Cassidy discussed the history of a Freeway match-up with BattleRap.com back in 2014. “We don’t have a relationship like that,” Cassidy said of Jay Z. “I mean, I wouldn’t consider him my homie or my friend, but we met a few times. We talked a few times, but I don’t got a relationship with him like that. The most time me and Jay-Z spent around each other talking was the Freeway battle. He the one that set it up. It was me, him, and Swizz in the studio before it all went down. So, that was the time I really spend the most time around him. And really talked to him and all that s***.”
