The Reunion by Jin x LS x Snacky Chan

For those who remember the early days of Asian American rap, The Reunion is here! Back in 2004, three MC’s (Jin x LS x Snacky Chan) first got together to re-create GZA’s classic record, “4th Chamber,” for Jin’s “The Definition of History” mixtape. The result was an underground banger which set the internet world on fire. Seven years later, these three pioneers of Asian American hip hop show that they are still here and dope as ever. This is an original production created by Ray Hill who also appears as the main vocalist in the chorus.

It’s a great track bringing the past to the present as we still see these guys in the game. Asian American music has made a lot of progress since these guys started the movement. Far East Movement hitting the top of the Billboard charts with Like a G6 is just the tip of the iceberg. We expect more Asian American artists to burst on the scene. Props to Jin x LS x Snacky Chan who helped pave the way.

With Jin’s other recent track “Charlie Sheen” with Traphik and Dumbfoundead, looks like he might be hitting up everyone on the A List.

Lyrics to The Reunion by Jin x LS x Snacky Chan

Bruce Lee Intro:

When I look around I always learn something and that is to be always yourself.
And to express yourself, to have faith in yourself.

Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. Now that seems to me that is the prevalent thing.

Chan’s Verse:

If im free whys it feel like im on lock in a prison bid?
Wish i was illiterate to that talk on the internet
Friends by my side at the drop of a dime
Lookin back its all because my name was hot at the time
They wanted a part of my shine without workin the grind
Respect is what i earned
Wit Every line that i rhymed
I never thought id be the underdog
An asian version of mickey ward
Hungry aint the word man im starved
I wanna see progress thats all im askin
At least An asian got the lead role in ninja assasin
Catch u slippin its a Mistake if u thinkin
Jin wont kill the competition off the dome cuz he christian
Ever since he got shot LS is in pain
Still makin mad moves although he walk wit a cane
Big Chan im so HAM an OG of the movement
Im goin in on this official 4th chamber reunion.

Chorus:

Let me live my life, let me see the light.
Them haters wanna see me go down.
Let me see the light, let me live my life.
I’m still here and I ain’t goin down.

Let me live my life ay ay ay
Let me see the light ay ay ay
Let me live my life ay ay ay
Let me see the light ay ay ay

Jin’s verse:

Chorus

LS’s verse:

They wanna know where the kid went… and where the kid at
You might find me in a suit now… still striddapped
You might find me in a coupe wondering… where your chick at?
She with me now but only for the moment ’til i hit that
Yup! Sum things never change man
But honestly i’m a changed man
And the game plan just to be blatant
Rep my peoples til i’m six feet in the pavement
Diplomatic so i deserve immunity
And i dont need a verdict to serve my community
I do it voluntarily because it feels right
optimistically inclined to do what i feel like
I’m still fly, i stay Mikey Freshed to death with it
You still lying, i could see through your best lyrics
You need to step with it cause you could never be the best
I was… am… and always will be LS.. let me live!
