Twista, Ghostface Killah & Cassidy
It's been a while since we've heard from Cassidy. The veteran battle rapper made a recent appearance at the Mission Underground Freestyle to go head-to-head in a cypher with Twista and Rich Chigga enthusiast Ghostface Killah. It's about as good as it sounds. The three rappers each have a go at a creeping, minimalist beat by Trox. If Team Backpack can corral this triumvirate of legends in the same building, surely BET can do the same for the Hip Hop Awards? Which MC had the best verse?

The result is a club record that finds the vet boasting about how he's got the FeFe rocking, nodding to the new generation of Chicago rappers.
