Cassidy’s Car Accident
Cassidy sustained serious injuries during a car accident on the night of October 5, 2006. During the incident, the car in which Cassidy was travelling was collided with a commercial truck.
Admitted to the Jersey City Medical Center, Cassidy was diagnosed with a skull fracture and broken bones in the left side of his face. The said accident left Cassidy with visible scars to this day.
Later while recollecting the entire incident, Cassidy remarked, “I was in a coma for about seven or eight days. And then they put me into a medicated coma, so that if I woke up I wouldn’t be traumatized by what I went through.
When I first woke up out of my coma, I had amnesia, so I couldn’t really remember everything. I didn’t have full amnesia; I could remember certain things. The only people I really knew were my mom, my son, people that’s real close that you knew all your life.
I knew their names but even certain experiences I couldn’t remember at first. I couldn’t remember none of my raps, even the songs I performed ‘Hotel,’ ‘I’m a Hustla,’ none of that. The doctor told me that I suffered brain damage, but it was temporary, it wasn’t permanent. So the same way it takes time for your body to heal, he said it’s gonna take your brain time to heal.”
