Early last month, Def Sounds reported that Meek Mill challenged any battle rapper to face off against him. Then again this past week, the MMG rapper reiterated his statement, and said he’s still down to battle, and specifically called out Cassidy, and Murda Mook, but said that he’s not going to do it for free, and it will have to be for $100,000 or better.
During a recent interview with The Warner Sound, Meek Mill issued a 100K battle challenged to Cassidy or Murder Mook.
I’m a leader. I don’t follow people. We have a lane to take this to another level where a whole ‘nother money circuit could open up. I’m a leader. I’m willing to take the leadership and when I take that leadership, don’t be mad when I’m the only one getting that leader money and you might be battling for a little 40 or 50 grand because I’m the one that took the chance to open the door. You gotta have a hundred [thousand dolloars] or better. I can’t do it for free. That ain’t my lane. Win, lose or draw, just for even stepping on the court. Just to step in. … They got a million sponsors that’d love to have Meek Mill with that banner in the back for them going in to 20,000 people because when I battle, it ain’t going to be 5,000, it’s going to be 20,000 people or better. I ain’t doing no home court advantages. … I think I’d [match up] Cassidy and [Murda] Mook right now. That’d be crazy right there. I’d do Cassidy and Mook. … Cassidy ain’t been in a battle but everybody knows, Cassidy, that’s what he do.
Check out Meek Mill’s interview with The Warner Sound:
Fellow Philly rapper Cassidy heard Meek Mill issue the 100k challenge, and says ready and willing to face off and battle Meek.
Cassidy called into Philly’s 107.9, and accepted Meek’s challenge:
Well, you know, that’s what I do, man. I mean, I’m cut from that cloth. I started off with battling so I’m into that but ever since I got a deal and started getting money up in this industry, it wasn’t really beneficial for me to battle especially with a bunch of those dudes that are battling all the time. I know I’ma bite they head off but it’s like, really, what am I going to get out of it? … Meek got that wave right now, he a household name, bigging him up — we definitely can get a nice crowd, get some crazy sponsors and get some chicken up. So it’ll be beneficial for me to do something like that.

If this goes down, who’s your money on Cassidy or Meek Mill?
Update (s/o Ill Sim on the heads up): Well it looks like Meek backed out last night soon after Cassidy accepted his challenge. Maybe he’ll have a change of heart after he sees all the attention this is getting.
