Artist Biography

Armand Hammer is the art rap duo billy woods and ELUCID. Both artists have been in Armand Hammer while still pursuing their solo careers. In 2012, D.C. rapper billy woods dropped his EP History Will Absolve Me with New York’s ELUCID heavily featured on the album. The synergy between the two led them to form Armand Hammer where they pushed each other to experiment with their craft. In 2013, they dropped their first album Race Music which pushed the boundaries of hip-hop sonics by using off-kilter instrumentals and other odd sounds. The next year they dropped the Furtive Movements EP before going on a three-year hiatus. Upon their return in 2017, Armand Hammer released their second album Rome which took a slightly electronic direction and ended up being a critical success, making a few end-of-year lists. Riding this high, the duo released their next album Paraffin in 2018 which also received much critical claim. Since then, Armand Hammer has kept on a steady release schedule including an album that featured the Alchemist. In 2023, they signed to Fat Possum Records for their 2023 album We Buy Diabetic Test Strips which has features from JEPGMAFIA, El-P, and DJ Haram.
