Chinese-American rap artist and actor, MC Jin (歐陽靖), posted a photo of his newborn son, Chance, on his personal blog on June 4th. Turning 30 years old recently, the devout Christian was excited in becoming a father and enter a new stage in life. Apparently, he also decided it was time to leave Hong Kong and move back to New York.
After filming TVB drama, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>, Jin halted his work in Hong Kong to return to New York. He wished to accompany his wife, Carol, in the final weeks of her pregnancy. It was understood that Carol gave birth to their first baby, Chance on June 1st. Appreciative of the pain that all mothers endure in childbirth, Jin wrote on his blog, “A word to The Wife…You are amazing.”
Moves Back to New York
After making a name for himself as a rap artist in the United States, MC Jin released the Cantonese rap song, ABC, in 2007. In the song, Jin introduced himself as an ABC or American-Born Chinese. The humorous lyrics resonated with numerous overseas born Chinese. After trying to push his rap music career to greater heights in Hong Kong and acting in TVB, he decided to move back to the United States.
Jin wrote, “After living in Hong Kong for 4 years, it felt like my experience there was nearing its end and it was time to transition into the next chapter of whatever God has in store for me.” With his wife, Carol, living in New York, Jin, and his newborn son’s birth, Jin may have felt the need to return to the United States to be more involved with the family.
Jin aptly titled his new English rap song, Brand New Me, to reflect the recent changes in his life.

The name, Chance, is quite meaningful, in which we need to take chances in love, in career, and many other things. There is no absolute certainty, but we take a chance because of belief and a need for change. I remember reading a romance novel where the hero’s name was Chance, so I do like the name a lot.
