This is what I’ve been doing in these past weeks. Been out in Hong Kong and stopped by Singapore to see some friends. Stop sittin’ at your desk crunching numbers in a cubicle. Cuz broke ass people like me is living the life and going international!
Go get yourself a passport and use it, you guys won’t regret it.
And while I was there I copped MC Jin’s new cd, Homecoming.
Its his second all Cantonese album, released by Catch Music Group. I popped it in and opened up my ears. The music has a completely different feel from all of his previous albums, and it makes sense. He’s a born-again Christian and got married all within these past 3 years or so. The album has a really warm and welcoming sound to it (sometimes a bit poppy). He never really goes hard in the album. Its all very mellow and personal. Overall I like a couple of the songs but I think his ABC album was better (maybe because I’m an ABC too…).
And why I am taking time to talk about Jin? Well..because 10 years ago this Chinese dude from Miami showed up on BET and tore the stage up, reppin it for us Asians. Yea…that was 10 years ago, but all of us can still remember his battles and his lines. Fast forward to the present and this dude is a Hip Hop star in HK, not to mention an actor as well. He’s found success overseas, and maybe one day he’ll be back in the US officially. So I leave you with this…aiyah!
