Hip hop star Cassidy was known as one of the greatest battle rappers in history. But two days ago, he got destroyed by a rival battle rapper Arsenal.

And the destruction happened inside Cassidy's hometown of Philly and really embarrassing to watch.

According to Complex, "Arsonal and Cassidy met in Philadelphia to trade their bars. Arsonal is known for his disrespectful approach, but some people figured things would be tamer since they were meeting in Cass' hometown for the battle. This couldn't be further from the truth."

First, the rival rapper let the crowd know that he had ZERO respect for the middle-aged Cassidy. After only a few bars, he grabbed Cassidy and started shaking him - like an evil nanny does to an infant:

Then, during Cassidy's rap - he got a little too close to his opponent. And so dude blows smoke all in Cassidy's face:

And when it was Cassidy's turn to rap - his bars were very unimpressive. The crowd eventually got restless and started booing him:

Then after a few more bars, the crowd turned on Cassidy completely. The crowd started yelling 'No" and laughing at Cassidy. It was hard to watch:

Complex's report continued: 

In Cassidy's defense, Philly is known for its harsh crowds no matter what type of competition they are watching. When Arsonal stumbled on a line coming out the gate, he too was briefly booed. Yet, Cassidy has had a lackluster run in the URL. While his bars sound good on tracks, they haven't stood up to perfected a cappella lines of battle rap. After another disappointing performance, fans are turned off from the idea of hearing Cassidy continue to go up against artists that are established in this arena.
