Brooklyn rapper Casanova caught the ears of many last year with his street anthem “Don’t Run.” The record landed the Flatbush-native a deal with Warehouse Music Group/Roc Nation, and an official remix soon followed featuring Young M.A., Fabolous, Dave East and Don Q. Casanova rides off that success, with the release of his debut mixtape, Be Safe Tho.
The project’s title comes from podcast personality Daryl “Taxstone” Campbell, who famously uses the catchphrase on his popular Tax Season podcast. Taxstone, who Casanova credits for breaking “Don’t Run” online, was arrested on gun charges in relation to the Irving Plaza shooting last year that left rapper Troy Ave wounded and his bodyguard (Ronald McPhatter) dead.
Be Safe Tho is 14 tracks, with an appearance by Chris Brown and production by Streetrunner, Jahlil Beats, The Heatmakerz, Reefa, Teddy Da Don, 183RD, and Fortes. Stream and download Here.
