Casanova is set to appear later this month for sentencing regarding his alleged involvement in crimes as part of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang.

However, in hopes of leniency, he has penned a vulnerable letter to his sentencing judge.

“I am telling you and anyone that will listen that I wanted out before I was arrested, and I am out. I 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,” he 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.”

Casanova continued: “I thought I needed to stay in the life in name because it was a way to promote my career. I don’t care what the government tells you. I am telling you the truth. I was not involved in the daily activities of this gang. I wasn’t anyone’s boss.

“What I was and I regret this was a person that they could use to promote themselves in a world I swear to you I was trying to leave. I clearly did not do a good enough job of this as I did find myself in one bad situation after another.”

Casanova has been behind bars since December 2020 when he was named as one of 18 alleged Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang members indicted in a sprawling drug conspiracy RICO case.

Despite maintaining his innocence, Cas pleaded guilty to two counts in May 2022: racketeering conspiracy and narcotics conspiracy.

The game ain’t to be played with! I’ve been in prison since February 23, 1999. Y’all better get right and think about what you do before you do it, because “the game” is not a game!
