Former battle rap champ Jin is making his way back into the spotlight as a Christian rapper signed to Universal Hong Kong.

Now a born again Christian residing in Hong Kong, Jin has changed the content of his music, but still manages to showcase his lyrical prowess.

Recently Jin released a new track titled “Welcome to the Light Club,” which is fueled by a catchy beat.

Here is an except from the track:

"I got a session booked for7 and its 6:35/ so I got 25 minutes to conjure up this rhyme/its been a long time right stepped away from the limelight/ but the breaks over Holy Spirit takeover/they say the truth will set you free if you so believe/ Jesus is the truth with Him freedom can be achieved"

Via his ayojin.com webpage, Jin chronicles his adventures in this new lifestyle and he describes one trip by saying, "Did a quick performance, gave a testimony and just enjoyed God’s presence."

Jin initially gained his popularity as the "Freestyle Friday Champ” on BET's 106 and Park, then went on to sign with the Ruff Ryders.


In 2004, Jin released his debut album, The Rest Is History, which garnered the lead single “Learn Chinese.”

He also made his acting debut in a the blockbuster film 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The last I heard of Jin is when he got totally clowned in a freestyle battle. He tried to come all hard and the dude just made fun of him with some hilarious shit. It was obvious that Jin is an idiot and cant actually freestyle bc he kept going with his hard pre written rhymes that made him look fucking retarded. I guess he needed Jesus after that.

Jin had one really dope album (the undergound release after his Ruff Rider album). And a very strong mixtape (that felt like an album) after that. He will always be a very talented rapper. Musically, I'm not sure I will be able to vibe with his new material, but I'll give it a shot just off his skills alone. As someone said, this is his journey. Props to Jin.
