1. What is the meaning behind your rap name? Where did it come from and why did you choose it?
The meaning behind my name is a tricky one. My original name was just initially Raysun. Then after years of using that name in the underground rap world, i found out that someone had the name Trademarked already and it was in use. So i had to come up with something else. I really didnt want just any plain name. I like metaphores…so i wanted my new name to be symbolic. I was always intrigued with the movie called The Matrix. I like what Neo stood for. He stood for balance. If you notice in the movie, Neo didn’t try to take over the matrix, he simply was just trying to restore balance. Well that’s what today’s Rap Game needs….”balance”. Today rappers are focused on the wrong shit. Lets keep it really real. I mean, its ok to want the money, cars, house, jewelry, and women…but when you are ONLY FOCUSED ON THOSE THINGS, is when its a problem. In the movie, Neo was referred to as “the one”. Neo was “the one” that was to bring back order and thats how i got my name Raysun The One.
2. How long you been in the game for?
I been in the rap game for just a little over 4 years…but i been rapping for over 10 years.
3. How did you get into the game?
I got into the rap game with the help of a friend of mine name Flipstyle. Check him out in facebook. He was also my first manager. he was the one that introduced me to some Wu-tang Affiliates and got me started with my real underground career. and every since then….i been doing big things. Shout out to flipstyle.
4. So why do you rap? Is it like a hobby or a career move?
Ya know,,,, you hear alot of rappers say “this is just a hobby for me” and blah, blah,blah, They are lying thru their teeth. If you are in the rap industry ….this is not a hobby. This is a career move. and the ones that do take this as a hobby….never make it!!!
5. Who inspires you/Who is your favorite rapper?
My rap inspiration to this day is still Wu-Tang. always have been and always will be but i do have other inspirations as well. Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kanye, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Twista, Crucial Conflict, Psycho Drama, …basically the all of chicago hip hop.
6. What are you trying to bring to the game?
I’m trying to bring back balance back to the game. Its too many people copying each others music. Rap sounds dull right now. Everybody sounds the same. I wanna put some color back in this black and white picture. Its too much bullshit rap. but just like Neo said…”Everything that has a beginning, has an ending”.
7. What’s your favorite song or project you ever came out with?
I have so many songs ang wrote so many raps, its hard to say which one i like the best. I keep evolving. i get better every day. I probably havent even made my favorite song yet. LOL!!!
8. You got any projects coming out in the near future? If so, what are they?
I got 2 mixtapes out right now…..one of them is called “Reloaded” and the other one is “The Red Pill. The Red Pill is the latest on i put out this year. Reloaded i released 2 years ago but you can find both downloads on Wu-Tang Website
