CASSIDY SPEAKS OUT ABOUT NOT GUILTY CHARGES
FULL SURFACE/J RECORDS ANNOUNCE PLANS TO READY NEW ALBUM
NEW SINGLE “CASSIDY (THE ANTHEM)” TO HIT STORES FEBRUARY 28 (New York, NY – February 1, 2006)
Full Surface/J Records is ferventlygearing up for the return of Cassidy to the hip-hop forefront with theFebruary 28 commercial 12-inch release of the much-talked about single”Cassidy (The Anthem),” a song previously recorded but not featured onCassidy’s sophomore album I’m A Hustla.
“Cassidy (The Anthem)” will also be available as a master ringtone via all carriers on January 31,while the digital single will be available for download on February 14. Currently serving the rest of his term and looking forward to a release within the next two to three months, Cassidy provided the following statement regarding the recent turn of events via his defense attorney, Fortunato Perri:
“While I am pleased that I was cleared of the murder charges, my satisfaction is not long-lasting, because of the death of someone who I considered to be my friend, Des Hawkins. And while I am eager to resume my career as a recording artist, writer and performer, I am also eager to be reunited with my family, friends, and fans. I too share the important message stated in court by Des’s dad, who urged all parents to love their children, and to be there for them. As the father of a young child myself, spending much time on the road and in the studio, away from home, I am relieved that I will soon be home for family and my career.”
Upon his release, Cassidy will head back into the studio with producer-extraordinaire and CEO of Full Surface Records, Swizz Beatz, to record what is destined to be one of the most poignant recordings of Cassidy’s burgeoning career.
“I’d like to first thank radio and all of his fans for their love and support during this time, and let everyone know that when Cassidy gets out, do not expect us to promote this situation as a cocky and violent situation, but as a blessed situation,” says Swizz Beatz. “Cass will continue to make great music, but in a positive way, educating the youth that violence is never the answer. We’ll do the rest of the talking with the music.”
“Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” is set to hit the big screen!! The monumental hip-hop concert, staged in Brooklyn featured music from Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Dead Prez, Jill Scott, The Roots, and the first reunion performance by The Fugees.
