Chinese-American Hip-Hop Icon MC Jin Announces Campaign with PledgeMusic
As the 10th anniversary of his first English album released via Ruff Ryders nears, MC Jin will release a highly anticipated collection of songs on "14:59"
Multi-talented rapper and actor Jin Au-Yeung, also known as MC Jin, has announced a PledgeMusic campaign for his second full-length English album, "14:59," set for release on October 19th, 2014.
MC Jin commented: "PledgeMusic is a great platform for me to begin the process of "14:59." Rather than just asking, "here's my album, buy it", I'm able to invite each fan to be a part of this journey, from the creative process to the final release. With this campaign, I'm hoping to capture for my fans what the past 10 years has entailed since my debut album."
Since making his American appearance on the music scene more than a decade ago, MC Jin has racked up a long list of impressive accomplishments and became a pioneer in the hip-hop genre by breaking down barriers with his diverse talent. He first garnered national attention in 2002 when he stunned audiences with his talent on BET's 106 and Park Freestyle Fridays. In 2004, he became the first Asian-American to release a solo rap album on a major label in the U.S. and catapulted to fame in China. A decade later, MC Jin is a celebrated name in Hong Kong, has sold hundreds of thousands of records, and won numerous awards for his acting roles in Film and TV.
As the 10th anniversary of his first English album released via Ruff Ryders nears, MC Jin will release a highly anticipated collection of songs on "14:59" and is inviting his dedicated fanbase to come along for the journey. As the first PledgeMusic campaign to be translated into Chinese, MC Jin will offer his fans exclusive opportunities, content and merchandise upon pledging support. Fans can receive special experiences and items such as credit in album liner notes, a spirited basketball game with Jin, a name drop in an upcoming song, and a music video cameo.
