We have had our sights on Armani White for a while now, just waiting for him to blow up. This Philly rapper is criminally underrated, but with this new EP out, that may change. He dropped Things We Lost In The Fire over the weekend, and it is a poignant and impassioned collection of stories about his struggles in life.
Armani White is a poignant lyricist with a painful narrative that tugs at your heartstrings. On this EP, he explores the raw emotions of losing multiple loved ones in fires. “Too Many Angels” and “RIP Melinda” are the heavier and more somber tracks, where his grief is laid out over the achingly beautiful piano and acoustic guitar. For the other tracks, he takes hot hip-hop production and adds a soulful vibe, with outstanding saxophone on “Watch Yourself” and a gospel sound on “Grateful”.
