The Thursday HIT (Honored In Time): 11 Minute Freestyle - Cassidy
The world knows Cass for songs like Hotel and Get No Better; the streets love him for moments like this. I grew up in an era where if you were claiming to be NICE, you had to go air several beats at a radio station and let us hear something.
I first heard this on a mixtape that I copped at a check cashing spot by my high school for about $10. Yes, you had to actually go walk and buy mixtapes at one point. I use to look for certain names on a tape, such as JR Writer, Lloyd Banks, and Cassidy. If they were on the tape I didn't care who else was featured, I HAD to have it.
Cassidy is a legend when it comes to wordplay and this is one of my favorite 11 minutes in rap history, period. Enjoy.
