Throwback Thursday: "Get No Better" -- Cassidy ft. Mashonda

Well there's a lot going on in this one, ain't there?
  • First, and foremost, you have young Cassidy, at what appeared to be the start of a rise to stardom. Then his murder case and car accident sidetracked that rise, and the Philly hustla has never really found his way since.
  • Second, you have Mashonda, the ex-Mrs. Swizz, who's gained more attention for Alicia Keys' homewrecking than for her musical talents. (And that's a shame, since she certainly has talent; "Hold Me" with Kanye is one of my all-time favorite tracks.)
  • Last, but certainly not least, you have VIDA. My...god. I wish I could tell you how many times I heard "Yo, who's the girl in the Cass video??" after this joint first aired. Truth be told, Mashonda looks good. Real good. So for them not to make her Cass' love interest in the video took something—someone amazing. Vida, te amo, mami.
