Supreme Sun was raised in Asbury Park, NJ. He often spoke about his youth, love of visiting the boardwalk, and eating fries while enjoying his time at Palace Amusements, a historical indoor amusement park in Asbury Park.
Supreme Sun was bred in The Nation of Gods and Earths, and he diligently strove to apply the lessons and principals to his walk of Life. As a young boy he would watch and admire his brother and uncle’s musical skills. At the age of nine Supreme wrote his first rhyme right after Weeshon gave him his first beat. Supreme grew into his craft and developed a mind of managing at a young age.
When he was a teenager, Supreme Sun arranged opportunities for himself and others to showcase their talents to the main stream industry. He had connected people and created bonds across the Nation.
Always a traveler, he migrated to Tampa, FL after receiving his General Education Diploma. Supreme reunited with his uncle, Prince TruBorn, to continue their Nephunk Brothers Project. In the process the group, The Black Gypsies, was formed. Supreme continued to build on the Mechanics of Self and Growth. He continued his righteous walk.
At the age of 19, he met his Queen Ebony. At the age of 22, they certified their union. He assumed the role of father and the responsibility of their oldest daughter, whom had never seen her father since he returned to the Essence. Supreme Sun loved fatherhood and manifested three more understandings. Supreme created his Universe.
Together, he and his Earth formed a group called Mannie & Wifey, and together they developed and nurtured Black Love which matured into Black Love entertainment. They performed and shopped their EP to Mary J. Blige and Dr. Dre.
Supreme was considered being before his time. He continued to make strides in the industry and he constantly kept his ear to the culture and community. In 2004, he produced his first EP titled The Black Love Album. The Campaign sold over 75,000 units and garnered much attention.
Supreme was eventually led to attend Music Production/Engineering School based in Atlanta, GA, which was managed by seasoned veterans in the Music industry. While attending school, he and his baby sister whom he named, "Qua Qua", created videos for fun. They would call the vids GhettoTV.
While in school Supreme met a student named Jewlz. He noticed that they shared a common goal of breaking through the industry. They put their resources together and produced 7 Volumes and 5 Special Bonus Scene DVDs of GhettoTV.
GhettoTV captured all facets of the culture from music, business, politics, and the grass roots. It was informative and entertaining. Supreme graced the presence of many main stream artists and buffs with the camera.
