Philadelphia recording artist and rising star Armani White has released his highly anticipated Def Jam debut, EP Road to Casablanco.
This nine-track project not only captures his journey through a whirlwind year, but also highlights his lyrical prowess and knack for creating captivating hits. With a star-studded lineup of features, including Fivio Foreign, Denzel Curry, A$AP Ferg, and more, Armani White is solidifying his position as one of hip-hop’s most exciting acts.
White’s rising status is in part thanks to 2022 TikTok hit Billie Eilish, which has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify. He intelligently capitalized on the momentum of that track with a remix of the track featuring legends Ludacris and Busta Rhymes. Armani’s wave has continued to grow after releasing single Goated featuring none other than Denzel Curry. Another bouncy, lighthearted, and catchy track, this ability to capture inspiring highs is becoming foundational to White’s rise. Very much in the same light as an artist like Amine.
While BILLIE EILISH and GOATED have propelled Armani White to commercial success, Road to Casablanco demonstrates that he is more than just a creator of catchy hits. Long-term fans of the Philly artist know that strong songwriting and more poignant lyrical tendencies are also in his bag. The new EP highlights his ability to deliver compelling and skillful performances. Solo performances such as No Mistakes and Rob Your Ex exemplify White’s ability to create dynamic soundscapes without a notorious feature. Or viral production.
Through Road to Casablanca, Armani White shows the ability to appeal both to hip-hop heads with thoughtful lyricism, and fans of pop with upbeat anthems. Collaborating with a roster of notable artists adds depth and excitement to the EP. With a continued rise inevitable, the trajectory points toward a 2023 of even more success. White’s signature style, charisma, and engagement with fans on social media set him apart from his peers. His versatility as an emcee shines through in this project, showcasing his potential to become one of hip-hop’s new stars.
