Cassidy Inks To NBA Superstar's Label

NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony has inked a deal with Philadelphia rapper Cassidy, who is planning to release a new album on Anthony’s Krossover Entertainment. Along with Cassidy’s upcoming album, Krossover Entertainment will release Berg’s debut album tentatively titled Language Arts.

Berg‘s debut will feature rappers like Rick Ross, Cool & Dre, Jadakiss, Gorilla Zoe, Raheem Devaughn and Berg’s Runnin Mates family, which also features label mate Cassidy.

“Krossover Entertainment is positioned to experience immediate growth in the mainstream entertainment industry by assembling a high powered team of management professionals and industry tastemakers,” Anthony said about the long-term vision for the label.

As Cassidy prepares his debut release for Anthony’s Krossover Entertainment, Eastside, Atlanta rapper Berg aka Diego Ca$h will be the first artist released on Anthony’s fledgling imprint.

Berg recently released a mix tape titled 800 Bodies, which showcases his alter ego.

“This mix tape shows the transformation of Berg into Diego Ca$h, and displays my lyrical growth and dedication to [the] genre of music that raised me into a rapper," added Berg.

The news comes as Anthony’s team the Denver Nuggets start get off to a slow start for the 2008-09 NBA season.

The Nuggets, who are 1-3, recently traded guard Allen Iverson, for The Detroit Pistons’ Antonio McDyess and center Cheikh Samb.

Billups, who is a Denver native, is expected to debut tomorrow (November 6) during a home game against Dallas.
