MOD SUN's mission statement is very clear, choose to be happy. He refers to his genre of music as "Hippy Hop" and describes his sound as an audible smile.

"Movement on dreams stand under none, even my name stands for something," says 26-year-old MOD SUN. This independent artist, whose motto is "no fans, just friends," has truly solidified his name in the hip-hop scene over the past three years.Mod drastically turned heads in 2011 when he was chosen by Rolling Stone magazine as 1 of the top 16 unsigned artists in the world.

He was than entered into a contest to become the first unsigned artist to ever appear on the coveted cover of the magazine. That year Mod's music video for his song, "Same Way", exploded on YouTube earning more than 350,000 views. Mod has shared the stage with a dozens of national acts including Shwayze, Chiodos, Breathe Carolina and even rap legends Wu Tang Clan.Growing up in Bloomington, Minnesota he was never a stranger to the music business.

Mod began touring nationally at 17 and by age 21 he had already toured the world playing drums for two successful rock bands, Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Four Letter Lie. In the peak of these bands success, Mod decided to pursue a career as a fulltime emcee. In a span of 3 years MOD SUN has released over 100 songs and all but 10 of them for free. His latest mixtape "Blazed By The Bell" hosted by DJ ill Will & DJ Rock Star received over 40,000 downloads in its first month of release.

The project featured artists such as The Ready Set, Nipsey Hussle, ScHoolBoy Q, & even an appearance by the real "Mr. Belding" Dennis Haskins. MOD SUN is a walking talking affirmation to the power of positive thinking. Right now he is somewhere smiling and he wants the same for you.
