"Now whether one person gets it or a million the message isn't lost." #JinAuYeung

Ever wonder what #AsianAmerican helped break the color barrier in the hip hop scene? And no, he was not born in Asia, but in #Miami, #Florida.
#JinAuYeung aka #MCJIn was born in Miami, to #HongKong immigrants, where his parents owned a Chinese restaurant. In 2001, he moved to #NewYork to pursue his passion.

In 2002, he hit the national stage with live appearances on BET's music-video countdown show 106 & Park.

For seven consecutive weeks, he dominated the program's "Freestyle Friday" rap battles, fending off his challengers' ethnic insults with rapid-fire retorts like: "Yeah, I'm Chinese / Now you understand it / I'm the reason that his little sister's eyes are slanted / If you make one joke about rice or karate / NYPD be in Chinatown searching for your body."
His success led to his signing with the hip-hop label Ruff Ryders Entertainment as the first mainstream Asian-American rapper. It set the entertainment world abuzz.

In 2004, at 22, MC Jin became the first Asian-American to release a solo rap album on a major label in the U.S.

More than a decade later, MC Jin has sold thousands of records, won awards and even acted in TV shows and movies β€” not in America, but in Hong Kong. To this day, MC Jin continues to be the most recognizable Asian American Hip Hop artist. Unfortunately, other #AsianAmericans hip hop artists have not been able to create the same levels of success and popularity in America as their African-American, Caucasian, and Latino counterparts. Research has shown that Asian American hip hop artists lack of marketability to the identity of politics of Asian Americans not fitting the traditionally image of #HipHop.

The wrap party for "Coco," directed by RZA, was easily the most fun I've had on a Wednesday night. And I bet the film is going to break Azaelia Banks BIG. (Not that she isn't already.) Thanks @qi41 @rza #azaeliabanks #jinauyeung

#FlashbackFriday to 1/9/2015

Some of you may remember him for his cameo on #2fast2furious as "Jimmy"! For me, I remember @iammcjin
as the dude who absolutely killed it on #106andpark's #FreeStyleFriday on #BET back in 2002, getting inducted into their wall of fame... parlaying that into a brief stint with the #RuffRyders!
After a long 13 year wait, I finally had the honour & pleasure of finally meeting #MCjin in person during his brief, one-day visit to #Toronto! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‡­πŸ‡°πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ€πŸŽ§ #JinThaEmcee #JinTheMC #JinAuYeung #ChineseRapper #CantoneseRapper #Raptors #AsianRapper #The6ix #RobartsLibrary #Robarts #UofT #UniversityOfToronto #FREESTYLEMC #RuffRydersEntertainment #ABCmeetsCBC #HipHop #FuriousFriday #AZNrapper #Canada
