Since being released from prison back in 2014, rapper Casanova admits to Nick Cannon Mornings that following a street mentality isn’t for him anymore. The Roc Nation signee discusses turning his life around after wanting to successfully secure his bag in a more polished way, his current project featuring Chris Brown, Gunna, Young Thug, and having more repercussions for police brutality.
Casanova shared how his new deal with Jay-Z’s lead Roc Nation company has assisted in the rapper turning a new leaf and outlook on his future as he reflects back on gang ties and street life. The “Coming Home” rapper says, “If the people that signed me don’t want me in their establishment, being tough ain’t cool! They don’t want that. You know what I’m saying? Other labels might allow their artists to wild out and troll and do whatever they got to do to get the artist lit but Roc Nation not with that.” Casanova goes on to continue saying, “I’m happy I’m there because they kind of like babysit me. At the end of the day, I don’t want to be tough. I don’t want that. I don’t want that stigma because you can’t get no money.”
Casanova also gets candid on his thoughts about police brutality and how society focuses on the things that aren’t always important.
I think police should be punished for shooting unarmed people. Especially the thing with the lady got shot in the house. I don’t get it. I think they got a license to kill and I think that shouldn’t be right. That’s my thing.
Casanova goes on to speak on his project that has a slew of guest appearances featuring Chris Brown, Gunna, Young Thug, and the rapper goes through a round of the Firing Squad and plays a game of chess with Nick Cannon.
