He rap battled a local friend on the phili radio station 103.9, and was crowned champion. After that, he would win battles weekly. The 103.9 host Cipher Zulu signed him with a deal for a few songs and a demo, but did not ammount to anything other then studio expeirence.
One year later he was in a barber shop with swizz beats father, and he wanted cassidy to rap for him.
He was only 16 years old at this time, a junior in highschool, but the next thing he knew he was traveling to new york with Shizz Lansky and Cal Akbar and were signed in a group called the Ruff Ryders.
After that Swizz beats created songs with cassidy, and they have created about 25 songs together now. Swizz helped him rap to beats better, but cassidy had made his rep by battling, but he learned a better sense to rhyme and beats.

Cassidy - Innocent man
"I do the damn thing
Bezzel and the band bling
Sling grams spend 10 grand on a damn ring
I run philly, I ain't tryin be the damn king
But the damn thing can get pulled like a hamstring
I use to hang with these niggas from my hood mane
Yea I showed them the world I took them out the hood mane
Yea it cost some cahnge but it's all good mane
Cause I got money to burn like pack woods mane
And we was smoking, joking and poppin bottles
Getting open storking poking and poppin modles
I was hoping that they could get paper with me
But when I start gettin cake they start hating on me
They showed up to the crib that my mother was at, my son baby mother and my brother was at
And the was straped acting tuff and started busting the gak
And to protect my family I start busting it back... bllllllaaaaakkk"
"They tried to give me the death penalty or life witout the possibility of porole
But thanks to god I'm here now
And I wanna say rest in peace to desmond hawkins and I wanna give respects out to his family cause they didn't have nothing to do with it I apologize but you really can't knock me for riding for my famliy cause you would do the same... fa real"
