Months ago we informed you that Cassidy was been hard at work on a few projects in collaboration with Pastor Jomo K. Johnson of Philly Open Air Church. Today we receive the first offering from the musical piece with “Amazing Grace.”
The track is a departure from the rapid fire punchlines we’ve grown accustomed to hearing from Cassidy. Instead, he and Pastor Johnson give glory to the Most High, and speak on how religion has positively affected their being. The City of Brotherly Love preacher even raps on the record, which is probably why this has been deemed the first Rapper/Pastor Hip-Hop Music Collaboration.
“Amazing Grace,” is only phase one in the grand scheme of things, as Cassidy has also worked with GGIS Piublishing to create his biography Behind B.A.R.S., set to release with the EP April 30. See a brief statement from the former Full Surface wordsmith and let us know is you’re feeling the song in the comments.
They say that your entire life flashes before your eyes before death. This book consists of what flashed before me the night of my near-fatal car accident. Some of these event I have not shared with anyone.
