Casanova 2x or 2 times, an artist with a lot of hype at the moment drafts in some of the biggest and brightest names at present in the New York Hip Hop resurgence movement, and also enlists an OG’S help for a monster remix to his biggest single to date. 

“Dont Run” listen here.

Casanova hailing from Flat Bush in Brooklyn New York is poised to be one of the artist’s to watch in 2017, while Young M.A. arguably was the stand out newcomer of 2016, her smash hit single “Ouuuuu” now has over 199 million views on YouTube.

The Brooklyn femcee gives a strong verse on an agressive snare heavy boom bap production, once again bringing the gritty New York feeling back of the early G-unit days. Harlem Globe trotter Dave East is mister consistent yet again and serves up another 16 bars fans are accustomed to hearing from him. Another newcomer Don Q keeps the energy up with his verse and holds his own while the veteran, Fabolous steals the show on the track and is his usual clever and witty self with bars like.

“had to call Cass like bro (whatup bro), heard n**gas want book me for my watch,(n**gas plotting??)  he said nah it’s a phillipe for a show (ohhh)  ….n**gas tryna book you for a watch” – Fabolous.

I love clever lines, my favourite type of bars are ones that make you rewind again and catch different parts of the verse you may have missed. Fabolous in this verse is showing he still has quips and wit in abundance and can still contend, and even outshine the youth to this day.

Anyway check out the track and let me know what you think.
– Phil.
