SunNY signed to So So Def
“I ain’t chase rap, it was sent to me. On the strength that God gave a gift to me.”Three times is definitely the charm for BET’s seven-time 106 & Park “Freestyle Fridays” champ, SunN.Y. The third time BET asked him to appear on 106 & Park – he was already Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 freestyle
champ – he accepted, and the third time he met star producer and Virgin Records President of Urban Music, Jermaine Dupri, he became the first artist JD signed to the label. Already popular with the 64 million viewers of “106 & Park,” and Atlanta’s four million radio listeners, it’s only fitting that 22-year-old SunN.Y.’s Virgin Records debut is titled OVERNIGHT CELEBRITY. His first single “Introduction” is produced by the Track Boyz (J-Kwon) and its video co- features
the Chad West-produced “Soul Of A Hustler.”Powered by his influences – Beastie Boys, Nas, Jay-Z and Eazy E – SunN.Y. is confident he will continue to stand out. “I represent the battle rapper who can actually make songs,” he assures. “I don’t back down to nobody lyrically. Plus I
got a beautiful track record of not losing.”
Voted people’s champ on both TV and radio by fans all across the U.S., it’s the perfect time for SunN.Y. to put his winning words on wax. “If we ain’t supposed to reach out and twist the world around, what is hip-hop? They didn’t think hip-hop would last, and it’s still here.” And so is SunN.Y.
