Brooklyn, New York’s own Casanova had a major 2019 campaign thanks to breaking out with his sophomore album Behind These Scars last October. The deeply personal record was his first full-length project under Roc Nation and saw features from artists such as Young Thug, Gunna, DMX and Fabolous. Now Casanova returns with two of Atlanta’s most dominant artists, Young Thug and Gunna for the “So Drippy” visual.
The ultra-wide Panavision lens finds the three rappers in a strip club surrounded by smoke and mirrors while the cinematography adds some trippy motion blurs to match the “So Drippy” theme. Meanwhile a couple of club-goers plot on Casanova’s downfall in the background for an ominous ending. The music video was directed by veteran Marc Diamond who has also worked alongside the likes of Future, Young Dolph, Young M.A and more.
Earlier last year, Casanova talked to us about creating Behind These Scars. “Freedom is definitely a must, but you can be locked up mentally without being locked up physically,” he explained. “I think that’s what I was. I was free but thinking about jail… 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.”
Watch the full music video above and revisit our Conversations With: Casanova episode where the Brooklyn rapper talks about serving almost eight years in jail, freedom and Roc Nation.
