Cassie Cites Label Politics As Cause For Hiatus

CASSIE THAT GRAPE JUCIE Cassie Cites Label Politics As Cause For Hiatus

Seven years.

That may not seem like a long time on paper, but in ‘industry theory’…it’s a lifetime.

From the unexpected rise of Rihanna to the ground breaking arrival of Lady GaGa, the last seven years have seen Cassie watch acts she once considered contemporaries (or had never heard of) become music juggernauts…while her brand watched from the sidelines.

So, why has it taken so long for her return to music?

Her interesting explanation below…

Your thoughts?

      Wow… My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~~~ MìxedŚìngle.Çoм ~ ~~Serious interracial dating is an ideal platform for afro romance for black & white singles.

    …or lack of talent.

    She’s a beautiful girl, but she had ONE major hit…SEVEN years ago. I don’t think there’s anybody clamoring for a Cassie comeback.

      Cassie is one of many marginally – no talent having chicks in the music biz. Everybody knows that instead of grinding & putting in the work with Ryan Leslie to build her career & “brand”, she took the easy way out by becoming Diddy’s ho.

    She needs Ryan Leslie to make her another album or just go back to modelling.

    OK says:

    Didn’t listen to the video, but how can it be due to “label politics” when she’s been f****** the head of the label for the past 7 years?

    POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) says:

    a classic sign of a REAL flop, blaming her label , she should be grateful they signed her up cuz till today i don’t see their reasons to do so.

    So, why has it taken so long for her return to music?

    because she has NO VOICE.

      Damn… you act like Rih got a voice or something boo

  12. May 17, 2013 at 9:59 am
    King B>Rihanna says:

    or maybe the hiatus is due to the fact that Diddy rather you suck his d*** than put out an album.

    Label politics?I don’t buy that gurl,if you wanted to happen you had DIDDY to pull out all strings..You simply never took your music career seriously,which was a good thing coming to think about it.

    I think the problem was those bad performances from Bet and TRl during the promotion of her first album. I don’t think she will ever reach superstar level, her time has past. I don’t think anyone takes her seriously because she was and is dating her boss.

      Stans Make Me Lol says:

      All of the above, plus I think Cassie was more concerned with smashing Diddy than actually focusing on her craft
