

    CROOKED I or any Slaughterhouse MC would crush both MEEK AND CASSIDY ASSES....

    • YEBO

      THE ONLY THING SLAUGHTERHOUSE EVER CRUSHED ARE THEIR WANNABE CAREERS. HOW WOULD CROOKED I BE ABLE TO BATTLE ANYBODY, HE IS 248435468 YEARS IN THE GAME AND STILL HAS NO SOLO ALBUM.

  • Daniel Beaulieu

    Honestly, you think someone's bonn give these guys $100 grrr to spit three 2-minute rounds of premeditated shit...? If so, I have 500,000 Jae Millz mixtapes I'd like to sell you... Morons.

  • Daniel Beaulieu

    Stupidest conversation ever... Do you realize these guys both want $100 grrr win, lose, or draw...? If you think these guys are gonna get $200,000 for a battle, forget rap, you don't understand what the american dollar is worth. It's a fucking rap battle, not an AFC playoff game...

    Meek Mill can make records, he cant balltle rap to basic, Cassidy could never really blow up much as Meek Mill because be dont make records hes a battle rapper the best metaphors , Cassidy all day son,,

    • Anon

      Cassidy can still make nice tracks but he lost all of his hype and buzz after his murder case and after that he had a car accident and caught amnesia and his rhymes weren't that great for a little while, then Ruff Ryders wasn't really doin shit either. Cass had a promising future before all the bullshit, but now he just can't recover, atleast mainstream wise. Niggas who really listen to hip hop know cass is back to his a game, he shows it in his freestyles and his mixtapes

    meek mill is a street cat he would murder him on and off the mic bruh!

  • ETK

    I hope to God this happens. know why? cause even though this would be orchestrated, it'd be a nice break from all this stupid bitch ass Twitter beefing that rappers got goin on nowadays. have two recognizable emcees engage in a rap battle, and with enough hype more rappers might consider doin it. and that's where you could get the real shit. not tryna be too optimistic about it, but it'd be much better than seeing some punk ass sucka like Shyne throwin words on Twitter like he somebody important. take this shit back to the streets man.

  • smdh weak mill

    weak mill backed the f out. excuses are so weak i can understand he scared to battle cass. cass just make song mention his name a line or two. no subliminals straight in weak's face.

    A rapper with a major record deal shouldn't need to battle. It's beneath him.

    that a 'dude', not dud

  • carlos

    Cass would only battle a dud (artist) in the same bracket as him self, not no street cat cos he's be getting all that' you on the tour bus while Im grindin out here' and so on..Mills lives the same life so they cant pull that 1 on each other, it would be to raw for Cass to battle street battlers

    • lol

      Okay then you already know a lame line like "you on the tour bus while Im grindin out here" isnt go work. Cass would come up with some slick shit talkin bout he he ballin from rappin and pushin crack and he'll still clap a nigga

    • carlos

      I know Cass can spit...this raw and all off the top http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpdKGaETgvg

    • lol

      Obviously you haven't heard Cass spit. Cass always spittin about drugs and guns and he roll with real niggas. Nobody can use that "you on the tour bus while Im grindin out here" cause the fact is the nigga been there done that, and he might still be doin it from time to time. Only reason cass wouldn't face a street dude is because of money.

    Meek Mill may be a good rapper but Cassidy is better and it would not be beneficial at all for Meek Mill at this point in his career. Why would he start this in the first place? Or did someone bate him because I do not know.

      I can't find anywhere where meek flat out said he wanted to battle cass or murda mook. On the interview vid meek said he would like to see mook and cass battle, but hiphopdx put the headline as meek wants to battle cass or mook and misconstrued his words. Even meek said he cant really see cass losin a battle
