His name is Jin — short for Jin Auyeung.
But as a high-schooler in Miami, he was better known as "the Chinese kid who raps," a reputation he's developed after frequenting local talent shows and rap competitions.
In 2004, at 22, he became the first Asian-American to release a solo rap album on a major label in the U.S.
Last night the Stellar’s gave the award for best Hip Hop album to Xist recording artist Da T.R.U.T.H. His album ‘The Whole Truth’ won over Json’s 'Growing Pains', Flame’s 'The 6th' and Trip Lee’s 'The Good Life'. It was a great group of nominations.
This is Da T.R.U.T.H’s third Stellar award, he won for ‘The Faith’ and ‘Open Book’ in previous years. His album Love, Hope & War comes out on January 29, 2013; check out the track listing and album cover for it. Congratulations to Da T.R.U.T.H. for winning another Stellar award!
