Split Personality

Lead Performer: Cassidy; Producer (group): Full Surface Records, J Records

The title says it all. Trying to appease the girls and the gangstas, Philadelphia newcomer and Swizz Beatz protege Cassidy’s debut flipflops between throat-scarring thug cuts (”Pop That Cannon”) and hip-grinding loverman fare (”Make U Scream”). The R. Kelly-penned ”Hotel” is already a slinky hit, but a lack of equally catchy hooks and Cassidy’s unimaginative flow sentence this CD to the cutout bin.
