What's the deal with Jin?

He now calls him self "the emcee" and has been talking about how he couldn't make any money on a major label but now is getting $4 a record on an indie.

Does anyone know the full story?

I feel this guy is super talented and wish he could come out with a record to reflect that!

I work with an artist close to Jin and I have worked with Jin on a couple tracks for one of his mixtapes. Jin basically wasn't happy with the way his record was promoted, the records that he sold were basically bought by his core fanbase. So he figures if he has a strong 150,000 fans, he'll make more money independently than on a major.

Either way, he should have dropped an album like 3 years ago, when he had that big buzz around him.

Just my opinion
