Brooklyn rapper Casanova was reportedly recently slashed in the face with a blade during an altercation behind bars.


The 36-year-old ‘Set Trippin’ rapper, who is awaiting his sentencing date and facing the possibility of up to 60 years in prison after being found guilty on charges relating to a RICO (racketeering) arrest, was reportedly cut by another inmate named Ulysses Lugo during a fight.

Local news station NBC4 New York broke the story first, claiming the incident happened during a confrontation where Cas is being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in New Jersey. Check out the coverage for yourself here:

Eyewitnesses to the incident have described Casanova allegedly pursuing his assailant with a “bloodied” face and retaliating by allegedly slashing the other man’s face with a blade.

Some media outlets have claimed the incident is connected to Casanova recently revealing his desire to renounce his ties with the Gorilla Stone Blood gang, but so far this rumor is totally unconfirmed.
