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


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]
