Perhaps Cassidy should revisit the following age-old adage: Actions speak louder than words. After assuring MTV News that his beef with Meek Mill wasn’t personal and that he didn’t want anything to happen to the MMG spitter, Cassidy, born Barry Adrian Reese, recently appeared in a video flanked by known North Carolina Gangster Disciple Shorty Mac, who proceeded to lob threats towards the entire MMG camp while Cass looked on with approval.
“Bang bang, Folk Gang! Anywhere in North Carolina, we on yo’ ass,” Mac said menacingly. “We pushin’ up on yo’ bumper, my ni–a. Cassidy good, bring yo’ ass through here watch what happen to you. Cancel the rest of your tour, it’s all good, bring your ass through here.”
“Him getting with another team, getting a little bit of paper. That shit be going to young ni—s heads,” explained Cassidy. “Ni–as who ain’t never had nothing and then they get a bunch of shit, they don’t know how to deal with it. I don’t have a problem with that part, but when he started disrespecting me saying I wasn’t a lyricist I was like ‘I’m a show this ni–a what I really do.’”
After all the threats were aired out, Cass did mention that he would be getting back into the studio with Swizz Beatz. The duo is best known for collaborating on his biggest single to date, “I’m a Hustla.”
“The separation between me and Swizz was I was young,” Cass explained about why he and Swizz initially went separate ways. “I was young gettin’ money hot headed straight from the street so I used to act like that all the time Swizz got a lot going for himself so it was kinda hard for him to deal with but that was years ago. I’m in a different state of mind. I got kids of my own, I got family, I’m in a whole different bag right now so the fact that I’m a different person, he gon be able to understand that and we gon be able to get back together and make music.”
