Pop Smoke squashes Casanova beef after being released on bail
The two Brooklyn rappers met for dinner.
Pop Smoke and Casanova met for dinner on Sunday evening (Jan. 19), ending their feud.
“BEFORE WE ATE WE GOT SOMETHING OFF OUR CHEST,” Casanova captioned a photo of the two Brooklyn rappers playfully wrestling at a restaurant. “WHO YALL THINK WON?”
The Casanova and Pop Smoke beef escalated last week, with the release of Pop’s “Cristopher Walking” single. Besides deeming himself the “King of New York,” Pop also referred to Casanova as “Trashanova” in an Instagrammed teaser clip for the song’s accompanying music video.
“YALL OLD NI**AS BETTER PACK IT UP,” he wrote in the post. “THIS AINT NO TRASHANOVA SH*T. NO SCARY L SH*T. YALL KNOW THE WOOS RUN THE CITY.”
Prior to this, Casanova has accused the “GATTI” rapper of stealing his phrases and responded to Pop’s claims by tweeting that “nobody runs New York.”
However, fans and fellow rappers were happy to see that the two Brooklynites were able to make amends before the beef became too serious.
Meek Mill applauded their efforts, commenting “G sh*t” on Casanova’s post.
“Brooklyn won,” one fan added.
“Pop Smoke & Casanova peace it out.. ‘Can’t Tear A Black Man Down 2020,’” another fan tweeted.
The dinner meeting also marked Pop’s first public appearance since being arrested on Friday (Jan. 17). The rapper was charged with interstate transportation of a stolen motor vehicle and is accused of driving a stolen Rolls Royce Wraith from California to New York. The car was allegedly meant to be borrowed for a music video, but never returned to its owner.
Even during the peak of their beef, Casanova showed support for Pop after his arrest.
“FREE POP SMOKE I DONT WISH JAIL ON NO MAN,” he tweeted. “YEA I KNOW HE CALL ME TRASH A NOVA WHEN I CATCH HIM IM GONNA KNOCK HIS TEET OUT.. UNTIL THEN BROOKLYN FOREVER.”
Fans also noted that Casanova even led a “Free Pop” chant during one of his shows.
According to Complex, Smoke pleaded not guilty to his charge and is currently out on bail. He’s set to appear in court on Feb. 3. If he is found guilty, he could face up to 10 years of imprisonment.
