Before she even dropped her debut project, Griselda’s First Lady Armani Caesar received a “Best Rap Verse of 2020” nod from Complex for her contribution (“Lil Cease”) to Westside Gunn’s Flygod Is An Awesome God 2.
Armani’s Griselda debut project, The Liz (2020), was met with immediate press and fan acclaim and the project was highlighted by esteemed press outlets such as Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Complex, Fader, Stereogum, Hypebeast, CoS, XXL, HNHH, Uproxx, DJbooth, Forbes and NPR just to name a few. The Liz featured appearances from Griselda’s core (Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine) and production from DJ Premier, Camouflage Monk and 808 Mafia.
Since The Liz was released, Armani has raised her profile exponentially, ripping guest verses on Westside Gunn’s the aforementioned Flygod Is An Awesome God 2 (“Lil Cease”), his Shady Records debut Who Made The Sunshine (“Liz Loves Luger” & “98 Sabers” Feat Conway The Machine & Benny The Butcher) and #HWH8 (“Forest Lawn” which also featured 2 Chainz), Conway The Machine’s From King To A GOD (“Anza”), two songs on Griselda’s Conflicted Official Music Soundtrack (“Mission Accomplished” with Westside Gunn, Conway & Benny & her solo offering (“Nerve Of You”) and most recently with her fellow 716 queen Che Noir’s Food For Thought (“Ladies Brunch”). Armani also performed standout sets at Coachella (both weeks), Rolling Loud (NYC, Miami & LA), Made In America Festival, Day In Vegas and Art Basel.
Now, #ARMANISZN is officially here. After announcing her upcoming sophomore album, The Liz 2, with “Hunnit Dolla Hiccup” featuring Benny The Butcher & Stove God Cooks, Armani and Westside Gunn are cooking again with the album’s second single and visual for “Paula Deen.”
While The Liz officially put Armani Caesar on the map, The Liz 2 will make her a star.
Armani Caesar’s The Liz 2 will be released on 10-21-22 via Griselda/GXFR Records.
