After serving almost eight years in jail, Casanova broke out in 2016 with his hit single “Don’t Run.” The Brooklyn native would later link up with Memphis Bleek and sign to Roc Nation. Over the course of the last three years, Cas has evolved as an artist, going from getting out of jail to being one of the faces of New York. He explains how his evolution as an artist came from the freedom of his mind.
“Freedom is definitely a must, but you can be locked up mentally without being locked up physically,” Casanova explains. “I think that’s what I was. I was free but thinking about jail.” He adds, “My freedom comes from my mental, my mind, I’m free, I’m making happy music and before I don’t think I could [have] done that.”
Most recently, Casanova linked up with 30 Roc on a new EP, titled Free At Last, a six-song project that follows last June’s major label debut, Commissionary.
