Hmm, I don’t think it was too smart spending half the video talking about another man’s album. Damn dude is getting cocky, talking a little too much.
cassidy thinks its another 50 vs kanye type battle, cassidy’s album material so far is just alright.
Cass is actually giving Jay props more than anything but I still think he’ll do Swizzy #’s.
hes giving hove props..
he speakin da truth tho
I fuck wit dude…but his shit bout to flop
its just aiight cuz jay is held to such high standards
even just aiight is still better than most others
I got Love For Cassidy….but i kinda hesitated today when i bought Hov shit from best buy and i seen cassidy shit there too for $9.99 and im like Hmmm…I had to think hard….but after seeing this interview and hearing his track “Innocent” i just MIGHT cop im still thinkin but the reason why he aint he gon sale is because it’s about hype and buzz now a days let’s face it…Drink and my two step is an okay single but he needed to come back SUPER!! I feel people kiinda turn they ear off to cassidy after he got locked up and all that it’s weird but i dont kno…He even drop a mixtape like 4 months ago and nobody was on it ….i aint hear niggaz talkin like yo dat new cass is fire..and he was goin in on dat shit dat “get retarded freestyle was crazy!” ballin freestlye!…And dat shit on da mike jones beat!….it’s like niggaz aint fuckin wit ’em no more….and honestly i heard some his snippets and it sound like the same cass..talkin out clappin shit and how he beat his case and how he grind all the time….like he aint really supa dupa star material he could spit but he dont appeal to nobody….I bought hte last two cassidy cd’s real copy
s but i dont kno….And he need to stop talkin bout “Yo i jus beat a case and i got my live save and dis and dat” cuz he jus running wit dat in every interview and everytime you hear him now…..It’s like Dawg you aint the only one that had problems…everybody been thru shit too…so it’s cool that ya live got saved and all that but my life got saved too doggy and if i go around bragging dat i got popped and shit…niggaz dont wanna hear dat shit…mayb da bitches but to the niggaz dat dont matter…the reason why 50 cent was successful is b/c gettin shot 9 times is SERIOUS! plus he was killin da streets for a minute and Fuck it Scratch the example cuz he blew because of eminem and dr.dre so ex that but basically cassidy needed to be more complex …..talk about some next shit..I like “innocent” because that track explains what really happened wit duke coming to his crib and how he caught dat whole case shit but what’s next? lemme hear some other stories…lemme hear some hotter hooks dawg…..some anthems….swizz shoulda blessed him wwit hotter beats too…i can’t really call it…i cant believe i copped Hell relll shit and i hesitated in copping cassidy….i dont kno…..And he talkin bout Hov too..yea We all kno “BLue Magic” is jus alrite but that American gangsta Album is hot…He not saying no off da wall shit but jus how ‘s it orchestrated and the lil stories and jus how it’s put together…and the songs is hot….why you thinnk blue magic is listed as a bonus track Hov knew what he was doin when he dropped blue magic as a single…Cass jus need to ask hov to guide ’em into makin a fuckin album….There’s no question Cassidy Could spit his ass off He’s like the only young nigga in da game that’s banana’s lyrically but making an actual likable SONG takes a lot Bro…I dont think he understands that! but he got punchlines for days and lyrics for days we all kno he betta then lil wayne and niggaz like juelz santana and mayB even whoever else u wanna compare him to but at the end of the day your selling music that people gotta come out they pockets for…and jus like anybody that buys anything in this world we wanna make sure we gettin our money’s worth because it doesnt come easy…Yea we heard Jay-z Story a million times…but it always sounds hot! He dont gotta emphasize it too much he jus smooth wit it…and gives us a lil intellect..and jus the smarter…logical side of lookin at the streets…not jus the first instinct ignorant side…..and that’s waht cassidy does…”I’ll Clap You” “Take Your Life” Shit like that how many millions of times we heard rappers rap like this Switch it up..or say it intricately or different or some shit…bring sumthin new to the game! Mayb that’s what i’ll do!
hes right about sayin that the latest hova stuff doesnt give you that feelin it does earlier… i feel the same way, when i heard the old jay z stuff the first time i went crazy about it, now its alright, like he said…
I like cass but you make people that like you not like you saying dumb ass shit like that . he must of learn that in jail . THE ART OF DISSING AND APPOLIGIZING AT THE SAMETIME . Hov shouldnt drop on the same day as you ??? c’mon cass you not kanye and my drink and my two step isnt in the club or lean back or some sort of monster hit . A lot of these young rappers are talented but they make you lose respect for them cause there always putting there foot in there mouth . Angie had to let him know @ 2:07 see this is were you get yourself in trouble cass
i have jay-z album and cassidy .and album yo cassidy talking about some real shyt son.
