Philly's Rockstar - Robbie Casablanca
Never judge a book by its cover and especially with Robbie. Musicially he draws heavily on rock acts like Pearl Jam, Tool, Nirvana, The Sex Pistols and Red Hot Chilli Peppers to name a few. Yes you do hear the hip-hop flavor but his influence is so rock infused that when you see him live you'll understand no rapper on the scene is like him today.
One of his mis popular singles entitled "Sushi" is a crowd favorite. Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek has rocked out to this tune and the ever wonderful Miley Cyrus even tweeted about the song. The music is amazing but the live performances are second to none. At first glance you may stereotype this artist as the typical "rapper" but his lyricism and performances are far beyond and outside the box of what you have ever experienced before.
Robbie Casablanca is hands dow one of the top up and coming acts out of Philadelphia. RobbieCas has been featured on hiphopsince1987.com and has been a prior nominee for the Philly Hip-Hop awards. His latest music video entitled "Level III" with fellow artist Sanity is nothing but fire (check out the video below).
