"Reframing Public Enemy's uncompromising calls for revolution within a more millennial sonic paradigm, Sun R.A. manages to give political rap its groove back. That's not to be confused with groovy, of course; R.A.'s beats charge from the gates with all the thoroughbred intensity of the [Wu-Tang] Clan's." - Editor, CNet's
"...a highly politicized rapper who manages to convey his ideological leanings in an approachable fashion, without seeming overly highbrow or unnecessarily esoteric." -
"Nothing but the purest hip hop... it's a beautiful thing to see. A master of the political hip hop game.... Speaking nothing but the truth." - DJ Graffiti the Michigan Mixtape King
"One of THE most important rappers of this decade..." - Scart of The Molotov


In early 2013 I will record and release two new full-length albums entitled "You'll Know It When You Flee It" and "Charming Ruins." The beats have been laid, the lyrics have been written. Now I've just got to put it all together.
No gimmicks. No bullshit. Just music. You pitch in and get advance copies of the albums and a few other things in return.
My funding goal will allow me to record these albums and deliver them to all the well-known online distributors (Amazon, iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, etc.).


I've been making music for over a decade. Many have picked up copies of everything I've put out. I can say that these two albums will be among my best work. That's why I want to get them out. The more I'm able to raise, the better quality sounds I can produce.
The most important thing to me is just to get the music out and heard. With your help I'll be able to do that. I very sincerely thank you for parting with your hard-earned money in order to make this a reality.

No money?

If you aren't able to contribute financially, you can still help this campaign by telling your friends, family, and coworkers about it, posting it online, etc.

Indiegogo has some built in tools to help.

That kind of help would also be greatly appreciated. If you truly can't afford any of the options, spread the word about this campaign then hit me up and I will give you copies of the albums for free when they are available.
