Black Sun began his music career as J-Fine, a member of the rap trio AMB (After Midnight Boyz) in 1992. In the late 90s, he went solo and changed his name to Black Sun and met with fellow local rhyme-smith Slimm Goines. The two M.C.s collaborated on the track "Real Mc Love" for Mr.Goines debut EP "Notes From The Scribe". He then began recording and doing shows with Ruff Rhyme Records in 2001. Since the release of his long awaited debut album, "Full Eclipse", Black Sun has become one of the brightest and rising stars on the independent Hip-Hop/Rap scene. His hit single "Tonight" (featuring Cristalis) started getting airplay nationwide on Clear Channel owned radio stations, while his other singles(So Whatcha Gotta Say & Higher) have been recently featured on several mixtapes by Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes(Thomas Handsome Presents:Stop Being Stupid Vol. 47 & 70) and various club DJ's.
Black Sun is a member of the D.M.V.(D.C, Maryland and Virginia) area horror-core super group Tha Boogeymen with Slimm Goines, Multiple Man, Relentlezz Dre & producer Big Poppa Nard. They have recently released their first mixtape single, "Ambitionz", a cleverly devised remake of 2Pac's 1996 hit song "Ambitionz Of A Ridah". Their official debut single, "Judgement Day" will hit stores late this year/ early 2014, followed by their debut album "Global Domination". He is also a member of the dynamic hip-hop duo Partyboys with John Dough, dropping the recently released single " Party Up"
Currently, Black Sun is touring the east coast & mid-west to promote his latest hit single and video "So Whatcha Gotta Say" (The DMV Anthem), "Tonight" (featuring Cristalis) and "Higher". He is preparing to release videos for "So Whatcha Gotta Say" (The Remix) featuring fellow DMV rappers J-Mill & Brandeesh, "Tonight" and "Higher". He is also working on his brand new project "The Hollywood Brown EP", his 2nd album " Warrior", various mixtapes and collaborations.
