Video After The Jump
Philly rapper Ar-Ab recently made a video discussing the Cassidy Vs. Meek Mill beef. At the time he said Cass wasn't a street dude, while Meek was. He also accused Cass of not helping him out financially when he was down with Larsiny Family.
Ar sat down with VladTV to clarify some of the things he said in the video.
The OBH Records artist said that both Cass and Meek are his friends and he introduced them to each other several years ago in an attempt to help out both of their careers. At the time Meek's buzz was heavy in Philly, but he wasn't signed yet and according to Ar, Philly wasn't really feeling Cass at the time.
Ar says the tension between the two started to build after Meek got signed to MMG. Cass felt like he helped Meek out by featuring him on some of his songs early in his career and wanted Meek to return the favor. Meek didn't feel like Cass had helped him and declined.
When asked who he thought was winning the current battle between the two rappers, Ar picked Meek.
"In my opinion, I like Meek's song [Repo] better," Ar told Vlad. "Cass' song [R.A.I.D.] was hot. But it's the beat that Meek used. That sh*t was crazy and he was saying some hood sh*t and I love that hood, gangster sh*t he was talking. Cass sh*t was more lyrics. That's cool and all but I relate to the gangster sh*t a little better."