Let’s be for real Hov is never going to have the Magic he had before he retired. But he still makes good music to me. Cassidy is a good rapper but he hasn’t put out any classics. I’m tired of cats dissin Hov when he was alot of these cats idol. American Gangster is better than alot of shit I heard this year. If I can get a downgraded Hova I’ll take it. American Gangster > Curtis.
Cassidy prolly has a hard album but his voice sounds annoying as hell. But yeah, I agree with cass, Jay-Z doesn’t go hard like he used to anymore, and thats sad.
from the songs i have heard so far the only one poppin is blue magic his album i think will just be mediocre at best
The truth is if Jay wants to go as hard as he used to all he has to do is have songs where he packs so much into his lyrics that we can’t possibly understand what he’s talking about till you hear the song 10 times. Even he said during an interview before performing that his reasonable doubt songs are so lyrical that he had to learn the words all over again, but thats what we crave, smart, intelligent, art.
this nigga gittin wacker and wacker to me
These young cats today just talk the talk it is easy to say Jay ain’t made another Reasonable or Blueprint so he sucks. That is bullshit he has made American Gangster ffs so judge the album for what it is and over time and not just in one week.
One thing I will agree with Cassidy on is he been to jail and he still manage to get an album out on point when you got all these rappers complaining and haven’t released shit you gotta question there motives.
People will blame labels but it is a simple fact you gotta give the labels what they want for them to support your project they aint gon spend any time or money promoting an artist that the label feel is not giving them what they asked for. The rappers need to start taking there music more serious and not just think about the money cus they may sign to the label just cus the contract looks good but they must consider, is the label gonna support the type of music I be putting out, or do they want me to change my whole style just to suit them.
cass album is his whackest yet…..
tell cass to dedicate some of his sales to desmine hawkins family.
I love hov’s album, CLASSIC! Say hello is my shit!
YO! when I checked out the Hot97 clip, all I saw was cassidy’s head gassin up on some cocky shit!!
how you gonna go on air and just wramble like that?
I mean what possision is YOU in n!gg@? talking all that shit..
FACT: cassidy does not have a fan base like Hov, so how is he gonna face of with a man who is light years beyond him (giving him props and dissin’ him) at the same time!!!!! Please
YEAH YOU GO CASSIDY, KEEP TALKING ABOUT HOV
Jay got this.
Cassidy’s album > Jay-z album hands down! Jay-z is over rated and plus that his cd is really boring.
People need to stop looking for Jay to match his “greatest”. As long as Jay’s still giving us “great” music, what he achieved in the past is just that – the past. Respect that he’s still able to get in there with whomever is hot at the moment and still “show them how to do this son!” Regardless of where you want to place Jay on your list, he’s still the hottest to touch the mike, he’s still the most interesting rapper out and he’s still on top of his game.
AMERICAN GANGSTER IS A CLASSIC. COP HOV AND HELP REGAIN SOME OF OUR BLACK HISTORY – ELVIS STOLE ALL BLACK MUSIC AND NOW HOV CAN TIE FOR THE #1 ALBUMS WITH ELVIS WITH AMERICAN GANGSTER. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND – EVENTUALLY.
BUT HOV’S SHIT IS CLASSIC LYRICS.
damn…yall niggaz on Jay’s dick too much!!!
American Gangster is fuckin wack lmao!!! dont get it twisted..I fuck witt Jay.
but B.A.R.S > American Gangster
how the fuck this dude gonna say hov shit aint hot. this nigga is crazy. he must have not heard the album to say some dumb shit like that. American Gangster has the critics saying its a classic, how the fuck are you going to down play that. cass is on drugs or something. that wack ass single that cass got out is garbage.
Cass album is a classic.All the reviews on the album b.a.r.s. was not the official tracklisting.This album u can play all the way through without skipping a track.
LIL WAYNE BEST RAPPER ALIVE
he is kinda sendin mixed messages. he sayin he ain’t competing but already givin honest opinions about hov and sayin it’s not smart to drop? who is you? dude still ain’t got enough of a track record to give him respect like that. I’d give it to Fabolous before him. at least Fabolous had more albums out and he still aint talkin like how Cassidy talkin.he only on his third album. cmon man.which side of the fence is you on. pick one
2 word for cassidy…..no competition.
much respect for cassidy i hope the best for his project
ima actually cop it when i goto cop that jayz lol
honestly the way young nba rookies have to take media training classes and how to carry yourself to maximize profit training or sumthing. these lil young niggas is fuckin shit up. they can talk but everybody is too god damn cocky witout accomplishing shit. his other singles like “hotel ft. r.kelly” and “i’m a hustla (using jay sample)” were wayyyyy bigger than this “drink and 2step” shit. and he didnt do shit wit those singles.
the remix wit kanye, he says he saved hiphop or sum shit like that. how? when? where? get the fuck outta here. niggas can just talk and not prove, that got the game all fucked up. if they would just humble themselves a lil bit until they’ve accomplished sumthin then i would fuck wit them. they like students tryin to eat in the teachers lounge, na ya’ll lil niggas belong in the cafeteria, u got more learning to do
i dont care, i want both albums, downloaded, i might buy cass cause he needs the paper more. american gangster is just alright to some people, hell he has an opinion just like us. thats his opinion.
