Cassidy Announces Album Title, Reveals Details

cassidy.jpgPhilly rapper Cassidy recently announced the title of his third solo LP to and revealed some details about what fans can expect from the project. Due out September 18 through Swizz Beatz Full Surface Records, the album will be called The Barry Adrien Reese Story (B.A.R.S.), and features appearances from Beanie Sigel, Fabolous and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Cass, who over the past two years has survived a near fatal car accident and spent a year in jail on an involuntary manslaughter charge, cites his faith in God as a strong influence on the record. “When I was going through problems, from going to jail to the accident, even though I had money, I had power, respect and friends, no one showed up and the only thing that helped me was my faith,” the rapper told “I was so worried about what lawyer I was going to hire and what judge will handle my case, but when I read the scripture, which says it’s better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man, I knew I was going to win and get through it with the Lord on my side.” In addition to Full Surface head Swizz Beatz, B.A.R.S. will also feature production from Scott Storch, Neo Da Matrix, Timbaland and Cool and Dre. The self-proclaimed Problem is also set to release a new mixtape with DJ Green Lantern on July 7 that will feature the first street single from B.A.R.S. and seven exclusive songs.
