Casanova 2X may not have started out wanting to be a rapper, but he amazingly found success after just five months of getting into the game. When explaining the process of becoming famous, Casanova reveals that he didn’t know anything about rapping or counting bars before going in the studio for the first time, which is where he heard the “Don’t Run” beat; he admits that he didn’t even know that rappers are supposed to bring their own beats to the studio.

Moving along, Casanova releases the song on Instagram and SoundCloud, where it blew up into a monster hit. To hear more of what Casanova had to say on the situation, including saving A$AP Rocky’s life in jail, hit the above clip.
