Philadelphia rapper Cassidy wants more than just his flowers. The hip-hop veteran has surprisingly emerged from the rap game shadows to seemingly expose rap crooner Tory Lanez for possibly “stealing” his lyrics for a series of freestyles.
Cassidy Sparks Unnecessary Beef
Cass struck first by lighting up his social media pages with side-by-side footage showing his throwback lyrics getting used in Lanez’s more recent music. The Philly battle rap legend even crowned himself Tory’s fave artist.
“I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS Ain’t no denying that 👀👂🏾 #GoatGang 🐐 Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken 💵 #BARSisBack #DaEnergy ⚡️”
Instead of staying mum or falling back, Lanez stood up to Cassidy and hit up his comments section. Tory acknowledged the bars but credited it to him showing the rap veteran proper respect and pointed out some big facts.
“I guess this is what happens when u try to pay homage ….. the first freestyle I shouted ya name out becuz u did inspire me . The second one I went on YOUR beat . Sh*t is sad how U old n*ggas be mad at the young n*ggas for not showing love then when we do … we get responses like this …. U are one of my favorite rappers Cass ….. what’s the problem ? 🤨”
Cassidy Bars In Tory Lanez Hot 97 Freestyle
This week, Tory pulled through for an epic Hot 97 radio freestyle. Lanez completely let loose some bars in the truest essence of freestyle. His lines ranged from modern day lines to references to music icons like 2Pac and legendary 90’s movie Poetic Justice.
“Bustin’ 2Pac’s out the van like Poetic Justice, last year was last year, on Twitter, ‘Oh he canceled, now I’m back here/Double stash the Rolls-Royce, smothered in cashmere, a mean rookie, I’m seeing p*ssy like it’s a Pap smear, my last chick, that new n*gga d*mn near a dweeb, couldn’t see like a magician with tricks in his sleeve.”
The craziest and most hard-hitting bars featured a direct connection to his publicized July 2020 shooting case involving former flame Megan Thee Stallion. Lanez apologized to rap stars like DaBaby and Roddy Ricch for them losing out on Grammys and BET Awards to Stallion as a result of him being painted the anti-hero and fuel for protecting Black women.
“Shouts go out to ‘SKAT,’ shout-out goes out to DaBaby, Roddy Ricch and Lil Baby, what I’m about to say is going to sound a little crazy, but it’s true so don’t flame me. Y’all all would have got y’all awards if they never framed me.”
Tory Lanez References 2020 Meg Shooting In Remix
A few days ago, Tory appeared on rap star Soulja Boy‘s “Ricky n Morty” remix and also made a reference to last summer’s attack. While he didn’t name-drop Meg, Lanez referenced the only time he would ‘shoot’ a woman.
Uh, you know my name, ho
Only thing I’m shootin’ at a b*tch is game, ho
Yeah, yeah, it’s Tory Lanez, ho
Clean white tee, still’ll hit a stain, though
I just got in with the stick, mhm
DaBaby + Meg Clash Over Tory Lanez
In mid-June 2021, tensions flared between Megan Thee Stallion and her frequent collaborator DaBaby. She took personal offense to him appearing on Lanez’s “SKAT” record and took her issues to social media.
“support me in private and publicly do something different…these industry men are very strange. This situation ain’t no d*mn “beef” and I really wish people would stop down playing it like it’s some internet sh*t for likes and retweets. … justice is slow … as we’ve all seen…back to my good day 💙”
DaBaby attempted to clear his name from any type of drama and stepped up to speak out. Baby also tried to end rumors and speculation about ‘liking’ or even retweeting someone’s remarks about both himself and Lanez getting away with shooting someone and not having to do jail time.
“Baby got enough problems of his own my nigga😂, ion got nooooo reason to inherit the next MF problems.🙅🏾♂️ Y’all chasing a story y’all ain’t gone get. I’m out niggas bidness while still successfully doing business. … Idk what type of Illuminati sh*t Twitter got goin on😂… I ain’t retweet nothing but “Ball If I Want To” promo. I ain’t retweet that silly shit. Then once ppl start tagging me & I saw it and tried to delete it and undo the retweet Twitter didn’t let me.🤔 Type sh*t yall on?”
