Shortly after I arrived in Hong Kong, God aligned my path with Carl Choi’s (MC Jin’s manager) and he gave me the opportunity shoot behind-the-scenes during Jin’s cantonese album art shoot.
Jin is one of the most humble people I’ve ever met… grateful, amazing work ethic, kind, and passionate. We had a simple meal of fried eggs and tomatoes over rice for lunch at a local bing sutt cafe, and listened to worship while traveling in his friend’s car all around HK. It was a pretty awesome day. He also let me preview some of the tracks that he’ll be releasing on his first English album in 5 years. I had to hold back my tears when I heard one of them. The rest I listened to are powerful; lyrically and melodically. I’m excited for the release of this album and for people to hear it because I believe he’s achieved what he has been striving for…life changing music.
Head over to his facebook page to see more photos and like his page so you can be the first to hear about his album! You can also follow him on twitter (he is insanely active on there, if you tweet him he will likely tweet you back) and check out the video that Carl directed on Jin’s website.
Thanks again to Carl for the opportunity!
