    After a flurry of mixtapes released during the 2010-2012 season, Richmond, California-based rapper and producer IAMSU! hit in 2013 with the single "Let Go". Born Sudan Ahmeer Williams, the rapper kicked off his career in 2010 under the name Su. In 2011 he joined 50 Cent and LoveRance on the hit single "Up". In 2012 he decide to monetize his previously free work, moving all his mixtapes to download services. Wiz Khalifa, Juvenile, and frequent collaborator Problem joined as special guests on his 2012 mixtape Suzy 6 Speed, while 2013 saw him return to the world of underground and free with the mixtape Kilt II. The single "Let Go" dropped later that year with guest vocalist Tank. Plans for a debut album entitled Sincerely Yours were announced in early 2014, and the album released in April of that year. The leadoff single from the album, "Only That Real", featured guest spots from Sage the Gemini and 2 Chainz. His newest album, Kilt III, released March, 2016 and is available now on iTunes.

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.

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.