#7.MarXaMiLLy, chill on that sh*t b… for real
ON SOME REAL…THAT WAS REALTALK from CASS. Although he won’t do much.
DIS NIGGA TALKING ALL DIS BULLSHIT IN HIS RAPS AN IN DIS INTERVEW HE ACTING LIKE AH REAL BITCH BOY AN DIS CHUMP NOT CUT LIKE DAT I KNOW!
Cassidy got skills, but his sh*t still gonna flop and flop HARD…
cass album = garbage. he got the punchlines but there aint much hits on the album (cept my drink n my 2 step)
id rather listen to hov’s album
and lemme say another thing. the kanye vs 50 thing got amped cus they actually confronted in front of each other and 50 had made bets about it and was dissin ye and all that. this cass vs jay-z shouldnt be compared to 50 and ye cus it wasnt really amped as it shoulda have. nobody dissed each other or made bets on anything so… im gna smell a flop.
if you had to pick between BARS and American Gangster, That American Gangster is CLASSIC Jay-Z.that album is worth havin if you buy classic material.timeless.Can’t front that’s the only album this whole year that got me all hyped on some rap shit.just bought it yesterday.it got me rejuvenated from all the dumb-down rap albums that came out this year.I got burnt out hearin all that dumb-down shit. I got 50’s and Kanye’s albums. they was dope too. but it ain’t as classic sounding as Jigga’s. true story. It’s that raw and uncut jay-z.
damn dude said hov like 45 times
November 7, 2007
Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella/IDJ album American Gangster, his tribute to the Ridley Scott movie of the same name about legendary Harlem dope dealer Frank Lucas with an Oscar-worthy performance by Denzel Washington, looks like a pretty good shot to take the #1 spot on next week’s HITS Top 50.
According to retailers left around this great country of ours, he’s on track to sell between 400-450k. Judging how the Eagles do in their second week—and they will be performing on ABC’s nationally televised Country Music Awards tonight, so you never know—will determine next week’s #1.
Barry Weiss’ Team Jive continues its hot streak with the new Chris Brown album, Exclusive, with the smash single, “Kiss Kiss,” which appears headed for at the very least the Top Three and maybe even higher with between 300-350k.
The independently distribbed Garth Brooks album Ultimate Hits on Scott Borchetta’s Pearl Records imprint looks like it will do between 200-250k, though the CMAs could boost that number significantly.
Rapper Cassidy’s B.A.R.S. The Barry Adrian Reese Story, his new Full Surface/Ruff Ryders/J album, is on target for 70-80k
Suretone/Geffen’s Angels and Airwaves, the blink-182 spin-off, is looking at 65-75k.
Thanks to the Eagles, the market was up 11% vs last week, down 13% vs same week last year and now down 14.5% year-to-date.
jay-z>>>>>>>cass sorry haters jay is about 2 past elvis as all time #1 cds…bitches its tha roc!!!!!!!!
I agree with him a little but Cassidy’s albums aint so damn hot himself. His best cant fuck with Jay’s best and his lines are fiyah but his albums need alot of work.
thats exactly what ive been saying… american gangsta is a good cd.. but not a classic.. all yall jay dickriders need to stop being bias toward jay… his album has average songs on it.. no classic material..
dolo u name me some classics that been comin out for the past couple of years besides sayin hip hop is dead.and to say people that bump the jay-z albums is bias, u gotta remember he set out a track record album to album that you probably don’t even understand. I gotta say it’s better than all the half ass wack records comin out right now, so the makes his album that good cause of all the wack ass dumb down bullshit comin out right now. there’s so much garbage comin out right now, it’s makes jay-z’s album look twice as better than all this shit.he brought back that sound that hip hop needs right now. at least a break from all this other shit.name me an album better than the new album.you prolly a youngin
that new hova album is the shit
I never really been a Jay Z fan but homie does know how to keep up with the times and cassidy isint even relevent. Ill buy Jay’s album bacause this shit sound like some 1984 shit! I mean dude might sell a couple hundred thou but he all punchlines and boring. Ive never even been to Philly or keep up with their underground but I know they got to have harder husic than cass.
real talk. respek
Yeah that car accident did do some damage
HOV IS ON PACE FOR 400-450K
CASS IS ON PACE FOR 70K-80K
