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.
