The renowned DJ Cassidy checked in with the KDAY Morning Show to celebrate the success of his Pass The Mic show, which will hit a series milestone as the the fifth installment will call out all of our favorite hip-hop giants. Speaking with Cece and Romeo, Cassidy explains that he created Pass The Mic back in 2020 in a way to connect people around the world during the height of the global coronavirus pandemic. Cassidy tells the story about what sparked the idea to curate the show, which happened during a FaceTime call with his friend, mentor, and Earth, Wind, And Fire member Verdine White.
