“You’re Fired!” Jin the Emcee featuring Donald Trump
New York, NY -- International Rap Superstar Jin The Emcee has joined forces with one of the biggest balers this side of the Atlantic to discs Rosie O’Donnell for her remarks about Asians. Rosie O’Donnell is making major enemies all across the board! While she is currently been in the media for her very public feud with Donald Trump she has also incurred the wrath of the lyrical, lethal weapon, Jin The Emcee.
Most hip hop fans are familiar with Jin from his consecutive winning streak on Bet's 106 and Park. He rhymed his way into the hearts of millions and went on to become the freestyle champion of “Fight Club” coming home with cash prizes and more. Jin released his debut album The Rest Is History, and has sold over 200,000 copies worldwide.
Jin is also known for his creative rhymes that are always peppered with social and political commentary. A few years ago when Jin heard the highly, offensive song, “USA for Indonesia” created by Hot 97 he came back with a diss song of his own, “F%$k The Tsunami Song”. Now he’s at it again with “You’re Fired!” featuring Donald Trump and breaking it down in English and Cantonese. Jin responds to why he created the song, "I recorded the song basically for the same reason she decided to do her little 'ching chong' bit: that's just how I am."
Because of the lack of positive images of Asian people on television and in popular culture there has been a new music and entertainment network created to give artist like Jin a platform to launch his videos, performances etc called MTV Chi. Jin is on their flagship artist and he recently headlined the MTV Chi Concert and performed his self-titled single from his new album, ABC (American Born Chinese). With MTV Chi coming on board to support the project and premiering the video for ABC, Jin has the potential to not only reach not only his fans in the U.S. but also millions of fans worldwide. The album will be released by Crafty Catch between his company with partners Kamel Pratt and Carl Choi, in conjunction with Raptivism Records. Imperial Records, the new urban marketing division of EMI/Caroline will provide marketing support.
