Cassidy Writes To Lil' Kim Behind Bars

Hip-hop star CASSIDY is the latest celebrity supporting jailed rapper LIL' KIM by writing her letters. Kim - real name KIMBERLY JONES - already corresponds with a string of stars, including former supermodel TYRA BANKS and fashion designer MARC JACOBS. But Cassidy insists his contribution is unique because he has gone through jail time too after spending eight months behind bars for involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault charges. Despite being released last month (MAR06), he is keen to pass on the lessons he learned to his hip-hop colleague. Cassidy tells MTV, "I learned a lot in going through this experience. Now that it's all over, I'm happy. I can benefit from the situation, getting closer to God, my real friends, people I work with, understanding how everything is supposed to move, not taking everything for granted. "When you lose things you take for granted, you realise how important they are. Like, a bottle of spring water is something you can't get access to in jail."
