Prodigal Sunn was the only child of American and West Indian parents and grew up in Brooklyn. His cousin is RZA. During his youth, Prodigal was known as the 'Sun of Man' and was later re-christened "Prodigal Sunn" by childhood friend Killah Priest in reference to the well known parable in Luke chapter 15, verse 32. Along with Hell Razah and 60 Second Assassin, they would form the first group associated with the Wu-Tang Clan known as Sunz of Man. Prior to the groups affiliation with Wu-Tang Clan they were known as Da Last Future. They would go on to release two studio albums, The Last Shall Be First in 1998 and Saviors Day in 2002 (Prodigal served as the executive producer). Compilation albums furthered the group's cause. Prodigal Sunn is a man with the essence of the road running in his veins, growing up traveling back and forth between New York (Brooklyn) and The South.
Prodigal built a reputation as one of the more socially conscious and lyrically deep artists associated with the Wu family. True to his restless spirit, he would cross the Atlantic and become and International sensation winning a Grammy Award in France for La Saga by IAM featuring Royal Fam & Prodigal Sunn and a VIVA Award in Germany for "Ich lebe für Hip Hop" by DJ Tomekk featuring GZA & Prodigal Sunn. He was one of the first artists approached by LRG Clothing for a sponsorship with numerous full page ads running in XXL, Source, URB and many more publications.
