Cassidy Clears Up Twitter Rant, Says He Never Had Beef With Swizz Beatz
Barry Reese backpedals on statements he made on Twitter about Swizzy not returning his calls.
Back in May, Cassidy took to Twitter to announce that he’d had no communication with his former mentor and producer, Swizz Beatz, in over a year. In a series of tweets, he even accused Swizz of not answering his phone calls, but now Cassidy would like to make it clear that there is no beef between the two.
In an interview with Joy Daily, Cassidy says that it was not his intention to stir up any bad blood. Instead, he saw Twitter as the best way to get in touch with his old friend. “I wasn’t really saying it to Swizz, I just was saying it to the people like my followers and fans, the people that hold me down and was wondering - what is the relationship with you and Swizz like?” he explained. “People was wondering, what’s going on, why he’s not really shouting me out or repping me, why I don’t really got no Swizz Beatz lately? A lot of people were confused and didn’t know the behind the scenes information.”
Cassidy says that Swizz, who he speaks to more regularly these days, sent a prompt response to his messages at the time. “Before it got on every blog, right after I put it on there, he wrote some messages,” Cassidy continued. “Not even a direct message, he just responded and wrote me some messages back and I think he erased it not too long after that because he didn’t want everybody to know what we was going through."
He also explained that he never intended for it to get blown out of proportion. “That’s not something I wanted the world to be involved in, what we was going through. I just wanted him to reach out to me because we made history together. He was a good support system. Even though I’m a stand up nigga, it’d be easier to stand if you got the support from a dude like Swizz. So I just was trying to reach out to him, let the past be the past, start from scratch and move forward.”
