Audio: Casanova – “So Brooklyn” ft. Fabolous
Signed to Roc Nation, in Partnership with Republic Records, the Flatbush Native Crafts a Hard-Hitting Anthem for His Community
Critical Praise for Casanova:
“Unlike most current New Yorker rappers, Casanova opts to body tracks akin to the days of G-Unit or Dipset, brandishing rapid-fire flows and throaty growls full of malice that are equally as menacing as his 6’4” frame.” – HipHopDX
“Thanks to Casanova’s strapping voice, charismatic personality, and unyielding confidence, “Don’t Run” set New York’s music scene ablaze…With an already convincing résumé, Casanova isn’t slowing down anytime soon.” – Billboard
“Move over fake rappers because Casanova is out to prove he’s the real deal. The Brooklyn, N.Y. native (Flatbush to be exact) isn’t faking the funk when it comes to his reality; he prides himself on being authentic and serving lyrics based on real life events rather than fabrication.” – XXL
Known for his intense vocals and uncompromising realism, Casanova embodies the defiant and self-reliant spirit of New York City. Delivering an anthem for his hometown community, Casanova shares “So Brooklyn,” his new song. Running roughshod atop minor-key piano and backed by an ensemble chanting “BROOK-LYN!”, Casanova announces he’s aiming for the top spot in the Five Boroughs, bursting out of the speakers with his authoritative bark: “I start sh!t and I spark sh!t/Bout to get on some real King Of New York sh!t.” The new track features a colorful verse from Fabolous, who works in a cheeky reference to the country’s number one song: “Old Town Road for my projects/Ride ’til I can’t no more, I’m Lil Nas X.”
Since breaking out in 2016 with the local hit “Don’t Run,” Flatbush native Casanova has been one of NYC’s most consistently raw entertainers. Released on New Year’s Day 2018, his single “Set Trippin'” established him as a radio and boombox mainstay, earned over 20 million views on YouTube, and headlined his debut Commissary EP. Earlier this year, Casanova dropped Free At Last, a collaborative EP with 30 Roc, a Bronx-born who has worked with the likes of Cardi B, Travis Scott, and more. The EP boasted “2AM,” an afropop-influenced single with a Lagos-shot music video, featuring appearances from Tory Lanez and Davido, which earned more than 10 million plays on Spotify alone. Stay tuned for much more from Casanova in the coming months, as he continues his artistic evolution and commercial climb.

Casanova 2X elbowed his way into rap’s competitive coliseum. Armed with the infectious warning shot “Don’t Run,” the Brooklyn rhyme rookie simultaneously made a name for himself and scored early success at radio and streaming platforms. His robust energy and primal charisma consumed the entire New York City tri-state area, convincing hip-hop heads to adopt his signature salute, “Boom Boom Boom!” Certified by the years he spent incarcerated, the 32-year-old’s 2018 debut EP Commissary—featuring guest appearances from Chris Brown, Fabolous, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and G-Eazy—established him as one of hip-hop’s hottest rising stars. Off parole and ready to see the world, Casanova let his artistry fly first class with the recent release of his aptly titled Free At Last EP, released in 2019.
