Jin Says He Was "The Justin Bieber Of Hong Kong"

Jin explains his career progression and says at one point he was one of the biggest musical acts in China.

American-born rapper MC Jin has had an interesting career to say the least. His hopping between the United States and Hong Kong has both widened and shrunken his fan bases respectively.

Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, Jin talked about just how big he was in Hong Kong and China at his peak.

"When I say I was the Justin Bieber, I meant in Hong Kong specifically," Jin said when asked about his buzz at the highest point of his career. "If you magnify that to China as a whole, it may shrink, I may not be Justin Bieber, I may be Robin Thicke."

The battle rapper's buzz has diminished in both the United States and China, however he is still going and has apparently learned numerous life lessons along the way. Jin says his ego has been lowered and even goes as far as to say he "doesn't deserve" the fame he's received.

"I don't think I deserve any of this, I don't deserve what I got when I went to Hong Kong," he explained when reflecting on his career. "I think I'm learning more and more that once upon a time where I thought I was really unique and really special in terms of like my skill and my talent and my identity like, 'I got mad things I can bring to the table.' I'm just learning that that might not be the case."

Also during the interview, MC Jin explains why he moved back to the U.S. after years overseas and how he received his initial fame.

    Serius Jones hurt this kid.. I think that's why he had to move away. Seems like a good dude, but that "Learn Chinese" was the some Sambo shit..

    • Anonymous

      Serious Jones is a fucking bum. At least Jin had one major label album and was in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Jones can't even land a Taco Bell commercial.

  • THA GUCCI MANE ARMY

    Its time for a change for years the Ja rule comments were flooding this site but that has changed now. At one point it was funny but now it got old and people automatically just disregard comments about ja rule. It has gotten to the point where its so repetitive that even hhdx moderators delete the comment. THE JA RULE ARMY IS FINISHED JA RULE HAS BEEN IRRELEVENT. Its time for a new beggining its time for the GUCCI MANE ARMY TO RISE AND ASSEMBLE. From now on i expect comments to be about BIG GUWOP GUCCI MANE. Because GUCCI MANE is the realest nigga and he deserves respect for being the ONLY nigga saving gangster rap and being a real nigga in the rap game. GUCCI MANE ARMY ASSEMBLE!!!!!!

    Notice how the white boys always have something to say about Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Hebrews, Arabs, when they always follow and watch us. Do we all follow them and spew racism? American minority, do you stalk the White American to spew racism amongst their websites? Why do they do it to us? American minority, could you even name their music genre major website?

    • Anonymous

      I don't see white bashing, can you name some sites? Thank you. Also I would like to know some of the other major music sites' names, the OP has brought up an interesting subject to research.

      Yes you do, all the time.

    • ab

      stop bitching....theres plenty of white bashing on all minority websites but white people enjoy these sites unfortunately where the minorities don't frequent well educated websites..the whites degrade themselves by coming to the shit hole sites

  • LMAO

    Did he have a peak of his career? LOL I only remember he had a very lame song 'Learn Chinese'. I bet in China (and Hong Kong) there are tons of acts that are better than this lil wanna be. And I think Chinese rappers rap Chinese, Yao, Cantonese, and so, but NOT in English. Fuck Jin.

      @ LOLOLOLOLOL We can see you are a Caucasian bigot. I can also tell that response is from a Black person. Caucasians have a white on white crime problem, concentrate on cleaning your own house before you point at someone else's mess. Thank you.

    • LOLOLOLOLOLOL

      also, why are you a g00k pretending to be black right now? black people don't like g00ks either, nobody does

    • LOLOLOLOLOLOL

      I have a question for you as well...why do you commit crimes and then blame white people when you get arrested?

    • Anonymous

      zipperhead=white boy military racist talk If you lepers hate us so much why do you follow us? I don't even know a Hispanic, Hindu or Arabic music website like HHDX. Why do you white racists spend your time on sites filled with nigg3r music when we all pay no attention to you and yours?

      Losing $300,000 for Ross was a big hit regardless of how much money he has. At the end of the day Ross got mad because Vlad made a comment about Ross being a C.O. Also, the reason Ross was mad is because Vlad gets a lot of traffic from his site and those comments reached a wide fan base. Probably the reason he can't go gold to save his life.
