Casanova was one of the rising rappers in the world of hip-hop. However, all of that went down the drain after he was arrested back in 2020. The rapper was charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Last week, Casanova pleaded guilty to charges involving robbery and drug dealing. However, the attempted murder case was promptly removed. He accepted the plea deal related to alleged gang activity with the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation.
Casanova even suggested that the police kept him “in the box” for the past few months so that he would succumb to accepting a deal. He even thanked Chris Brown for giving him financial assistance.
According to a report by Rolling Stone, the only reason Casanova agreed to the plea deal was due to someone else cooperating with federal authorities and snitching on him.
“Assistant U.S. Attorney David Felton said there was social media evidence, including a post on Senior’s Instagram showing him next to a large quantity of marijuana. Direct messages and intercepted communications also showed his membership in Gorilla Stone. In a recorded call from a New York state prison, one Gorilla Stone member told another that Senior always carried a gun. One gang member said on a call that they were worried that Senior’s behavior “would potentially tarnish his rap career,” Felton claimed. Some incidents in this conspiracy took place in Florida, Felton said.
One cooperator told the feds that Senior accidentally fired a gun at a poker game. A witness told authorities that they saw Senior receive “shipments of large quantities of marijuana.” Senior also fired a gun during a gambling dispute. “Gorilla Stone members saw him and his rap career as a way to make money and increase their status among other Bloods sects,” Felton commented.
Casanova could be facing anywhere between 5 to 60 years for all the charges meted against him. He will be locked behind bars no matter what now and he has already accepted that. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing matter.
