8 Disappointing Rap ‘Comebacks’ (pg. 5)
The Rapper: Cassidy
The Return: Like Shyne, Cassidy had to put his career on hold in 2005 when he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault after an incident in Philadelphia. He was released in 2006 and returned to the scene in 2007 to drop his highly-anticipated third album, B.A.R.S. The Barry Adrian Reese Story.
The Reaction: Naturally, no one expected Cass to be the carefree, punchline-driven rapper that he was before the 2005 incident. But on B.A.R.S., he just didn’t seem to have the bars that we had grown to love on his previous two releases, either. But, hey, at least his album wasn’t as wack as Foxy’s!
