Name: Mod Sun

Age: 25

Where I’m From: Bloomington, MN

My style and/or skills have been compared to: The soul of Jim Morrison & Bob Dylan remixed with the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest and Sublime.

My standout records and/or moments have been: My most popular records are “Tye Dye Everything” ft. ScHoolboy Q, “Happy As Fu*k”, & “What’s Ya Life Like” ft. Nipsey Hu$$le. Standout accomplishments besides being featured by XXL (thank you!) would be when I was selected as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 15 unsigned artists in the world and performing at every show on The Warped Tour this summer!

I’m gonna change the game by: Positivity. My name MOD SUN stands for, Movement On Dreams Stand Under None. I devoted my life to helping people empower themselves, and I feel that everyday you wake up is a reason to celebrate. I have made the smile audible.

I’d Like to Work With: 9th Wonder, Bone Thugs, M.I.A., Kid Cudi and I still wanna work with Charles Hamilton even though he got lost.

My goal in hip-hop is: To INSPIRE! I encourage everyone to make their mentality a reality. Life is not hard, everything is easy, some things just take longer than others. Stay focused.

I’m gonna be the next: Person to spark a real revolution. My true goal is to get the entire world to smile at the same time for 10 seconds.

  • FUCKSUN

    HOW THE FUCK DOES THIS DUDE GET PUT ON LIKE THAT!? HES A FUCKING HIPPY WHITE GUY FROM BLOOMINGTON MINNE-FUCKING-SOTA THAT HAS RICH PARENTS…. WTF DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH RAP?!!?!!?

    • M.Brenn

      So, rappers nowadays have to be exclusively non-white and poor? Last time I saw, rappers are raking in mad cash… whereas MOD SUN does it all on his own.

      So what if he’s white and a hippie? Listen to his stuff without judging first. At least he raps about something other than being in the club and all the money you have.

      • FUCKSUN

        WHEN YOUR DADDY PAYS FOR EVERYTHING YOU “ACCOMPLISHED” IM PRETTY SURE THATS EXACTLY WHATS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY/INDUSTRY AT THE MOMENT AND THINK WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT SHIT. TALENT NEEDS TO BE MEASURED WITH TALENT NOT FUCKING MOMMY AND DADDYS MONEY. GO FUCK YOURSELF M.BRENN YOU DONT KNOW SHIT! ITS EASY TO GET MONEY AND HAVE PEOPLE DO IT ALL FOR YOU. ITS SOMETHING ELSE WHEN YOUR 100% ORGANIC AND YOU MAKE IT CAUSE YOU’VE HUSTLED YOUR ASS OFF. THIS KID BLOW UP IN 1 YEAR, HE STARTED RAPPIN 6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THAT. HOW THE FUCK IS THAT TALENT & HUSTLE!?

        • M.Brenn

          Let me ask you: do you know his family personally? No? Okay, so shut up with the mommy/daddy talk. You are the one that doesn’t know shit.

          He’s been working hard since high school. Want to know why I know that? I went to school with him.
          Right place, right time. Some people are just fortunate to be found.

          You sound like a butt-hurt wannabe, and you’re not making your case sound any better.

          Bro…I’m sorry, but I’d like to share some facts with you. Mod does not come from money – at all. His parents are divorced (and hippies, like him), he went to a shitty public high school just like all the rest of us, etc…You say, “It’s something else when your 100% organic and you make it cause you’ve hustled your ass off”??? That’s absolutely what Mod did, so you just complimented him – nice ‘hate’.

          Also, if you ARE curious how he “made it” so quickly (which to be perfectly honest, he wouldn’t even CONSIDER saying he’s “made it” yet), it’s because of Four Letter Lie and Scary Kids Scaring Kids. He was drumming in those bands and made a shit ton of friends in the industry because, oh, I don’t know, he’s a genuinely likeable dude! That’s how he opened for SKSK in Australia, that’s how he booked Warped Tour, that’s how people get places homie – relationships. Relationships with homies like Nipsey, Mims, ScHoolboy, The Ready Set, and Shwayze – they wouldn’t be fuckin with Mod if they didn’t believe in him and his message, but then again, they know him, and you don’t.

          So, please, hate all you want under false pretenses. The most important piece of information I hope you take away from this comment is that Mod has absolutely no hate for you – in fact, in his mind, you’re his friend. He fuckin loves you just like he loves everybody else. Try smiling a bit more, you’ll feel better.

          All my best,
          A friend

    Mod Sun always makes my day better. He’s just an overall awesome dude.

  • Lindsay

    I dig the positivity vibe. Keep it up. :)

  • KylefromTexas

    MOD SUN is the shit! If you don’t like him, thats fine. I dont care if he comes from money or not, he certainty doesn’t rap about it. He does have one song about money, called “doesn’t mean anything.” However, it is about being happy without money having anything to do with it.

  • theecryses

    what is this some Disney channel

  • haterade

    wow this dude really sucks

  • haterade

    FVCK really this sucks i dont understand how u ppl like it ima get ma hate on right now… it isnt cuz hes white, it isnt cuz he was rich b4 (dont even kno if thas tru nd i dont give a fck) it is a little bit because he said he was the soul of jim morrison and bob dylan (c’mon, seriously? WTFFFF) and dared compare himself to tribe too…… + i just generally dislike the music…
    sorry 4 being a hater but u made it kinda easy

  • MPLS

    Im from MN and I think he’s dope and a nice dude. I do think since he “blew up” he has definitely changed though. Before he would respond to fans emails, etc. Now he dont even try to respond like he’s too good. Still no hate tho. I think the guy below was just having a bad day or something ;P
