Fans on Twitter are convinced DJ Vlad is responsible for Casanova’s current legal plight because of a particular tweet that was fired off on Monday night (December 7).
The Twitter post featured a YouTube video from Hip Hop Media Uncensored which suggests the FBI pulled information from VladTV interviews (despite the indictment making no such mention of VladTV). Hip Hop News Uncensored reports the feds have been watching Casanova since 2010, meaning they would’ve had plenty of time to dig into Casanova’s media appearances.
People familiar with VladTV are sometimes suspicious of not only his interview style but also the specific questions he asks about his subject’s criminal activity.
BREAKING: The FBI Admits To Using These Vlad Interviews To Indict Casanova https://t.co/crFVhyHrE7

The information used in the YouTube video comes from the initial indictment that was unsealed in White Plains Federal Court on Tuesday. Eighteen Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang members, including Casanova, stand accused of crimes ranging from murder and assault to narcotics trafficking.
Assistant US Attorney Shiva Logarajah wrote, “Using his public platform, he [Casanova] has amplified the message of the gang — both through his music and his social media profiles.”
InnerCityPress, the outlet that meticulously covered Tekashi 6ix9ine’s racketeering trial on Twitter, confirmed information Casanova supplied during his interviews, presumably with Vlad, was used in the indictment. But, as mentioned earlier, there’s no mention of VladTV in the indictment.
“In public interviews, he has admitted to stabbing inmates while incarcerated on those charges,” a tweet reads. “And the Government has recovered photos from his iCloud account of several firearms, demonstrating his continued access to weapons. In addition to publicly promoting the gang and glorifying its activities, Senior [who was also indicted] is also a drug supplier for Gorilla Stone.”
Vlad is currently a trending Twitter topic, but it’s not the first time this year. In September, Royce Da 5’9 called Vlad out for disrespecting Minister Louis Farrakhan and Twitter wanted him canceled then too. The Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish, media personality Scottie Beam and journalist Bruce Coleridge-Taylor Wright are among the many joining the war.

Don’t just stop watching Vlad, stop fucking with content like that entirely.

MF DOOM is a prophet who didn't have to be interviewed by Vlad for his fans to know about:

Sit in the court and be their own star witness
