Johnny Moody (AKA Aramis) is a Hip Hop recording artist out of Grand Rapids, MI. Aramis 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, where 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. Growing up listening to artists like Coolio, Busta Rhymes, Dj Quik, TLC, and a slew of others, Aramis began to subconsciously start creating his own rhymes. After coming across a particular internet forum where he saw other up and coming artists posting their recordings, he decided to do the same. 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. During this period of his life he met a young Florida-based rapper named David Campbell (AKA STRAT). Though never meeting physically, the two considered each other to be good friends, and ended up collaborating on quite a few tracks. Aramis Looked up to STRAT not only because of his talent as an artist, but because he was genuinely good person. STRAT ended up taking his own life in mid 2008. Even though this deeply saddened Aramis, he vowed to push his music career as far he he could for himself, and to also honor his late friend. Aramis would then go on to compete in various rap battles and tournaments during which time he honed his skills and increased his knowledge of sound engineering and production. Aramis dropped his first solo project, The Black Adam Mixtape, in June 2013; he has been making his mark in both Underground and Nerdcore Hip Hop music scenes ever since. Aramis’ latest project, Virtuoso was released on 4/25/2017. He is currently working on next project, which is scheduled to be completed and released at the end of this year.
