A fresh Hip-Hop track to cel­eb­rate good ol fash­ion New York swag, we intro­duce the first true com­mer­cial release from Sun [the MC]! A col­lab­or­a­tion with pro­du­cer Moo Latte, this track draws influ­ence from that early 90’s boom-bap vibe. We love to hear it! The song itself is one of self-real­iz­a­tion, and act­iv­ism with flow and depth of lyr­ic­al mean­ing. ‘My influ­ences are from spir­itu­al texts and lead­ers but I’m all about hav­ing a good time as well.’ With an ador­a­tion for Hip-Hop, Sun [the MC]‘s goal is to con­vey spir­itu­al con­cepts, pos­it­iv­ity and human vul­ner­ab­il­ity through his music! For fans of Jay‑Z, J. Cole and A Tribe Called Quest, Sun [the MC] adds him­self to the list of ‘New York’s Finest’.

Sun [the MC], is a New York-born and based MC who com­bines con­cepts of self-real­iz­a­tion and con­scious­ness with upbeat vibes that flow through his lyr­ics and music.  Sun began writ­ing poetry in his early years, shift­ing his focus to hip-hop in high school and col­lege. Per­form­ing took a back seat but Sun nev­er stopped writ­ing and began record­ing in the 2010s over well-known tracks across hip-hop and oth­er glob­al genres. His friend­ships with DJs and pro­du­cers allowed him to choose his beats and estab­lish his pres­ence as an inde­pend­ent artist, res­ult­ing in a deep cata­log of music. Sun [the MC] blends word­play with spir­itu­al wis­dom jux­ta­posed with liv­ing in a soci­ety that has highs and lows, from cel­eb­rat­ing life and hip-hop bravado, to both good and bad romantic rela­tion­ships, to the real­it­ies of social injustice. He encour­ages achieve­ment and being the best ver­sion of ourselves through authen­ti­city and self-dis­cip­line, while acknow­ledging that there is a great­er depth to exist­ence than meets the eye in this worldly dimen­sion. His first EP, Sun­rise, dropped in 2011 on Sound­Cloud, fol­lowed by Louis XIV — Era of the Sun (2013), Unleash the Mind (2014), and Unleash the Mind II (2015), and a num­ber of singles in 2020. Suraj plans to re-record / remix sev­er­al of these tracks for com­mer­cial release, in addi­tion to a lot of ori­gin­al new music, over the com­ing months!
