If there is anyone who knows about Cassidy’s career in the game, it’s Swizz Beatz. The two worked closely when Cass first made a splash on the mainstream Rap market. Through time, their relationship also had ups and downs. Now Swizz is being asked about Cassidy’s latest feud with Meek Mill.
During his interview with Global Grind, Swizz shared his take on the diss and whether or not Meek will respond.
“That’s how he felt. His passion is rapping and battling and I think he said everything that he meant,” Swizz explained, when asked about Cassidy’s “R.A.I.D.” diss track for Meek Mill.
When asked if his reaction was “Oh my God,” Swizz said he’s used to battling. “I’m used to it. I been around battling all my life. It’s a creative sport,” he added. However, he does not think Meek will be replying. “I doubt it,” he said. “I don’t think he’s gonna respond.”
Swizz also spoke on Chief Keef, who was recently sentenced to 60 days for probation violation, and how he has become a part of the gun control conversation.
“I think it’s bigger than him,” he explained. “Chief Keef is just a name people can relate to because he’s in the entertainment business. But, I think the real reason is the youth, period, with nowhere to go, no plans, and they’re just resorting to living however they want to live. You go to a different country and they don’t have no support, no food, it’s the same thing. It’s just that we’re knowing about it more because there’s a celebrity name involved, but I wouldn’t even put that on him. This has been going on for years. They shut down the whole Cabrini–Green a long time ago. This been happening. But the key thing is how is it going to stop happening? Is it arts? Is it music? That’s the thing to figure out.”
