Rapper Casanova Charged With Racketeering In SDNY As Kooda B Sentenced Barclays Echo

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 1 –   On the day Tekashi #6ix9ine co-defendant Kooda B was sentenced to 54 months in prison for arranging a shooting at Chief Keef, fellow rapper Caswell Senior or Casanova along with 17 others was charged with racketeering.  Inner City Press will also cover this case.   

Readers may remember that the Barclays Center shooting that #6ix9ine and his co-defendants were charged with involved or targeted Casanova. Inner City Press tweeted video here.

The US Attorney's Office annouced that the gang "committed terrible acts of violence, trafficked in narcotics, and even engaged in brazen fraud by exploiting benefits programs meant to provide assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Because of that, communities across the Southern District – from Poughkeepsie to Peekskill to New York City – suffered."   

Casanova is barely mentioned in the announcement, and is charged in the Complaint in Count 1, Racketeering, Count 13 (narcotics) and Count 14 (firearms).

 Given that Kooda B / Kintea McKinzie's music videos, with red bandanas, were used against him, Inner City Press wonders what may be cited in this case.

The case is US v. Reid, et al., 20-cr-626 (Halpern).
