NYPD Pressures Rolling Loud To Remove Casanova, Don Q and Others From Concert Lineup

The New York Police Department applied pressure on Rolling Loud festival organizers to remove Pop Smoke, Casanova, 22GZ, Sheff G and Don Q from its lineup. America’s largest police department, which ironically has a notorious history for shooting and killing unarmed men, claims the presence of the rappers will lead to “a higher risk of violence” and “due to public safety concerns.”

The department also accuses the rappers of being “affiliated with recent acts of violence citywide,”

Casanova 2X took to social media in order to comment on the matter.

“I JUST WANNA LIVE. My last felony conviction was 2007. I lost everything I ever loved and I’m STILL losing. So much so that “they” won’t allow me to perform at Rolling Loud NYC on Sunday. It’s unfair and unfortunate that my past, which I’ve dealt with legally and personally, continues to stigmatize me and my career as a recording artist. I’m at war with my past and the scars that they still leave on me everyday. I will continue to fight against biases and advocate for those facing this same issue. I’ll do what do what I plan to make it up to y’all. In the meantime, you can catch me on my Behind These Scars tour or another Rolling Loud in the future. Drop a 👊🏾 if you’re free from the system and drop a ✊🏾 on behalf of friends and family who aren’t. #BehindTheseScars ALBUM OUT NOW.”
