Anu Sun's video, Soul Brother, is a refreshing portrait of hip-hop's
maturation using a canvas of color and percussion --
"Anu-Sun can write very well. Hes all about delivering smoothed out styles with a jazzy/funky flair, and he throws out a few rock samples for something different."--
"Anu-Sun traces the history of Black music to bridge its seemingly fragmented parts. The result is an coherent blend of jazz, soul and hip-hop that can truly be appreciated by music connoisseurs."--
