Prominent Chinese American rap artist Jin the MC was interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News about his new album, ABC, which drops approximately now-ish. Of particular interest in the interview:

Q: What do you see as your strategy as an artist now?

A: Just redirecting the energy on a more personal level . . . in terms of the people. . . . Like, let’s say I have 90,000 friends in my MySpace network. . . . If there’s 10 percent of that network that wants the album from Jin, then, damn it, I’m going to sell it.

Show-off.
