Original Story: Rapper Casanova (real name Caswell Senior ) is not self isolating amidst the coronavirus pandemic. On Saturday (March 22nd), the 33-year-old rapper announced on social media that he was shooting a video on New York’s Flatbush neighborhood. He shared footage of his mother trying to prevent him from being outside. See the clip.
After a warning from his mother, he appears to have continued with the video shoot, as he congregated with friends for the video. At some point, the police show up, forcing him to stop the video. See the video.
