Cassidy Trial Over – Guilty of Manslaughter

Ok, that had to be the quickest murder trial in history. Apparently your boy avoided a murder conviction but got hit with involuntary manslaughter and assault charges. He was sentenced to 11 1/2 to 23 months in prison. 

From AHH:

The rapper could possibly be out of jail in a few months because of time already served in prison. The rapper has been incarcerated since June.

At the non-jury trial, Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan said that rapper was negligent in providing guns to assailants that eventually killed Desmond Hawkins, a 22-year-old Philadelphia man.

"You could be a leader in the community," Greenspan said according to the Associated Press. "All those guns – that’s why Desmond is gone now, because of all those guns."

In court, the rapper expressed remorse for the crime. "It’s a tragic situation for me too. I didn’t set up for this to happen. Desmond Hawkins was my friend … one of my closest friends,” he told the judge.

    11 to 23 MONTHS????? for a manslaughter charge? wow.

    more power to him. i’m not a fan, but hopefully he will be able to move on with his life.

  3. e-dubbs Says:

    i dont really know the true specifics of this case to give fair comments.. I do think its an idiotic move by Cassidy if he was involved though. Your on your way to being rich! Leave the street sh*t to street dudes.

  4. KingML Says:

    With good behavior he could be producing an album with G Unit in November!! They need more criminals.

  8. Curt McGirt Says:

    I guess he’ll go platinum now cuz he’s real (Sarcasm added). Form the Hotel to the big house to the half-way house with 500,000 street cred points for beating a murder case!

    Good any where that accepts WIC and EBT.

    Bland in DC.

    Toma. Since I’ve promised to come off as less bitter whilst blogging from here on out, to keep things balanced and fair, there will be an general increase in mean-spirtedness with touch of added high-sididdy-osity on my part. So…

  11. Bird Says:

    Uh Young Boii Fresh sweetheart you don’t kill people for talking behind yourback baby. He could have gotten life in jail for someone talking behind his back. I pray you are just flexing for the web and don’t really believe that ish.

  12. William H. Sunday Says:

    Any money that faggot makes should go to the family of the dude that died.

    11 1/2 months for a human life?!? I suppose that is all a Black person is worth to the ‘Just-Us’ system. I don’t care who produces CASSIDY now. I won’t co-sign self-destruction.

    It’s unfortunate that the vehicle that so many people can use to make a living is being driven by the folks that only wish to make a killing.

  13. DEEZ NUTS Says:

    HE’S LUCKY HE DOESN’T LIVE IN FLORIDA. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN HIT BY THAT 10-20-LIFE AND NEVER SEE THE STREET AGAIN. I AIN’T MAD AT YOU CASSIDY.

  14. Demiks Says:

    Being a rapper is the only career that looks as criminal records as a plus.

    Wow, when you think about it, it doesn’t sound so good.

  15. I_B_BLK_MAN Says:

    MONEY TALKS YA’LL KNOW THE REST. WHAT THE JUSTIC SYSTEM IS SAYING IS—YOU GOT DOUGH WE LET YOU GO.TRUE STORY.

  16. T Nelson Says:

WHEN WILL THE BLACK COMMUNITY LEARN TO STOP SUPPORTING “GAWBAGE”! LOOK AT THE BLACK YOUTH OF TODAY AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT A NEGATIVE PICTURE IT PAINTS FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS. FUCK CASSIDY AND EVERY OTHER RAPPER IN JAIL! I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW THESE COWARDS COULD BE SOME YOUNG MANS ROLE MODEL OR SOME YOUNG WOMANS DREAM MATE.

    How’s the old saying go?…” do the crime you gotta do the time”…I guess not in this case…

  23. MS.CALI Says:

    there are people every day hoping for the chance you got….to hear their own voice on the radio or in the club and you can’t straighten up and do right. I HATE DUMB PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. DEEZ NUTS Says:

  25. kitty Says:

  26. 187 Says:

  27. reefermadness Says:

    We all know what goes around comes around. Just look at what happened to Beanie Siegel’s step pops (RIP). Cassidy, you’d better watch your back. Niggas might not retaliate against you, but against your fam or anyone you chill wit.

