2008-2009: Larsiny Break-Up?[edit]

In 2008, there was a beef brewing between Cassidy and Cal Akbar that was trying to be kept secret. Until in February 2009 various clips of Cal Akbar dissing Cassidy appeared on YouTube, resulting in a response track on Cassidy's Apply Pressure MixTape called "Dear Rodney (Akbar Diss)" and also Akbar's departure from the Larsiny group.

Cassidy took his Larsiny Family label over to Kross Over Entertainment and E1 Music with him, and released his fourth studio album titled C.A.S.H. .[2] In a 40 minute video speaking on the Meek Mill and Cassidy beef, AR-Ab, though still on good terms with his former mentor, confirmed that he was no longer in Larsiny Family.
