Leaving J Records and Swizz Beats’ label Full Surface was the first step to the re-emergence of Philly native rapper, Cassidy. On the new album C.A.S.H, The self-proclaimed “hustla” continues along the lines of the streets with bangers like “I’m A G-Boy” features the rapper AR-AB, “Hate me or Love me” and Monsta Muzik.”
Any fans of Cassidy would love the choice of beats and arrangements. “Paper Up” has an old school sample feel to it, while Cass raps with his usual witty style. In efforts to reach his female fans he enlisted Mya, whom he says he was in a relationship with, on “Girl Like Her.” The smooth and mellow “She Addicted” will have the R & B listeners loving the featured singer Nalia Boss on the track. There’s also a track for the weed heads and typical nonchalant music lover “High off Life” features reggae artist Junior Reid and Notch which is accompanied by a laidback beat.
The second single “Drumma Bass” has a bass-filled beat that makes you bop your head and want to two-step. “One Shot” and the catchy hook to “Ahhh Sh*t” are the club bangers and ultimately what makes the album better than his previous ones. He finishes off the album with the wish filled track called “Peace” he says, “We all dream and wish for something that seems impossible, I wish for world peace.” Stepping in the shoes of producer he tops C.A.S.H off with the boastful “Music In My Blood.”
C.A.S.H is filled with catchy hooks, witty lyrics and in his words, “mayhem music” type of beats. This album is for music lovers looking for something other than what is out on the radio or who are looking for something new. As a fan of hip hop I would see myself purchasing the album because of the beats and it is a change from the typical.
