He was than entered into a contest to become the first unsigned artist to ever appear on the coveted cover of the magazine. That year Mod’s music video for his song, “Same Way”, exploded on YouTube earning more than 350,000 views. Mod has shared the stage with a dozens of national acts including Shwayze, Chiodos, Breathe Carolina and even rap legends Wu Tang Clan.Growing up in Bloomington, Minnesota he was never a stranger to the music business.

Mod began touring nationally at 17 and by age 21 he had already toured the world playing drums for two successful rock bands, Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Four Letter Lie. In the peak of these bands success, Mod decided to pursue a career as a fulltime emcee. In a span of 3 years MOD SUN has released over 100 songs and all but 10 of them for free.
