      Just as Cassidy was about to blow up the streets were trying to pull him back in. In the last couple of years, Cassidy was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the murder of a 22-year old man in his neighborhood of West Oak Lane in Philly. He served about 15 months and was released in early 2006. But to make matters worse, he was in a near-fatal car accident last year where he suffered a fractured skull and broken bones. The trials and tribulations he’s gone through inspired the content of his new album, “The Barry Adrien Reese Story (B.A.R.S.)”, due out September 18.

      "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," Cassidy 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."

      Cassidy assured that the album isn’t a gospel album, but a street album with production from Swizz Beatz, Neo Da Matrix, Scott Storch, Timbaland and Cool and Dre. To hold fans over until the album drops, he release a Green Lantern-helmed mixtape on July 7 that will feature tracks from the album.
