Native Sun members B Young (emcee), B Meeks (bass) and Sleepy (drums) have created a unique sound that hails back to the origins of hip hop. By fusing live music, smooth lyrics and unexpected beats usually not associated with hip hop, the group channels memories of early hip hop turntablists and emcees who created slick rhymes over house beats to create a new style. Native Sun promises to stand out from the sounds and lyricism of what’s currently trending in commercial hip hop with a message that’s relevant and relatable to music fans and aspiring artists everywhere.
Burden of Proof is the second single the trio has released from their upcoming EP, Undeniable, and focuses on the responsibility of emcees to bring a message to their listeners. After the strong reception their first album Step Into The Light received, the group is poised for the national stage. Since their formation in 2008, Native Sun has become a staple in the Indianapolis live music scene as well as toured extensively across the Midwest. Notable performances include stage appearances with Elzhi (formally of Slum Village), DJ Logic and opening for artists such as Foreign Exchange, Musiq Soulchild, Mayer Hawthorne, Black Milk, Nappy Roots and Muhsinah. Now, Native Sun is taking their brand of hip hop on the road with performances outside of the Midwest, including a performance at New York’s iconic Bowery Electric.
