DJ Cruze Reviews Cassidy’s ‘Surfboard’

Guess Who’s Back?

Since our last posts, “So, Everybody’s Drunk In Love Now,” and “DJ Cruze Reviews ‘Drunk In Love,’ Remix” it seems that literally, everyone is Drunk in Love.  When was the last time a song was remixed so much?  We knew Drunk in Love was going to be a radio banger ever since it’s release in December, but who knew it would inspire the entire Rap Music Community?  Not only has Rapper T.I. made his version, but Philly Rapper Cassidy is back with a legitimate track  – not just another Meek Mill dis – titled “Surfboard.”

DJ Cruze says, “He completely remade the beat to fit his style. The running snares…simple kick with minimal bass. The producer still used the same vocals with additional vocals from im guessing an upcoming singer.”


DJ Cruze admires Cassidy for this remix attempt, he’s followed his music for some time now and can truly say one good thing about Cassidy and it’s that he remains consistent.  He continues, “I like how this rapper doesn’t change his swag on rapping; however, his flow still the same.”  DJ Cruze feels that Cassidy’s metaphors and rapping style is redundant and this isn’t enough to make it on the current music scene, “I think that’s why this guy hasn’t had much success in the recent years… he hasn’t recreated himself.”

This track will; however, get him some positive attention in an attempt to rebuild his image.  Compared to the other remixes, the track had a fresh beat, at least.  It is something new compared to what was released this weekend, although still using the “flashing lights,” “watermelon” and “surfboard” lines as the chorus; each artist kept with the theme of the song and it’s raunchy undertone…some more obvious than others.  Beyonce’s message was subliminal; however, the artists have used this as their chance to express their sexual freedom.


Overall, DJ Cruze rates the song as a three-out-of-five.  DJ Cruze says, “Cassidy is just short of a four rating due to his style.  If he was to be a little more descriptive and less lyrical, perhaps it would of gotten more of my attention.”
