Following last week’s declaration by Maybach Music rapper Meek Mill that he wanted to revive the rap battle game and would love to go up against Cassidy or Murda Mook, Cassidy has stepped up to accept the challenge.
Cassidy, who got his early fame from rap battling said, “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, I know I’ma bite they head off but it’s like, really, what am I going to get out of it? … 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.”
Meek Mill, who wants to take battling to a whole new level said “…you might be battling for a little 40 or 50 grand because I’m the one that took the chance to open the door. You gotta have a hundred [thousand dolloars] or better. I can’t do it for free… when I battle, it ain’t going to be 5,000, it’s going to be 20,000 people or better. I ain’t doing no home court advantages…”
The battle is definitely bound to be mad, after Cassidy christened himself as the Floyd Mayweather Jnr of rap battling last year.
