by Ben Detrick

A formidable Philadelphia battle rapper and Swizz Beatz protégé, Cassidy badly needs an editor on his fourth studio full-length. A torrent of lazy similes makes C.A.S.H. seem like a book of bar-napkin doodles. "I'm trying to get retarded money like Forrest Gump," Cassidy offers on "One Shot," one of several self-produced tracks that attempt to re-create the festive energy of his 2007 hit "My Drink n' My 2 Step." Later, on "Awww Shit," a snare-lashed joint with repetitive guitar, he claims "I'm fly as a kite" as a hook. On this dismal effort, Cassidy proves he can still flow, but to little effect.
