Brooklyn bred rapper Casanova has been locked up since December 2020, when he was arrested on federal charges. The Feds are claiming that the rapper is the leader of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation. The gang is responsible for a number of crimes including the murder of a 15 year old in Poughkeepsie, New York. This week Casanova made a desperate plea to fans and those in power to help him get out.
The Casanova plea came from his manager, on a social media post as the rapper sits in prison in a Westchester County prison. Casanova was indicted with 17 other individuals on charges of firearm possession, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and unemployment fraud. Inmates in New York State prisons are not allowed to have cell phone or social media access.
Casanova made the desperate please and shared a couple of images of him in lock-up.
This is a public service announcement to all my fans and very important friends. I’ve been incarcerated for almost one year now, exhausted all remedies and spent a significant amount of money on legal fees to prove my innocence.The charges against me are false,they don’t represent or reflect the person that I am. They are simply using my past criminal history to crucify me in court. I’m the same individual that went to city hall and housing projects with @ericadamsfornyc to speak to children and explain to them how shootings and gun violence isn’t the way of life.I’ve visited shelters to feed the people in need all around the world including Africa, donated to back to school drives and not one of my good deeds are mentioned or acknowledged. I’m calling on all the great people with meaningful and powerful voices to help me with this matter. Any help provided will be a blessing, because I feel defeated one’s past shouldn’t be the reason why you can’t be afforded a successful future. No one should be held accountable for the crimes they have already served their time for, in legal terms that’s considered double jeopardy. Last but not least Happy Birthday to me, Free Me Until They Free Me, Y’all Know Outside Ain’t The Same Without Me. “LOL”
