You gotta feel for Jin. After a promising welcome by Ruff Ryders, this exceptional MC has been struggling to make his voice heard. ABC shows Jin going the way of Coco Lee-another Asian-American artist marketed to foreign audiences, rather than his US fans-a depressing reflection of the music industry's continuing attitude towards Asian-Americans in 2007. ABC cries for a stronger producer: Jin's raps surge with passion but require edits, with misdirected food references and a dated pop sensibility catering to overseas listeners. Don't give up, Jin: Asian-Ams will wait for your next American album, forever.
