Masters of the Sun - App Review


Posted on November 27th, 2017


From the brilliant mind of WILL.I.AM and the global music group Black Eyes Peas comes an app that has been over four (4) plus years in the making.  If you are not familiar with WILL.I.AM he is world-renounced song writer, producer, entrepreneur, actor and philanthropist.

Masters of the Sun is one of the best apps that we have seen. The quality is amazing and so are the artists who contributed to the voices in the app. This is an AR (Augmented Reality) app that really brings this masterpiece to life. There is a graphic novel that is sold separately. You will want to get the novel because it really takes the app to the next level. The novel can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Walmart and other retailers.  In addition, the book can be something of a collector's item as well. You simply place your Smartphone over the pages of the book as you follow the pages.  If you have ever wondered what it is like to see a book come alive, that is exactly what Masters of the Sun does and more.

Masters of the Sun "mixes L.A. Gang culture, B-Boy-ism and Egyptology to tell the heroic tale of a Hip-Hop group from East L.A. who must battle an ancient, alien God sent to earth to continue a Black Curse--which turns drug dealers and gangsters into zombies! With a deep love of the Hip-Hop culture, Zulu-X and his crew go head-to-head with a nefarious ancient order that has infiltrated the inner cities to settle an ancient score." The setting of the app takes place in 1980. The app has a very strong message in the storyline.

While that quote comers from the authors, it is worth noting that you do not have to be a hip-hop fan to enjoy this app. If you are not a hip-hop fan the craftsmanship alone of this app, coupled with an amazing voice roster will make you open up your eyes to a new world. The app has a distribution partner in Marvel Comics. In case you have been living under a rock, Marvel Comics characters are well-known heroes such as Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and countless others.

The voices that contributed to the app are:

Master Sun: Rakim
Narrator: Stan Lee
Dj Eddie Flip: Slick Rick
Sonny: Raekwon

Zulu X: KRS-One

While most Smartphone's today have a lot of memory, Masters of the Sun is 1.95 GB. The file size is large simply due to the high function and quality of the app. In addition, the sounds effects are amazing. Needless to say you will not be disappointed. Our summary is that this is a must have app that clearly has a message in its story. It will also change the way you look at other apps moving forward.

Masters of the Sun is available in the App Store and Google Play.
