Vevo, the world’s leading music video network released the complete list for its highly anticipated Vevo “DSCVR Artists to Watch” 2023 session. The movement showcases high-quality live performance video content from the class of 2023.
Vevo’s Artists to Watch content will also see the official launch of a brand-new DSCVR set designed to help artists express themselves in new and interesting ways through visually striking elements like new entry points, columns, corridors, archways, and windows. Highlighted from the class of 2023 is Armani White, a 26-year-old energetically profound rapper who grew up in a troubled home in West Philadelphia. This year, his “BILLIE EILISH.” single went viral on TikTok, landing Armani a fresh deal with Def Jam Records.

“VEVO Artist To Watch has a history of being one of those platforms that almost always calls out the next stars early. To be among that is an honor and a challenge I’m gratefully accepting.” – Armani White happily stated
Armani White wants to trademark happy hood music. Pairing dexterous flows with dense introspection and spurts of impassioned melodies. He found healing in beats and bars, soaking up the sounds and pantomiming the art of his favorite MCs. Eventually, music became his therapy. After finishing high school, where he’d won both Class Clown and Most Likely to Be Heard a Mile Away for his school yearbook, the idea of a rap career began to crystallize.

“After spending the last few years refining his craft, Armani White has been showing the world exactly what a dynamic artist looks like. His vivid storytelling is earnest and energetic. Whether freestyling while getting his hair braided, or shining on our DSCVR stage, he leaves nothing on the table. The rising MC has lived many lives and none without adversity. We can’t wait to see the one unfolding as he becomes the star he’s destined to be.” – stated Jordan Ferree, Manager, Artist & Label Relations
In 2015, Armani earned attention from “Stick Up,” a pulsing boom bap single coated in braggadocio and comical flashes of danger. Later, he released “Keep in Touch,” a project that reaffirmed his all-around songwriting abilities and saw him hit the stage touring with the likes of Vince Staples, Nas, James Blake, and Aminé. He continued to elevate with “Things We Lost In The Fire,” a heartfelt EP that addressed personal tragedy with unflinching transparency.
