From battle rapper to Christian rapper?!

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. [AllHipHop.com]
But it seems a new day is dawning:

"My name is Jin Au-Yeung. Born and raised in Miami, Florida. I currently reside in Hong Kong. I love God. I love my family. I love music."


"So I put up this new joint that I recorded about a week agao called "Welcome to the Light Club" and I've be getting alot feedback on it, and I just wanna say thanks for the feedback, good or bad. But what actually caught me off gurad and caught me by surpirse is there's been alot of websites to feature the song or write about the song as well.

Someone told me that there was a forum on a Christian Hip Hop site, HolyCulture.net where someone posted the link in a thread and they were just writing and talking and discussing about it, giving feedback, so shoutout to them. Another one that wrote about it was uh, someone told me about it, I didnt even see it myself but they sent me the link. AllHipHop.com wrote about it... good or bad they write about everything, so yeah, shoutout to AllHipHop. But they also did an article about Jin becomng a Christian Rapper.

So I just wanted to take a moment to talk about this. Because I've been getting alot of emails too, as well as on my MySpace page people asking, "So Jin, I'm hearing that you're a Christian rapper now, is that true?" That's a good question. And I don't think it's a "yes or no" answer that I need to give you guys. Actually, I just want to elaborate. Am I Christian.. yes I am. Do I rap.. yeah! I still do....

Yeah I still rap, Yes I'm a Christian. And does that make me Christian rapper? Hey, I'll let you call it: "
