For you younger generation of Asian-Americans, you may have been too young to remember Jin. Not that Jin’s disappeared — but for a solid 4-6 months, much of us 80s babies were witnessing the potential rise of an Asian rapper during our college days.
Jin took BET’s Freestyle Friday by storm and impressed the hip hop community enough that he ended up inking a deal with DMX’s label, Ruff Ryder Records. At his height, Jin even landed a small role in the second Fast and the Furious installment, 2 Fast 2 Furious.
Lately, Jin’s been doing smaller tours and appearances, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this random freestyle he posted onto youtube hanging out with Traphik.
The boy can spit 🙂
