Sum / Press

“....SumKid has built quite the career on being a creative and unique individual. To say he bucks the usual trends in hip-hop would be an understatement. From The Lil Folk, to The Nobody Hole, to “Chuck Norris on Drugs,” everything SumKid does is a multilayered piece of art.”

“The Lil Folk has brought me an emcee I can’t help but gush excitedly about. Sum has range, depth, and the ability to see well beyond both the mainstream and underground content conventions.”

"....consistently honest, enlightening, and sometimes even hilarious rhymes. Definitely somebody to look out for in 2007 and beyond."

“Sum’s style is Def Jux soaked in emotion, it's Andre 3000 starved and done wrong, it's a dictionary-toting backpacker's true envy. … Truth be told, it's a wild ride!”


"Sum is as good a wordsmith I've ever heard in hip-hop."

“Searing and true, it's like God finally delivered the new standard for dismissing punks (sorry Guru).....So many emotions are sprayed, so much personal buckshot is scattered, it's nearly impossible to describe.”

“At this point I'm highly impressed with the amount of pop culture references that Sum is able to cram into every song. From Chuck Norris to Theo Huxtable, Marlon Brando or the Ninja Turtles, everything is fair game and makes for a very entertaining and interesting listen.”

“It's only suitable that this extraordinary indie artist ....fabricate the most interestingly awesome conceptual song discussing popular culture while infusing many national and global issues...”

“This is one of my favorite new emcees. He’s got a flow that makes you nod your head and a vocabulary that doesn’t make educated folk cringe....and the flow slowly tied me to my chair.”

“When [an MC] rattles off nods to Billy Joel, the Talking Heads, and a litany of whiskeys in [his]first lines, you know you're in good company...”
