The Brooklyn rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday (June 28) to break his silence on the ruling, with his accused crimes including a shooting in Florida in July 2020, a robbery in New York City in August 2018 and conspiracy to traffic over 100 kilograms of marijuana.
Casanova appears to have quickly come to terms with the outcome of his case as he posted a short message to his followers.
“Everything to the chin, Nothing to the heart,” he wrote. “I GET IT NOW. I hope that don’t go over ya heads.”

Casanova received 188 months behind bars from U.S. District Judge Philip M. Halpern on Tuesday (June 27), with the judge calling him a “high-profile leader of a vicious street gang.”
“Caswell Senior is not just a notorious recording artist, but he is also a high-profile leader of a vicious street gang and a magnet for gang violence,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in a press release.
“At a crowded Miami house party, Senior personally fired a gun that seriously injured and could have killed a victim, inciting a shootout.
“Further, Senior’s stature in the community was central to Gorilla Stone’s successful recruitment and nationwide expansion.”
He added: “Today’s sentencing — along with the other significant sentences that have been imposed in this case — shows once again that gang life is not worth it and will lead to many years in prison.”
Casanova was the 12th defendant to be sentenced in the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang case, with five other defendants pleading guilty and awaiting sentencing.
His girlfriend Swaggy Jazzy publicly declared her loyalty to him following his 15-year prison sentence earlier this week.
“I love you baby,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories. “We gon walk that shit down!”
