Short bio

Boston rapper, producer, and guitarist Connor Cassidy gained his first mainstream recognition in 2019 upon releasing "Guillotine," a trap centered anthem that shattered the U.S. and European nightlife scenes. Known for his aggressive sound and genre-bending style, he garnered his first attention as an artist during his teenage years by being a tenacious live performer: free-styling and DJ-ing at various venues across The New England Area. At age 18, however, he hung up his short career as an artist due to a node that had formed on his vocal cords, thus preventing him from recording, touring, and even speaking. After a long period of silence and an esoteric journey across the worlds of business, education, artist management, and spiritual seeking, he's stepped back into his proper role of an artist at the ripe age of 23. With the same vocal-scar but a renewed energy and vision for the future, he's set to release his debut album, PHOENIX, in Summer of 2019.

Song meaning

City Lights is a an aggressive, adrenaline based rap song that could serve well as a soundtrack for a James Bond movie or Grand Theft Auto sequel. As the second single off his upcoming album “PHOENIX,” It paints the ambition of someone with a contagious lust for life: one that won’t be compromised by any adversity or slowed down by any distractions. The video models the plot-line of “Limitless,” a movie starring Bradly Cooper where he takes a pill that allows him to access his full intelligence, and evolve rapidly in every aspect of his life. Based in Boston, MA (Connor’s hometown), the music video shows Connor’s ascension in the city, as he strives to become an exceptional man and master every area of his life: music, finances, conditioning, relationships, intelligence, etc. It paints the ambition of a modern hustler.
