      News — Casanova

      Casanova: My Watch Was $120,000‼😲

      Casanova: My Watch Was $120,000‼😲

      Hailing from Brooklyn is Biggie, Jay Z, Fabolous… then Casanova. Born and raised in Flatbush, the East Coast spitter puts on for his city like no other. Not only is he a walking testimony to all those who come from the mud, he proves even the most impossible dreams can be made a reality.


       

      Regardless of what he’s endured in his lifetime, Cas puts it all into his music. With that comes relentless bars, punchlines, and storytelling in a bold and aggressive manner that audiences can’t help listen. Currently signed to Roc Nation, real name Caswell Senior recently put out a project titled Behind These Scars, spearheaded by lead single “So Brooklyn” featuring Fabolous. 


      King Ice caught up with Casanova in his few days in Los Angeles to chat about his jewelry preferences, the most iconic chain in his opinion, and his legacy.


      What’s the most expensive piece of jewelry you own?

      My watch, $120,000 for a Patek Philippe. 


      Did you treat yourself?

      Yes, definitely. I don’t think nobody’s going to buy that for me. 


      How would you describe your style as it relates to jewelry?

      My style is flashy. Flashy and aggressive, that’s about it.


      I’m surprised you don’t have any VVS’s on your teeth.

      Nahhh, I like my teeth. I think that’s a down South thing. It came from The Hot Boyz, “Bling Bling.” Remember back in the day? I could probably do it, but I don’t like how people be talking. 


      Nuh uh, I ain’t with it.


      Which record label had the most iconic chain in your opinion?

      Roc-A-Fella, definitely. Not Roc Nation, Roc-A-Fella. Because that’s when I was growing up but also... I ain’t going to front, Biggie and Puff did do it. They did do it. They did it. They paved the way for me, then it was Roc-A-Fella. Then it was Death Row, Hot Boyz. So I’d have to go with Bad Boys first. 


      What do you want your legacy to be?

      I want people to understand that it’s okay to be real. It’s okay to mess up. I just want people to respect me as an artist. A transformed convict. I just want to give people a chance to see they can make it.

      Hood Celebrity, Davido, Busy Signal & Bunji Garlin Lit Up #BigBadBBQ in Brooklyn

      It’s BBQ season in New York City, but nobody does it bigger than Jay Upscale.

      Every year, Jay - who has organized some of the biggest shows in New York and the Caribbean islands - books some of the biggest names in Caribbean music. And this year’s BBQ was no different. Taking place on 4th of July, Coney Island’s iconic Art Walls was at capacity for the festivities, as we celebrated the culture and music of the islands. 

      Hood Celebrityy, Nessa Preppy, Davido, Casanova, Busy Signal and headliner, Bunji Garlin, set the stage ablaze with an eclectic mix of Afrobeats, Dancehall, Reggae and Soca. From mid-day to sunset, the crowd danced away the holiday for nearly six hours straight.

      Spotted on some of the performers, of course, were some notable pieces of ice. Check out the photos below and recap video.