  28. DEEZ NUTS Says:

    “I KNOW THAT NIGGA CASSIDY. THAT NIGGA BARRY FROM MY HOOD SON. THAT NIGGA GOT MAD RESPECT IN PHILLY EVEN BEFORE THAT SHIT SON. ALL THE JONS WAS ON HIM AND SHIT SON. THEM JONS KNOW THAT NIGGA MAD CRAZY SON. I SEEN THAT NIGGA BLAZE THIS NIGGA ONE NIGHT FOR NOTHING YO.” sike.

  29. caramel_dlux Says:

    I DON’T KNOW WHY MUTHA FUCKAS IS ACTING LIKE THIS AIN’T REAL LIFE. THIS KINDA SHIT HAPPENS EVERYDAY IN THE HOOD. IT’S SAD TO SEE ANOTHER BRUTHA DEAD, BUT YOU GOT TO GET DOWN HOW YOU LIVE. IF YOU IN THE STREETS YOU KNOW THE RISK INVOLVED. AND FOR THAT MATTER NOBODY REALLY KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED EXCEPT THE PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE. . . PERIOD.

    KEEP IN MIND JUST CAUSE A STREET NIGGA GET A RECORD DEAL DON’T MEAN HE AIN’T A STREET NIGGA. HE JUST GOT SOME CASH NOW. INSTEAD OF BORROWING YA BOY’S .22 THAT 5 NIGGAS SHARE YOU CAN BUY YOUR OWN. IF U FROM THE HOOD AND RAN THE STREETS A RECORD DEAL AIN’T GOING TO MAKE YOU FROM BEVERLY HILLS OR SOME SHIT. IT’S CALLED STREET MENTALITY. THAT IS WHY THERE IS SO MUCH DRAMA WHEN A LOT OF RAPPERS GET TOGETHER AT CLUBS AND AWARD SHOWS. A REAL PERSON IS WHO THEY ARE REGARDLESS OF THE FAME.

    HE’S GOING TO BLOW NOT DIRECTLY BECAUSE HE’S A CRIMINAL, BUT BECAUSE HE GOT AN EVEN MORE INTERESTING STORY TO TELL. ISN’T THAT WHAT A RAPPER IS. . .A STORYTELLER? ASK YOURSELF WHY DO VIOLENT MOVIES AND VIDEO GAME MAKE SO MUCH MONEY? THAT’S WHY HE IS GOING TO DO THE SAME WHEN HE GETS OUT.

    ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM.

  30. caramel_dlux Says:

  37. J Filly Says:

    Cassidy is a street nigga. it is what it is. he raps about it and talks about it. all you haters need to get off his dick. obviously the nigga who got popped wasnt an angel, he was affiliated with street niggas. None of you fake ass niggas making these comments are from the streets and if you are your a being a hypocrat. He makes it obvious in his raps that the streets was his life before rap so it is his right to do what ever he wants regardless of what the public thinks. Im happy he only got a year, he definately deserved it but he is paying his time. his next album is gonna be fire. and who ever udontknowme is ” shut the fuck up” cuz udontknowshit

  38. kaya Says:

    after reading all your comments bout cass an’ stuff, So what’s the difference between a fake ass and somebody who’s real from the streets? and is it just 4 the peeps of usa, cos here in the uk, got 2many livin of this crap, everybody in urban area’s specfically in london claims that they live in some sort of ghetto, when infact it ain’t as bad, i mean there’s much more opportunity here anyway for the young un’s. they just choose 2mess up what they get/have and are the likely 1′s to moan when they get older. although i understand that there are geniune peeps who got issues and are struggling, usaually they ain’t the ones going on about it! what r you’re views on that?????

    He is a ok freestyle rapper wtih 2 hits under his belt and he didn’t even make those 2 hot. R.Kelly mad “Hotel” Hot & Jay-Z’s sample made “I’m a Hustla”! So please spare me… Anyway he’s gonna get what’s coming to him, and it aint no platinum album homee!

    Did you hear about the car accident?? Yeah, Karma is a mutha** you get what you deserve. You on two strikes right now CLOWN, and unless you got 9 lives you better wise up!
