New York rapper Casanova 2x isn’t here for the e-beefing. The hip-hop rookie has come forward to defend not having smoke for overnight rap rival Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Casa went to Instagram this week and said his past served jail time and current parole would not allow him to get caught up in a nasty situation.

This week, footage surfaced of Tekashi publicly blasting Casanova during a live concert.

Over the past few days, tensions have appeared to only rise between Casa and Tekashi.

There were unverified rumors earlier this week that some people affiliated with Tekashi tried to rob Casanova, which was fueled further after a video surfaced of Casanova facing off with a group of guys dressed in red. Casanova also released a video called “Set Trippin,” which many believed was a diss track aimed at Tekashi. Many felt the line “If you want smoke ain’t nothing we gotta speak ’bout/See you with that red flag on what that be bout?” was aimed specifically at Tekashi. (VLAD TV)
