Rapper Casanova was given a 15-year prison term only yesterday, as we previously reported. Overall, a number of drug and racketeering accusations led to this sentence. The artist subsequently entered a guilty plea despite initially denying any wrongdoing. It took some time before he received a sentence, but it was all delivered two nights ago. Now that Casanova must spend the next 188 months behind bars, he faces a very difficult road ahead of him.
Since the ruling, Casanova has subsequently decided to issue a statement on Twitter. Below, you can see what he had to say on the matter. For the most part, he has decided to remain fairly positive about the whole thing. “Everything to the chin, Nothing to the heart. I GET IT NOW. I hope that don’t go over ya heads,” he wrote. Previously, the artist had written a letter to the judge, asking for leniency in his sentencing. Additionally, he even denounced his previous gang affiliations.
Casanova Breaks His Silence
Everything to the chin, Nothing to the heart. I GET IT NOW.
I hope that don’t go over ya heads

“I am telling you and anyone that will listen that I wanted out before I was arrested and I am out. I’ve learned through my music career that people will listen and that I don’t need to associate myself with a gang to succeed. I don’t need to associate with a gang even if I don’t succeed,” the rapper wrote. “While I have been in here I lost my father to cancer. While I put on that strong facade, all I wanted to do was end it. Surviving on Rikers Island and upstate correctional facilities were not easy with racial and gang tension and violence at its height.”
Since denouncing his gang, Casanova has been in danger, according to his lawyer. He was even beaten up in prison, which left him bloody. Needless to say, there are some worries about his safety now that he will be in prison for over a decade.
