Cassidy sat down for an exclusive interview with VladTV, where he opened up about battling rappers off camera. The Philly emcee says he’s been called to the studio by the likes of Busta Rhymes and Timbaland to battle their artists, including DJ Envy’s artist Coke, as well as Philly’s Most Wanted.
The conversation then turns to his highly anticipated Total Slaughter match against Dizaster, who Cassidy says he didn’t choose to battle. He also addresses comments about saying he’d never battle a non-industry rapper, and explains that the money was right this time around.
Cassidy has said in past interviews that he’s turned down up to $100,000 for a battle, and reveals he was paid close to $250,000 for his Total Slaughter face-off. This is the most money ever made in battle rap, and the “I’m a Hustla” rapper says he feels the amount is on par with what he thinks he deserves.
