Aircom is proud to be a part of the MC Jin 14:59 album and tour. The journey begins with the album release event at the Sayers Club in LA, hosted by Power 106 DJ and MTV2 Host Mando Fresko. In front of a sell out crowd, with the help of Mando, MC Jin curated and performed the new album.
“It’s definitely the most conceptually focused album I’ve ever worked on over the last 10-plus years,” the former Freestyle Friday rapper told BET.com of his forthcoming studio effort. “I’m feeling re-inspired and refocused."
Jin quickly became known as the “Chinese kid who could rap,” devouring his opponents in 106 & Park's weekly rap battles. He eventually was etched into the Hall of Fame and became the first Asian rapper to sign to a major label when he dropped his Ruff Ryders debut, The Rest Is History, in 2004. But after his two singles, "Learn Chinese" and "Senorita," failed to top the charts, Jin retreated from the hip hop spotlight.
During his time away, Jin migrated back to his native country, China, and found musical inspiration in Hong Kong. The inspiration behind his first English album in almost 10 years forced Jin to treat this album like it could be his last.
“All I’m saying is, what do you do with that last second of your 15 minutes of fame?” Jin asked. “That’s were the 14:59 comes from. Your'e looking at the clock and it’s 59 seconds left. 'This is it, Jin.'”
Aircom was on set for the filming of Complicated the first music video from MC Jin’s 14:59 album, featuring vocal sensation Hollis, known for her chorus line in Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s “White Walls” track.
