After releasing two big global hits in “Billie Eilish” and “GOATED”, Armani White proves he has staying power with new EP Road to CASABLONCO.
Philadelphia native and viral hitmaker Armani White recently released his anticipated EP Road To CASABLONCO. After releasing viral Tik Tok hits like “Billie Eilish” and “GOATED” which have over 250 million and 20 streams on Spotify respectively, it was left to see whether White is just a Tik Tok hitmaker or an artist who can put together a proper body of work and be around for a long time. Well, he answered that with the new project.
Prior to its release, White revealed he was inspired by artists like Travis Scott who was able to create a whole world called Astroworld that was a nod to his hometown. CASABLONCO, which obviously draws inspiration from his name, is a glimpse into his world as he reveals different sides of himself.
Aside from the two previously released hits, the EP has heartfelt songs, including the “Proud Of You” intro which features a message from his grandmother, and “Proud Of Me” dedicated to his father who he lost to prostate cancer in 2016. He also goes back to his roots in the hood on “Rob Your Ex” where he talks to his girl about robbing her ex. Pretty straight forward.
He also gives us big tracks and big features ushering him into another level of stardom. The EP bridges eras by including big bangers featuring fellow tri-state area rappers Fivio Foreign and A$AP Ferg, as well as Ludacris, Busta Rhymes and N.O.R.E. who appear on the Legends Remix of “Billie Eillish”.
Overall, Road To CASABLONCO is a taste of the different sides of who Armani White is and allows to get to know more about him in a personal way. While he has big viral global hits, under his belt if you’ve had the chance to interview him, hear him speak about his artistry, or watch him perform, you know he’s an artist who puts his heart into his music and cares about what he puts out. He’s also an artist who is not only engaging and relatable with his fans, but does a good job of creating new ones, which along with his music and ability to put together great performances, means we has what it takes to be around for a very long time.
