Cassidy may have made the transition to the independent game since his last solo feature hit the Booth (which was – wow – more than two years ago?!), but that doesn’t mean the Philly mainstay’s any less committed to his grind than when we last saw him. If anything, new single Gotta Get My Paper Up is proof that the emcee’s more determined to craft quality tunes and get money than ever before. Over the minimal but head-noddably catchy chopped-sample boardwork of Neo the Matrix, Cass brings us up to date on his hustle: “I’m tryin to build, still puttin’ time in, I’m on the come-up but I’m still climbing…” In addition to dropping three positive-minded, punchline-laced verses, the artist tops the track off with some more-than-respectable sung vocals on the hook. Cassidy’s enthusiasm is palpable, and the result is an infectious track that should have even the most jaded listeners nodding along. If you’re digging it, stay tuned for further info on C.A.S.H. (Cass Always Stays Hard), which has yet to receive a solid release date.
