Has Cake-less Cassie Cultivated A Crazy Cult Congregation?

- By Bossip Staff

Cassandra Ventura has been the subject of a polarizing debate since her debut on the music scene in 2006 with her smash Myspace-turned-radio hit “Me and U”. Some love her because she’s fine as fizzzuck, others for her fashion sense, and some people just love to hate her.

If everyone else, (besides the UK’s top rated newspaper The Guardian) had as much appreciation for non-sanging pretty ’singers’ like Cassie, she’d be a much bigger entity by now. Although Cassie doesn’t have the vocal chops comparative to your Beyonce’s and Jennifer Hudson’s, her vocals are not the worst and they work well on kinetic, infectious club beats.

I’m actually shocked that the 24-year-old has a growing cult of hardcore supporters, but that would be down to the singer impacting the dance and electronic world. Apparently, a tribute mixtape was put together which involved several underground artists remixing and re-producing many of her tracks.

Tri Angle Records boss Robin Carolan celebrated the new year by getting the words ‘Me & U’ tattooed on his arm. He states:

“In her vocals, there’s a lot of space; from a producer’s point of view that’s what you want, you can completely mash it up and reconstruct it”.

The Cassie appreciation was evident when last year, English DJ-producer Deadboy released ‘Cash Antics Vol. 1′. The compilation remixed her vocals, and the ‘Skydiver’ compilation involved dubstep producers Brackles and Jacques Greene reworking her tunes.

Carolan continues:
“For my artists, such as oOoOO and How to Dress Well—the idea of Cassie singing on their tracks is a dream. Others might view her as a has-been, but in this world she’s a legend. It sounds like she’s trapped in ice. There’s this stillness to [her voice]. Even though she’s not forcefully singing she still demands your attention”.

However you feel about Cassie is your business. Does she have a lil hoe swag? Maybe. Is she EVER going to have a song that matters again? Ehhhh, probably not. But will she always have your attention for one reason or another? Damn skippy!

  • detroitplaya

    If Diddy hadn’t already sprayed DNA all over that, she’d be perfect. (yes, even with her ‘gina looking like something from the Arby’s value menu)

  • JaZzIe91

    I never heard C*ssie sing live before but its a few songs I love from her: Me & U, Offici@l Girl, and Must Be Love. Those songs are mad hot!! I know she’s not the best singer but she’s not as bad as people make her out to be.

  • Dat sum real N*gga Sh*t!

    I like her, but yawll kno that already and my name aint stan! Shes talented and fine as haiell. Who cares if she cant sing like bey or jhud. She has her own thang and thats just fine. I am pullin for her she deserves to be heard! F*ck tha haters! They just jealous and prolly cant hold a note them damn selvs, look like f*ckn’ TROLLS, and live like shut-ins stuck in front of a damn computer and tv wishin they were someone special! FUGGEM!

  • daisy jay

    I must say, I liked Me & U when it first came out and I do to this day. My favorite song by her is Official Girl. I’ve heard her perform live and she doesn’t even have a voice. She’s barely a studio artists, if that. Luckily for her, Diddy knows how to put songs together just good enough to make consumers like it. If she wasn’t on his label, her career would be nonexistent. I don’t think she has some kind of power because of the head-shaving thing. Any celebrity could do something outrageous and have a ton of people follow them. Like I’ve mentioned before, she should just stick to modeling because she is indeed a pretty girl. The truth is, all she has is looks. Not too much talent to be honest.

  • wendy

    i think ya all just jealous… i hope the album comes out soon


    Now! how would would ya do that?(blank stare)…enquiring minds wanna know!
