Since NBA basketball player, Jeremy Lin’s (林書豪) breakout performance for the New York Knicks in February, his on court dominance has become the source of pride for Asians all over the world. It turned out that rap artist and actor, Jin Au Yeung 歐陽靖 (also known as MC Jin), was Jeremy Lin’s good friend and a big fan as well! Jin wrote his new song, Nick of Time as a tribute to the basketball sensation making waves across the globe!
According to On.cc, Jin met Jeremy Lin in person via mutual friends half a year ago. Jin and Jeremy maintained regular contact through e-mails over the last several months. Both stars were bound by strong Christian beliefs and their experiences as Asian Americans growing up in the United States.
On February 9, 2012, Jin uploaded the song, Nick of Time on YouTube.com. Jin was proud of Jeremy’s achievements and felt compelled to write a tribute song, which was written when Jeremy was still playing for Oakland, California’s basketball team, the Golden State Warriors. However, Jin felt that his first attempt was unsatisfactory and thus never released it to the public.
In the song lyrics for Nick of Time, Jin celebrated the heroics of Jeremy Lin, the notion of “chasing greatness” in life, and that obstacles encountered must be overcome. Jin also expressed gratitude in God for his love and grace, making all such achievements possible. With gospel overtones, the song incorporated sound clips of Jeremy Lin in the song, reflecting his attitude towards success and the inspiration that he finds in God.
Listen to MC Jin’s “Nick In Time”!

Jayne: “Nick In Time” is quite an inspiring song from MC Jin! I heard that Linsanity is enormous in Taiwan and China; the levels in USA are not even close!
