Cassidy recently told MTV News that the feud wasn't personal. "It's not personal beef. I don't wanna see anything happen to him or anybody around him," Cassidy explained. "I'm just competitive and I take my music seriously. At first I was gonna leave it alone. I thought he wanted to battle me, like he was calling me out, but when I found out he wasn't, I left it alone — until he started tweeting certain things about me and being disrespectful."
"I didn't wanna make it a real beef or anything like that," he added. "I felt like if we had anything to say to each other, we could put it in a rap battle and prove to the streets who's really the best, who really run the city that we're both from and who's qualified to be talking crazy. That's all it was about."
