As a Philadelphia emcee, Tone Trump has a perspective on Meek Mill vs. Cassidy that many don't.
“Niggas love negativity. If Meek Mill and Cassidy was on Twitter shouting each other out and showing each other love, nobody would say nothing about it,” said Tone in an interview with AllHipHop.com.
Tone Trump explained how he wasn't going to participate in the negativity, because he felt he owed something to both emcees. “Because their having a disagreement, people try to instigate it and pipe it up. I’m not taking no part of it, I got respect for both of them. For what they are doing and did for the city and opening up lanes an creating opportunities for niggas like me to get money.”
“A lot of people on the outside looking in just look at the Philly beef shit as entertainment, but me being from Philly, I know how real certain rap beefs done got," lamented Tone. "Niggas done lost their lives over this shit. Niggas in prison over rap beefs from Philly, niggas who never going to see their kids because of rap beefs.”
“I think its a step backwards for us, we need to be on some unity shit and getting money so we can control our market the way the Southern artists [control] their market,” he concluded. “Where they don’t even have to leave their market to get a whole bunch of money. I feel like the best way of doing that is to mess with each other and not diss each other.”
