Jin tha MC has done it again! Not content to stop at the Tsunami response, or at going after Rosie O’Donnell, Jin tha MC has released a track paying homage to the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy. From Idolator.com:

Shortly after we posted about Lil’ Flip’s half-touching, half-“WTF?” tribute to the Virginia Tech victims, an eagle-eyed commenter alerted us to an earlier, more tasteful in-memoriam freestyle by Chinese-American rapper Jin (who, unlike Lil’ Flip, is not pushing a recently released album). Using a hook from “Rain Rain Go Away”–surely, someone can help us figure out the original source–Jin manages conveys respect and regret without resorting to the easy emotion of a Cyndi Lauper sample (the news conference audio snippet at the end, however, reminds us uncomfortably of that Bruce Springsteen/Jerry Maguire song).

Cop the track at the link below.
