Aramis616

Grand Rapids, MI
Johnny Moody (AKA Aramis616) is a Hip Hop recording artist out of Grand Rap...ids, MI. Aramis616 began getting into music at a young age, but had no idea he would eventually become an artist himself until reaching middle school. It was there, when he started listening to a lot of underground rock and hip hop. What started off as a simple hobby, ended up turning into a deep passion that he could not let go of. Using a cheap PC mic and recording software, he began recording his own songs and posting them online. It would be several years down the line before he would perform his first show. Aramis616 (then known as Aramis) dropped his debut album, Sleight of Hand, on January 20th 2015. He has been making his mark in both Underground and Nerdcore Hip Hop music scenes ever since.
