Refusing to subscribe to the success-is-only-in-such-and-such-a-big-city mentality plaguing independent artists around the country, Native Sun celebrates raw, honest hip hop on their debut album Step into the Light. The album’s 10 tracks of well-crafted beats and vivid lyricism flow together seamlessly, giving the listener unromanticized tales of the Indianapolis trio’s fight to earn a place as an influential voice in hip hop. Inspired by masters like Pete Rock, Kanye West, Q Tip, Nas and DJ Premier, Step into the Light is definitely for those who favor dope music over name recognition.
