Seed to Sun is the first studio album by American hip hop musician Boom Bip. It was released in 2002 on Lex Records.

Reception[edit]

John Bush of AllMusic gave the album 4.5 stars out of 5, saying: "It's experimental hip-hop being done on a level reached by few producers out there."[1] By contrast, Sam Chennault of Pitchfork Media said that "when his hand is too strong, and he attempts to place the noises within a more traditional song structure, it's an embarrassing failure."[4]

Liane Cameron of Drowned in Sound called it "a unified effort, a dark sunshine storyline to brighten up your mood anytime."[3]
