Emmanuel Armoogam, better known by the stage name Hunnid-P, (short for Hunnid Pacent) is an American rapper, singer, and record producer who has done work for the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Armoogram first began his rap career as a protege of record executive and music consultant Steve Lobel, who was previously the manager of rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Sega's record label, Wave Master Records, got in contact with Lobel and requested a recording artist/songwriter for their game Sonic Adventure 2, in which Armoogam accepted. According to an interview, he had only 1 day to write and record all of the tracks. During the recording session, Hunnid stated he was "surrounded by Japanese people", which apparently was not a deterrent.
Hunnid-P performed vocals for Knuckles the Echidna's theme song and stages in Sonic Adventure 2. In 2012, he claimed to be working on a new Sonic game. This was however disproven in 2016, when in an interview with FTCR, he claimed that this was just to get the attention of fans. He also stated during this interview that he would love to do a Sonic Adventure 2 concert for the fans if any Sonic Conventions reached out to him for it. On March 21st, 2014, Hunnid-P was arrested for felony weapon possession. Allegedly, he was released from prison on November 30th, 2015, though he has been inactive on his Google+ page since.
On 7 May 2020, Hunnid-P posted to Twitter calling for Sega to properly compensate him for his work on Sonic Adventure 2, claiming that they had allegedly never actually paid him for his performances in the game. Hunnid also called for his fans to support him on Patreon and Paypal during this time. On 14 July 2020, Twitter user VersaDile posted a tweet questioning the validity of Hunnid's claims, asking about how it was possible when Sega would likely be contractually obligated to pay Hunnid for his work. Chris from FTCR also shed some light on the subject, reminding fans that during his 2016 interview, Hunnid did say he was paid for his work on Sonic Adventure 2.
Sonic fandom singer/voice actress Emi Jones had also released a TwitLonger about Hunnid-P on 14 July 2020, alleging that Hunnid began to extort her for money after initially denying compensation for a collaborative project they had worked on in 2017. She also claims that more recently, Hunnid had even tried to extort her for sex, claiming it was part of their initial deal to collaborate. She also says he had expressed the desire to have sex with her back during the time of the collaboration. Emi also posted related screenshots of texts that Hunnid had sent her in the replies of the TwitLonger tweet.
