#5 – Armani White 

Performing Sunday, September 4th

Armani White is a 25 year old rapper out of West Philadelphia. Recently, he has been blowing up over his viral song “BILLIE EILISH.” which became a transition trend on TikTok. Fans begged Armani to release the full song but at the time he didn’t have clearance to do so. Billie Eilish and her fanbase started reposting the TikToks that used his song and he quickly became a sensation. He has since released the full sample and is now signed with Def Jam. Here are some songs to check out from Armani:

At Governers Ball 2022 he was brought out on stage by headliner J.Cole to perform their single “Sticks” together.  JID’s stage name comes from his grandmother’s nickname for him based on his jittery behavior and if you’ve ever listened to the song sticks – you’ll completely understand.

#3 – Lil Uzi Vert

Performing Saturday, September 3rd

Lil Uzi Vert is a 27 year old rapper out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their preferred pronouns are They/Them. They started gaining attention with the release of their mixtape, Luv Is Rage, in 2015 and has been all over the Billboard Hot 100 ever since. They describe their sound as rock mixed with hip-hop and R&B. In my opinion, Lil Uzi Vert is one of the most unique artists of our time from their androginous clothes to crazy hairstyles to installing a giant 24 million dollar diamond right in the middle of their forehead.  As Lil Uzi Vert says “I cannot die because this is my universe” and I for one am happy to exist in it.
