Hailing from Brooklyn, rapper Casanova just dropped his debut mixtape Be Safe Tho after a few different leaks, include the intro track that tributes his incarcerated friend Taxstone. The 11-track project includes only one feature from Chris Brown & LO on "OHB," which is a mixtape stand out.
In true New York City style, Casanova picks some classic beats for this one, including Jay Z's "Song Cry." Rappers don't take on other emcees' beats anymore, but Casanova doesn't shy away from the greats. He aggressive lyricism is vaguely reminiscent of another Brooklyn native: Busta Rhymes. If Casanova's career trajectory is anything like Busta's, he has a lot to look forward to.
