Mc Armmani Reign, 2002.
After spending six continuous months as 103.9FM’s freestyle champion, MC Armanni decided he needed a change. The cutthroat and ghetto style of the hip hop industry had given Armanni chills and it was time to switch things up.

His introduction to drum and bass was an experience shared by many first timers; Sutpens’ Jungle, February 2000. His first mixtape was “DJ SS live at Sutpen’s Jungle” on which the vocal skills of MC Skibadee gave Armanni insight to the lyrical potential of drum and bass. Sighting MC Skibadee as one of his influences, Armanni has developed a distinctly powerful and diverse style of lyrical delivery which has garnered respect amongst his peers as well many of the top dnb mcs and djs in the World. Staying true to his hip hop roots, Armanni delivers bounce, flavor and lyrical wizardry.

2003 was a fantastic year for MC Armanni. Not only was he nominated Best Breakthrough MC at the Knowledge Drum and Bass awards, Armanni also became the official Metalheadz USA MC. He is undoubtedly the most well known lyricist in drum and bass with his popularity surpassing the once indominatable forces of Skibadee, GQ and Dynamite. With releases already on Freak and Intasound, MC Armanni has set his sights on the grand realm.

Armanni performs with many of the top dnb artists at almost all the top shows. Residencies include Bassrush (LA), Platinum, DJ Series, Heavy Duty, Metalheadz, Ultraworld at Sonar and Destination. He has amazed crowds at the World of Drum and Bass, Electric Daisy Carnival, DJ Series, Starscape, Buzz and Ultra. Armanni tours with the likes of Goldie, Dj Rap, Kenny Ken, Ray Keith, DJ Craze, Dieselboy and is frequently sequestered to mc exclusively for many other top djs in the industry.

As part of the duo, Mental Sharp, MC Armanni ,alongside MC Sharpness, has already released the full length “On and Poppin” with another album scheduled for release on Photek Recordings in 2005. Already, Mental Sharp is burning up dancefloors worldwide with their latest single “Fahrenheit 215”. Thus far, live performances by Mentalsharp have received fantastic reviews and future shows are set to raise the bar even higher.
