Cassidy A Suspect In Philadelphia Murder Case

Five years after being released from prison on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, Cassidy has been named as a suspect in a murder case. North Jersey reported that he was arrested yesterday morning in Hackensack, N.J., on a parole violation. And a Hacksensack police officer told the news site that Cassidy is "also a suspect in a murder and two attempted murders in Philadelphia."


In March 2005, Cassidy was thrust even further into the mainstream with the release of his most successful single to date, the Jay-Z-sampling "I'm a Hustla." But his career hit a serious roadblock in the ensuing months when the Philadelphia rapper was wanted on charges of murder, attempted murder, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault, conspiracy and weapons possession.


Cassidy turned himself in to the authorities in June of that year. He would be convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for which he served eight months in prison. He was released in March 2006.

Cass was probably more mainstream with that crap song with R.Kelly he had. I think he had another r&b-ish single off that first album. just sayin'

Lulz, you're probably right. I just remember hearing "I'm a Hustla" more. Either way, his career died at that point.

are u from nyc andrew martin? i remember that song was huge hear, like it blew up the radio and it seemed he made a video mad late for it. I was kinda surprised it didnt blow up all over the way it did here, but maybe it did.

on a side note, I think Cassidy thinks we're friends. I've seen him at a few industry events and he always comes up to me and give me dap and asks how I'm doing. Note, I had never met him before in my life. Maybe all asians do look alike.

Nah, I'm not from NYC.

But like I said, daprefixhater and you are probably right about "Hotel."

Wait, Dipseth is an Asian? And he hangs with Cassidy? He must be Jeff Chang (or that asian dude from Egotrip) in real life.
