Jin Explains Barack Obama Tribute
Former Ruff Ryders MC, Jin, has released a new song, “Open Letter To Obama,” dedicated to Democratic Presidential nominee, Barack Obama. “I just want to craft a record where I could express my personal point of view in regards to the election and hopefully spark some interest in those who may not have any intention of making their votes count,” Jin says. “I think Obama brings a fresh new perspective to the current state of political affairs. The upcoming election in particular is a great opportunity for many within and outside of the hip-hop community to make some changes that they are constantly seeking.” During the song, Jin praises Obama for his “bipartisan ways” and being opposed to the war in Iraq from the start. “I turn 25 this year so I definitely want to take this gift of making music and use it in a more meaningful manner,” Jin says. “Open Letter To Obama” is the first release from Jin’s upcoming LP, From This Day On. The single will eventually be released on iTunes and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Obama campaign.
