Houston’s Latest Rapper
His name sun is the result of a local DJ who used to call him son and because he is dark friends used to joke about him being burnt by the sun so he changed the “U” to an “O” and carries his blessed dark skin as a badge of honor. After all, the darker the skin the more active the pineal gland (third eye) and the more spiritual one is. Houston is well known for her hip hop “Screw” sound. Is that sound still happening? SUN explains “Oh yeah, screw music is real prevalent now still. With social media and a whole lot of blurred lines music doesn’t really have a specific sound. That’s why Atlanta artist sound like Houston and Houston, Atlanta, New York artists sound like down south. Everybody has a west coast sound so I think its blurred lines with it but we (Houston) still have our screw foundations and definitely our slow pace music tempo.
What is the concept behind his new project which is the term he prefers rather than CD for “The Cause and The Cure?” SUN runs it down, “It is a compete project of all original music that covers every emotional, every characteristic you feel throughout your life, throughout the day whether its sexual, anger, love, whatever it may be and every song has the problem and the solution to it.” Sounds like SUN is drawing from personal experience? He laughs, “Yeah definitely a lot of relationship issues, hustle issues both legal like doing a 9-5 everyday to illegal and the continuous struggle so you don’t have to struggle anymore .” He stresses that every song not only has a solution to the problem but offers a positive outlook and thinks everybody should be able to relate to that.
This is a different concept from the usual violence and inner race name calling so how does SUN address the negative rap that promotes destruction in Black hoods? He says flatly, “It starts with parenting. I’m a parent myself but as entertainers and being public figures including politicians or whatever, if you have some kind of weight with kids I think it is our responsibility to keep that in mind. And at the same time you have a responsibility to do your job to teach your kids at your house to understand what a lot of these artists are doing. I know a lot of them and they are just presenting their lifestyle be it ignorant or not. Entertainers get a bad name for not being better role models but the role model starts at home.
