Cassie Cites Label Politics As Cause For Hiatus

Published: Friday 17th May 2013 by David

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. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)perhaps you can have a try.

    …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.

    • MelyB May 17, 2013

      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.

    I love her mixtape…. I doubt she’ll ever reach Gaga n Rihs level tho

  4. Jerquatta May 17, 2013

    B**** Bye!! You’re f****** your boss! #TRYAGAINBOO

  5. Savannah May 17, 2013

    One hit wonder.

  6. nobitchassness May 17, 2013

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

    • Yolanda Alfred May 17, 2013

      your right. true.

    to sam and the thatgrapejuice team : i love y’all but enough with these ads already, it’s annoying, it’s all over my screen, all the time, on each page,then you have to close….UGHHH it’s not fun to be on this site anymore 🙁

    • Amras May 17, 2013

      Install an ad-blocker! I didn’t even know there are ads on this page.

    After the problem of people said she can’t sing live? Who care you’re voice he’s like rihana! i will always see it’s cassie who sing! like all artist you do a album with three generic song for radio & other song you will for yor album!
    i never undrestand why “king of hearth” doesn’t work! i like it a lot!

  9. OK May 17, 2013

    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?

  10. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 17, 2013

    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.

  11. HOTSTUFF May 17, 2013

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

    because she has NO VOICE.

    • B2B May 17, 2013

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

  12. King B>Rihanna May 17, 2013

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

  13. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 17, 2013

    Yea and im so sure her WHACKNESS has nothing to do with her not being a ‘Rhi’ or Gaga. Chiiiiiile i cant….

  14. JR1 May 17, 2013

    I never go on the main tgj website. I always visit the mobile site from my computer browser. It eliminates all the ads

  15. DOSSOME May 17, 2013

    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.

    Basic Stupid B****. She still gets interviews? Gosh

    • Amras May 17, 2013

      Who are you? A lamb? On every damn post there is a bad comment. Talking about a black sheep.

  19. lexi May 17, 2013

    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 May 17, 2013

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