Goin’ in.

As previously mentioned,  I have officially begun to work on a new English album set to be released sometime later this year. Also as previously mentioned, this will be my first official English album release in five years since my previous one in 2006.

Excited anyone?

How should I describe what the album is shaping out to sound like so far? If I had to do so with one word, it’d be this: monumental.

I may be jumping the gun I suppose, since I’m  technically only two days into recording. Then again, maybe I’m not jumping the gun because the first two days have simply been nothing short of phenomenal.

Here’s some visuals courtesy of my mac photobooth..

Me tracking some vocals and Tony capturing the entire (and I literally mean entire) studio experience on HD.

The man behind the boards. Producer and recording engineer extraordinaire Devcon.

This guy stopped by so I figured we’d do a few joints. Yes, one for the ladies.

Here’s something I thought was fascinating. 2011 actually marks the 10 year anniversary of me being on  BET and signing with Ruff Ryders, which also is how long I’ve been doing this music thing as a profession. Yet, as I’ve been in the studio these past two days I can’t help but feel like I just got signed and this is my first album ever.

I’m confident enough to say that this is my best work yet. For certain I believe (or at least hope) that it will be the most impactful.

I’ll let you be the judge.

  27. Tom Clements Says:

    By the way Jin, do you think the pen/sword relationship is dialectical or merely binary? As a writer of lyrics, I’d hoped you might be able to help me…
