Don’t you just love it when artists actually surprise you with free music instead of tweeting about it and its release date for a month, only for them to drop said product two days after it was scheduled to to hit the streets? Well, that’s what former rising Hip-Hop star Cassidy has just done with the surprising – but all too welcome – release of the third installment of his popular Apply Pressure mixtape series.
Co-hosted by mixtape vet DJ Thoro, Apply Pressure 3: Mayhem Music is a predictably gritty sounding, 22-track set featuring verses from fellow lyricists Fred The Godson and Top Five Dead Or Alive emcee Jadakiss, as well as guest appearances from upstarts Chubby Jag and DeCypha (not to be confused with British Hip Hop rapper Sway‘s crew).[Note: Track number six does not feature F50 – it’s merely a vocal sample].
Production on the tape is handled by a steady stream of up-and-coming beatsmiths including AListFame, Twain The Beat Maker, Stoopid, Butter Beats, Bubz Ramos, Vinylz, P.KllaTracks, B.O.S. and Frankie Piff.
