Everyone knows that Philly has one of the best battle rap scenes in the nation. One of the biggest rappers in the nation right now, Meek Mill, recently did an interview with our homie, journalist Shaheem Reid, where he talks about the art of battling and he goes into his rap battle background. Meek also mentions that he would want $100,000 to step back into the battle scene (which was reportedly already set to take place against battle rapper, DNA). You can check out the interview below:
While answering a question regarding who Meek Mill would like to see battle each other, Meek said he would like to see Cassidy and Murda Mook battle. But some media outlets interpreted his answer wrong and credited him as saying that he would want to battle either Cassidy or Murda Mook.
Cassidy heard about the rumors, too, and over the weekend, he jumped on the radio with Hot 107.9 and accepted the offer to battle Meek Mill. Check out what he said below:
"If it came down to do a battle thing, I would love to do that. Cause it'll be beneficial. I would get some credibility for biting somebody head off, and I'd get a nice little check out of it."
Cassidy seemed to have to whole fight planned out, from getting it on Pay-Per-View to getting sponsors to come in and pay that "chicken." Apparently that's a new slang phrase out of Philly meaning money.
"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."
Did Cassidy imply that he would bite Meek's head off in a battle? Meek heard Cassidy loud and clear and took to his Twitter to let Cassidy know he has to get his weight up before he can step into a battle with him.
Well, it looks like those battle plans are on hold for now. I for one would love to see this battle go down, but Meek is right - he has nothing to prove and is busy getting "arena" tour money. Maybe Swizzy can link back up with Cassidy and those two could cook up another few hits. I always liked their musical chemistry.
You can listen to Cassidy's radio interview below.
But wait! Where does that leave DNA in this whole battle drama? The word in them battle streets is that Meek was set to get straight slaughtered by DNA, one of the best on the circuit right now.
So did Meek wise up and sweep that DNA challenge under the table? We're not sure, but this battle stuff is getting interesting...
